The St. Ermin's Hotel is situated in a quiet courtyard set back from the bustling streets of Westminster in central London. This 4-star de luxe hotel is a great base for those wishing to visit London's top tourist attractions such as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Oxford Street and Westminster Abbey. The whole of London can easily be accessed via the underground with St James's Park underground station just a short walk away.
The hotel has 331 spacious rooms and suites, all of which have been designed to make guests feel at home. Luxuries like crisp bed linens, sumptuous soft furnishings and White Company products in the bathroom help guests to relax and forget about the busy streets of London outside.
St Ermin's signature restaurant, Adam Handling at Caxton, serves modern European food in relaxed and genial surroundings. Caxton Bar and Caxton Terrace, with views overlooking the courtyard, provide a great place to have a drink after a busy day .
In 1940 Winston Churchill held a historic meeting at St Ermin's Hotel. He asked a group of remarkable people to join him in 'setting Europe ablaze' - this elite set were to become the founding members of the SOE (Special Operations Executive). The unit carried out covert operations during the second world war from their headquarters - an entire floor of St Ermin's Hotel - while MI6 were stationed two floors above. In the 1950s the spy Guy Burgess (part of the infamous Cambridge five) handed over secret papers to his Russian counterpart in the Caxton Bar. St. Ermin's continues to play an important part in London's history, as it is rumoured that a tunnel runs from underneath the grand staircase in the lobby all the way to the Houses of Westminster.
The St Ermin's Hotel is also home to more than 200,000 Buckfast bees, good-tempered honey bees that reside in three custom-built hives on St Ermin's rooftop. These lucky bees have fantastic access to London's parks, all within their 5km flight radius, to collect a wide variety of pollen and nectar, which in turn gives their honey a truly delicious taste.The honey they produce finds its way into various dishes throughout the hotel.
