    We had the pleasure of staying here for a few days while on a visit to family in the UK.
    The club is in a great location near the Wellington Memorial and Constitution Hill with a spectacular view of Buckingham Palace. We were fortunate enough to come out at exactly the time the Queen’s Royal Horseguards were on their way to the barracks at Knightsbridge. What a spectacular sight to see those magnificent soldiers on perfectly matched horses with armour sparkling in the morning sun. The club offered small but adequate accommodations, friendly and courteous staff in a historic setting with a formal dining room. We would definitely stay there again.

    I along with my other family members recently stayed at the Royal Air force Club in London. We completely enjoyed our stay. The property is elegant, historic and the location across from Green Park is excellent. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable. The staff treated us wonderfully and made us all feel welcome. The Running Horse Pub was a special place to hang out. I would highly recommend the RAF Club to all members should they be in London. The only regret we had was to leave before seeing the new memorial to the WWII RAF Bomber Crews, honoring their gallant service and sacrifices.

    What a privilege it was to stay at the RAF Club the week of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, September, 2010. As the only American staying there, I was able to mingle with those Englishmen who had gathered to commemorate the anniversary: I would see them at breakfast and then again on TV at night as they were being interviewed by the BBC….. In addition to this excitement was added the beatification of Blessed John Henry Newman, the reason I was in England. Nearby Hyde Park was preparing for the arrival of Pope Benedict XVI while I was there. All in all, lots of people watching at the RAF Club!

    The club itself is superb, better than the Naval Club where my husband and I had stayed in the past. Lots of memorabilia on the walls, a huge upstairs sitting room for tea or drinks. As I was hosting some English friends that week, this was a marvelous place to enjoy long hours of quiet (very RAF, that) conversation.

    Yes, the bedroom was small, but the bathroom was commodious, allowing for putting all sorts of shampoos, cosmetics, etc. on the counters. The main restaurant offered excellent meals as well as the usual classic English breakfast. Lots of newspapers. The pub offered adequate food, a special RAF ale and all without having to go outdoors in search of a simple bite.

    I look forward to returning.

    My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the RAF Club. Great location, comfortable rooms, very tasty and filling breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, lots of living history, … Everything that you would hope for in a residential club, the RAF Club provides.
    My wife was especially impressed when the staff looked after a travel weary and sleep deprived American family come stumbling into the lobby. We had our luggage stored, then were whisked off to breakfast and filled with all sorts of good things instead of being shooed out the door until check in time.
    First rate! Thank you.
    I would happily stay here again and would recommend it to all. Especially any aviators that want to see how our RAF colleagues honor their history.
