    My wife and I spent a week here from July 13 to July 20, 2011. The club was an excellent overall value and we would stay here again. I would argue that it is not a 4 star facility by US standards, but more a 2 1/2 to 3 star. We spent one night in a twin en suite room in the Memorial Wing before switching to the same type of room in the Centenary Wing. The Centenary Wing is where most US guests will be comfortable as the rooms are larger and have air conditioning.
    Tony, one of the Porters, was a BIG help. Gabby and Rita in the Lounge/Bar were very good. Service in the dining room was inconsistent, but leaned toward the poor. Food was excellent quality, however.
    Bus service and a tube station are quite handy. If the escalator in the tube station (Marble Arch) is not working there are about 125 steps each way to and from the trains from ground level.
    The overall feeling here was more hotel than private club, and that’s too bad.

    My wife and I stayed here one night on July 17, 2013. We had a room in the Centenary Wing. While the room was small by American standards, it was nonetheless clean well equipped and comfortable. Yes; it is more hotel like, but the staff without exception, make it feel more club like. We had an evening meal in the dining room with guests who were welcomed and treated like hotel guests and the service and food were both delightful. We had the club breakfast the next morning again with another guest who was welcomed and treated like a guest. The breakfast is served in a lower floor, windowless room, but was more than adequate. However, as said earlier, the staff, without exception, were exceptional in their professionalism and pleasant manner. For example, my flight back to the States was cancelled the next day and the staff tried very hard to find me an accommodation, but since it was Wimbledon week, they had no success. Then, later, we found we had left a lady’s raincoat behind. We called the hotel from the States and explained the problem. A staff member, Maren Fun, arranged to send it to my wife’s Mother’s home in the UK but when the delivery was unsuccessful to that address (may have had something to do with my wife’s 99 year old Mother) they resent it to us in the States. A very nice facility, in an excellent location for London touring and we would certainly use it again.

    We stayed at the Victory Services Club (VSC) on two occasions in September 2014 and were very pleased with the accommodations, the customer service, the food and the location. Tony Travis, head porter, was a great help- arranging a bus tour for us and providing lots of useful information. He even offered to store any extra suitcases while we went to Germany, in between our stays at VSC. All the porters, desk staff and bar staff were very helpful and pleasant. We did not eat in the dining room but made good use of the bar for dinner after long days of sightseeing. There is a good variety of reasonably priced food choices served in the bar and the seating is very comfortable. We opted for the Bed and Breakfast room rate and breakfast was good. We plan to stay at the VSC on our future trips to London.

    We stayed at the VSC for seven nights in July. It is an exceptional value for London. We found it to be clean and welcoming with a location that is very close to transit and Hyde Park (and virtually around the corner from Tony Blair’s home). The staff is very pleasant and bar prices are most reasonable for a major city. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Our tips: 1) opt for a better class of room, and 2) If you are planning to stay more than a couple of days, look into joining as a member or former member of a NATO armed service. It costs about $30 for a year and the member discount for your stay may be a lot more than that.
