Departed Changi on time; was so tired I fell asleep while the aircraft was taxiing out and missed my favourite part of air travel - take off. I was a bit disappointed; I'd been looking forward to the boom of the big engines and the rush of speed - I love that bit where the jet plane launches itself into the sky; incredible to think a thing that big …
Our final full day!! Saturday was definitely one of my absolute favorite days. We all met up bright and early to go to Paddington Station where we would be catching the Hogwarts Express. It was so much fun because most everyone was dressed in Hogwarts attire. David went as the alternate universe Harry if Harry had gone Slytherin (it was between …
On Friday we went on a mini-tour before our boat ride and saw where the telephone booth entrance to the Ministry of Magic was (Harry and Mr. Weasley went there at the beginning of OOTP for Harry's trial). Afterwards we went for a cruise on the Thames River and saw a better view of the Millennium Bridge and the Parliament building as well as the …
On Thursday we took a panoramic tour of London with Heather as our guide. We got to see all of the traditional London sites like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and the Globe Theater; it's always fun to tour with heather because you get all of the facts in a condensed and entertaining manner. We also got to see a variety of HP …

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Burns Hotel London
Really liked the Best Western Burns Hotel
My husband and I stayed here for one night (June 5, 2004) and were very pleased. The staff were all very helpful, polite, and courteous. The hotel is situated across from Barkston Gardens in Kensington. Our stay came with a full breakfast and was plentiful and very good. The room itself, while small, came with a shower/tub combination with plenty of hot water. The bed was a little lumpy but very clean. We had a view out towards some residential backyards that were very pretty. The tube stop is within easy walking distance. There is a bar in which to have drinks and for a nominal fee you can have access to the internet. I will definitely come back to this hotel!
Last week we stayed at the Burnes Hotel on our first trip to London. I give this hotel high ratings even the room was very small. The staff was great and the room was clean. No hot water problems and even with the creeking floors, I thought it charming. I would return to this hotel if I get back to London.
I stayed here 2 times in 2001 Oct and Dec. Since it was right after the terrorist attacks London was desperate for tourism and I got a room on one of the discount booking sights------------------for 75.00 pounds--remember the exchange rate was much better then. oct we had basebemnt room--nice room but right next to kitchen--In DEC I asked for a better room and we got one it was nice--the brkfast here is much better than a lot of other London hotels--still just rolls, yogurt cheese coffee fruit etc but a good variety. Staff was very nice and they had a nice Christmas tree there in DEC. I would stay here but only if I can get a good rate-there are to many other nice hotels in the same area for much lower prices. I can go and get a scone and coffee for 2.00 pounds at 2-3 dif places on Earls Ct RD.
Having booked in for one night on a theatre break we were very impressed with its location, being neato Earls Court tube and along a quiet road. It was great inside and the staff were excellant when checking in.
Because my wife, daughter and I booked our room only about two weeks before departure, we were relieved to find a reasonably priced hotel (for London) that had a few good reviews on this site. The Burns is located on a quiet street facing a garden. It's 1 1/2 blocks from the Earl's Court tube stop, and it's quite easy to get from there to anywhere, including Heathrow. Staff is eager to help guests, and their information is accurate. Room was small but not too small. Nice view of the neighbors' lovely backyards. Very quiet at night, if a little too warm. It was clean. Mattresses were a bit lumpy, and some of the furniture a little ratty and overdue for replacement. Plenty of hot water, great shower. Ample English breakfast in the restaurant, and lots of choices for Continental breakfast. Our only problems: we booked a double and a single bed, and got 3 singles. Also, the front of the drawer on my daughter's nightstand came off (and landed on her foot).
After having horrible experiences at the Stanley House Hotel in London, I rushed over to an internet cafe and searched through literally thousands of hotels in London to find one that is reasonably priced, centrally-located, and that is higher than a one star hotel. I finally decided to go with this hotel, which is located only a block away from the Earl's Court station and was around 80 dollars a night. I can not express how much I love this hotel. The staff, though young, are really professional, patient and kind. Check-in probably took less than five minutes. My single occupancy room was very clean and tidy and just large enough for me. The immaculate bathroom came with a tub and "easy-to-use" shower/bath knobs. There is always hot water, so don't worry. The room was well-decorated overall and came with a tv, trouser press, and a phone (with free voicemail). However, the only thing I didn't "like" about this hotel was that you had to call the concierge/front desk to have them connect with any 0800 number. I use phonecards very often to call back home in the States and it became a nuisance to call the front desk every time I wanted to call. I understand their policy with 0800 numbers because they would lose money if everyone used phonecards. Anyway, my bed was firm and the pillows were fine. I had a lovely view overlooking Barkston Gardens. The floors a tad squeaky but who cares? Room service wasn't special, but they did the job done well. Breakfast is excellent. The full English breakfast came with my room but even if you are stuck with continental breakfast, you will not be disappointed. They have all sorts of breakfast foods: cereal, croissants, some sort of eggs, fresh fruit. I would be quite pleased eating just the continental breakfast. I was talking to a waitress a few nights ago and she told me that of all the months she has been there, no one has ever complained about the hotel. I honestly believe that I made a great choice with this hotel. Earl's Court is a great central tube station, there are many restaurants to choose from once you're out on the main road, and there's a Boots convience store right across the street. Great rates, lovely room, professional and nice staff, wonderful breakfast, and perfect location makes this hotel one of the best that I have ever stayed in. I will definitely come back to the Burns Hotel!
Went out of his way to get us information when we wanted something.
Loved the staff and how friendly this hotel is. The manger went out of his way to get us information when we wanted something not in the usual tourist trend.
