Nothing like London town!

London... where do I even start! The red telephone booths, the double-decker buses, the taxies, the old historic buildings and even just the mail boxes! It was seeing the little things like that, that had me jumping around with joy and feeling like a crazed old lady. Well hey, at least I wasn't acting like one. Anyway, I was so excited!

The Birthday Secret Getaway!

A travel blog entry by sachi.newson


... good fun - projectors beaming the menu and games etc onto your table but in reality it was small, basic loud and the food wasn't very nice - I wouldn't bother going.

We headed to Leicester Square for a Haagen Daas to finish it off which was delicious.

Next morning we did a treasure hunt around London which was great fun and then went to see Matilda at the theatre - I was very spoilt all weekend and had a lovely time.


Day 26: The One With the Nostalgia...

A travel blog entry by linzandthehiv


... dinner, where we discussed our plans for the next day and long term plans for how in the world we were going to make it back to London. We're already planning the next trip and we haven't even finished this one!

The emotion for the night wasn't done pouring out of us yet. We walked "home" from the Tube station, after dinner, remarking to each other that much of our sadness really does stem from the fact that ...

The weather was fine but we started late..about 11am. We were going to a local carnival but at the last minute we headed up Cromwell Rd on foot, until we were tempted into the Albert and Victoria Museum, just in time to do a one hour guided tour of the galleries. The tour was very interesting and took in a number of major works from around the world and through the ages.

    Convenient hotel to stay!

    With the Bayswater tube station right around the corner, it definitely made my stay a lot more convenient! Breakfast provided, 24/7 service.. Although I did find the staff a little bit rude, unfriendly staff, and a bit noisy at night.. If you can look past all that, it's not a bad place to stay at, at all!

    This hotel is a dump


    This hotel is a real dump so I am somewhat surprised by the reviews. We stayed in a triple and the bed sheets and linen were old and not very clean. The room smelled musty but the bathroom was the worst. The bathroom floor was slanted at an angle which meant that when you sit on the toilet you have every chance of falling off. The shower was primitive and you have to be extremely slim to move your way around.

    Bayswater Inn-Honeymoon No-N0!!!


    My wife and I spent 4 days of our honeymoon here based on the misguided opinion of our travel agent. Boy did she royally screw up! We asked for a double bed, but what we got was not quite a double bed. Something in-between a twin and a double bed was what it was, alongside another twin bed. Also, the bed sagged in the middle...when was the last time this bed was replaced?! Truth is, most rooms seem to accommodate a clientele of groups, with young people and older couples from Europe predominate. Their standards are perhaps lower. The shower/bath mechanisms are confusing, because they were indepently of each other, and if you make a mistake you may be stuck with scalding hot or freezing cold water. Also, the drain plugs are inadequate, and the drains are slow at best. Of course, we especially enjoyed the bath floor mat made of paper(with 2 feet printed on it!). The rug in our room was filthy. The comforter blanket covering bed was old and ratty.

    Nice place,exellent service


    I've stayed at the Bayswater Inn three times....and loved every stay!

    It's clean,the people working there are fantastic and it is a cozy place to be!!!

    We're going back this November,and are REALLY looking forward to it!

    Bayswater Inn..... HERE WE ARE!!!

    Shop around if you have time to.


    Upon arrival at the Bayswater, we were TOLD that they were putting us in a different hotel for the first night of our 6 night stay there, without explanation, until the manager overheard us demand one. She explained that their new furniture was not delivered yet, so our room wouldn't be ready for another day. I liked the hotel they moved us to for a night better (Leinster Inn around corner). Free breakfast is a roll, jam, juice, coffee, and tea. I've stayed in many hostels and never slept in a bed as uncomfortable as the Bayswater Inn's. Ask them to line your mattress with an extra comforter. The place was clean and close to a tube/subway station and Hyde park. This hotel is on the cusp of Notting Hill (nice), but NOT in the West End as some ads have claimed. Rooms are small and walls are thin. Ignore many old reviews since they've remodeled. Bayswater's staff gave us bad information about London, such as what train station to go to, and where the second hotel they were moving us to is on a map.



    The rooms were clean, but the room was very hot and could not control the heat, we had a basement room. They told us they do not give out washcloths, we received 2 clean towels a day. Also the day we were leaving, 2 big black bugs were in the room, I think they were coachroaches.

    Great Place at the price


    Clean well maintained small hotel. Quiet location. Close to tubes and Kensington park.

    Low-frills, but OK for budget travelers


    If you just want a clean, well-located place to sleep and don't plan to do much in your room but snooze and shower, the Bayswater Inn will work fine for you.

    A bargain place to stay


    Me and my girlfriend stayed there last Nov 2001. This hotel is situated in a nice quiete neihgborhood in Bayswater area;you have choice of two tube stations at 5 minutes walking,and also the large dining offer of Queensway around the corner.The personnel is well mannered and the structure is an english style building well manteined inside and outside.Yes,room was tiny,but clean and if you use it only to sleep and take a shower is ok.Buffet breakfast was good.And best af all,it was a real bargain at 50GBP per night by internet reservation.
