In the heart of Westminster stands the Sanctuary House - our grand hotel and Ale & Pie pub that offers fine food, warm hospitality and top class accommodation. You’ll find all the comforts of home, from our beautifully-appointed bedrooms to Fuller’s proper pies and pints. All our stylish bedrooms are available with en suite bathrooms, flatscreen TVs and little luxuries to help you enjoy a special stay in Westminster. As a Fuller’s Ale & Pie House, we are famous for our fantastic homemade pies - an authentic taste of London. There's chef's specials too, and an ever-changing bar menu. One of the best hotels near Big Ben, the Sanctuary House is just a couple of minutes walk away. The most famous sight in Britain, virtually on our doorstep.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

My husband and I just stayed here for a city break. It's very hard to find any fault. The location is fantastic, 2 mins walk from nearest train station and around the corner from Westminster Abbey. The room itself was really well equipped with extras we hadn't expected such as

Technically if I could it would be 4.5 stars, but at the same time, I highly recommend this hotel. I am a beer lover and the fact that it sits on top of a pub, well... My husband and I were in London for 3 nights and were traveling with my sister and best friend. We all stayed

No you wouldn't be able to see the fireworks from the hotel but it is only a short walk to the Houses of Parliament and the Eye so would be a good location.

Children did stay at this hotel, but were placed such that I did not hear them. I would check directly with the hotel for this question.

The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the multifarious complementary amenities in the room—the fridge, the Espresso machine, the electric hot-water pot, the variety of packets of cocoa, coffee, tea, biscuits/cookies—the spacious bathroom with ample towels, the umbrella shower-head, the perfect temperature of the hot water on a cold October night; the hotel's old-fashioned individuality; its access to the Ale and Pie pub downstairs with its splendid choices for breakfast; and most of all, its closeness to Parliament and the centre of London. It's impossible to narrow it down to one outstanding thing. The aspects I have named are merely parts of the whole Sanctuary House experience!

The twin beds are slightly larger than the standard American version. They were very comfortable and we just kept the beds separated. The bedding and linens are wonderful.

"South side, upper floor is ideal for quiet if you can get it"
"The people drinking and smoking outside the busy pub in the evening could be a noise issue on lower floors."
"Don't bother"
"We had a room in the back without a pretty view but it was very quiet."
