What an incredibly memorable day!!! Having left the hotel about 0430 we got into Piccadilly by bus and found our way down to The Mall. I had been confused by the route and Chris had the paper with the route – he had an idea of where to wait, but we wandered along, back and forth and found a place where there were other Canadians, from …
I got to sleep in today - and when I got up took a leisurely shower - the some tea and toast enjoyed as the sun started to peek through - I had a chat with Barb and also Eunice - they all loved the flowers - so that is good. Phil called to wish us well on our journey. I called another friend of our family (long time) but did not get an answer …

We also had high tea this afternoon at the Corinthian Hotel that is right around the corner from our apartment. Sitting under a gigantic crystal chandelier & surrounded by vases of peonies - we each had a pot of tea, selection of sandwiches (including the traditional cucumber sandwich, warm scones with thick, sweet clotted cream & strawberry jam, and tiny cakes & pastries).
... as we were going to be heading out to Kew in the afternoon to meet up with my friends and be out near the wedding for Saturday.
We spent the day in the Natural History Museum, which was absolutely rammed with kids. It would have been ok if they were looking at the exhibits, but they really just seemed to be wandering around and blocking all the signs for the people who were there to look at them.
The dinosaur exhibit was obviously the most packed, but it was worth ...
A brief follow-on to the prior post - we were going to take a few photos of the rooms, but didn't think you'd appreciate seeing mouldy grout, spotty mirrors, towels with threads hanging off, crumbs on the floor. It was however topped by what seemed to be various Arabic versions of Days of our Lives on the TV...the language really adding to the drama, but for all we know the characters were talking about whether jeans should have zips or button-flys. After the best ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western The Delmere Hotel London
I researched a "cheap" (when the dollar/pound ratio turned against us) hotel near Paddington for 10 of a church group for our June, "04 trip. The Delmere was a jewel. Happily, the Best Western Delmere was as my research had showed. Tiny
Small room, but well-positioned hotel
Recently stayed at the Delmere when I needed a hotel close to Paddington train station. My single room was very small, rather dark, and round the back of the main building, but it was actually quiet and functional. Staff perfectly helpful, and it was no problem for them to look after my baggage on checkout day. Would have preferred checkout at 12.00 rather than 11.00, but this is a small quibble. Close to Lancaster Gate and Paddington tube stations.
It was our first trip to England and after reading many hotel reviews took a chance that this Hotel would meet our standards. We were delighted!
We wanted to be close to the Paddington station and hence our selection of the Delmere. It was a nice hotel, and our room was the cleanest I've seen of hotels of similar category. The room was small but everything was spotless (the bathroom was sparkling like a hospital facility ^.^).
We just returned from an 11 day trip to London. We chose The Delmere
Excellent service with a smile!!!!
Recently stayed here (Apr '04) and was extremely impressed by the great service with a smile. The staff was incredibly friendly & helpful. Rooms were small, so were bathrooms, but they were clean & the size was expected for a London hotel, so it wasn't a big deal. Ate dinner at the in-hotel restaurant one night and was greatly impressed. Nice meal & super-friendly service. Had a nice continental-style breakfast each morning. Nice choices & friendly service. They even remembered our drink order every day! I would recommend this hotel highly for being TOPS in it's price range!!
Our first night in London was at the Castleton, half a block from the Delmere. The Castleton was dreadful. The Delmere was wonderful.
Excellent service, clean modern rooms. Elevator worked. I strongly recommend this hotel. Friendly and helpful staff.
Friendly, good service, easily accesible to things
Small but very friendly, has lift, great breakfast, as far as european breakfasts go, rooms small but work ( your only there to sleep) . Service is very friendly and has a nice little Italian restraunt to boot. Close to Hyde Park, Paddington station, variety of eating places, close to Big Bus. It was my first trip to England and I would go back. Sharon Starr
Good value - convenient location!
Small rooms by US standards, but, clean, efficient w. very helpful and courteous staff. Conveniently located, just two blocks from Paddington Station. The elevator is an extra plus, if you travel w. lots of luggage.
This was the most charming hotel for its price range I've ever seen in London. We were there for 4 days in May 2002 and will return again next time.The hotel is well-located within a 5 minute walk of Paddington Station, with its connections to the Heathrow Express and the Tube. We were less than 30 minutes from Heathrow to our hotel room. From the hotel, Hyde Park is less than 10 minutes away, and Oxford Circus only 15 minutes. In fact, we easily walked from the hotel to Leicester Square and back one night, for a great slice of life in the City.The staff is outstanding. They come from all over Europe, and really seem to take a pride in the place.The room was smallish for two people, but that's to be expected in London, and just a bit too dark. It was located off a quiet terrazzo, with its own window and plants. Very European.The breakfast, included in the price of the room, was excellent. That and the morning Times got our days off to great starts.We can't wait to go back to the Delmere in London.
