I can barely remember anything. Milan was so tired he fell down a case of stairs, I through thermals at mum the list goes on and on. All together we went to bed at 5:00pm. SUNDAY MORNING: We ended up waking up at 2:00am because we weren't used to the time zone. We couldn't go to sleep and we "accidentally" woke up Richard and mum. By the time mum got us to sleep it was 4:30am ...
... We bought a little box of chocolates then it was back on the bus. Our next stop was the ferry. To get to the ferry we had to drive back into France but it didn't take too long. After a smooth 2 hour ferry crossing we were back on English soil and back on the bus heading for London. It was much warmer in London than Amsterdam so hopefully that will continue! Another awesome trip! Met heaps of cool people and visited amazing cities. Not looking forward to work tomorrow ...

... the code that changed on a daily basis.
There were also many other exhibits I visited including the modern technology exhibit, which housed many cars, planes, and other technologies. I saw a medical history exhibit, a veterinary history exhibit, a time exhibit, an agricultural exhibit, and several other small more obscure exhibits. We spent two and a half hours in all touring the exhibits. I felt that I saw most of what I wanted to see, and was ...
But, alas, there was to be very little sleeping for Abby (or Mommy and Daddy, for that matter). We had the option of two different sleeping setups for a lap infant. The first was a traditional flat bassinet/cot which Abby didn't come close to fitting in (pictured). The second was a Britax carseat deal which is what we choose (also pictured). Abby slept in it for maybe an hour or two and woke up screaming. I took her out and laid her next to me on the bed and ...

Delightful New Rooms.A hidden gem in WC1
Booked the Hotel Cavendish via internet for its proximity to central London within walking distance to Leicester Square.Was looking for a room to sleep overnight for a meeting.Expecting a standard B & B I was surprised when I entered the room.For £55 a night it was an absolute gem and had free internet access in every room.The manager said the rooms were redecorated and totally new.For an extra £10 i upgraded to an executive room.Room was equivalent to a 4 star hotel standard where I have stayed many times before.I suspect that once it becomes popular the price may increase.However in the meantime it is ideal for a business visitor who is looking for a very high standard of room with modem facilities but without swimming pool and gym.
Overall rating for the price/class of hotel: 4/5
Nice New Rooms
After reading the reviews about work being carried out I was hesitant but decided to stay at the hotel after visiting the web site.
What a surprise! The contrast between the old rooms and newly decorated modern rooms is amazing. For the price and location the new rooms are a bargain. The rooms are as they appear on the web site unlike other hotels which carry old pictures.
I look forward to vising the place again in the summer by when it will be ready.
I'd have to say that for the price I was paying, I was very pleased. The newly decorated rooms are great, equipped with everything I needed. The hotel is very clean, and the room was well heated, hot water all the time, TV with all the channels I wanted to watch (more than your basic package), and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I really have no complaints. I should note that they are currently undergoing renovations, but they go on during the day when most of the residents are out and about, so unless you're sleeping in late, this place is great for the price.
My husband and I were not informed at the time of booking with the Cavendish that they would be under extensive reconstruction(not redecorating). I am allergic to construction materials like fresh paint, sawdust,etc. We were initially given a room in an unsecured,adjacent building with no door staff and without a real lock on the door..imagine the door on a storage shed. We were moved to another room after we expressed concern about being placed in a construction site and having no working television, lock on door, etc. The new room was upstairs in the main hotel..also under construction. The workers were nice enough to move the ladders and paint and tools out of the way every time we needed to leave or return to the room. They were nice enough to refrain from sawing, drilling, etc. until after nine in the morning. The room was not the neatest.Apparently construction sites are a bit dusty. No dustbin to be found at all. No soap. The TV was still out of order.(Sounds petty but we live for our britcoms) The tea service was abysmal. Filthy cups and no teabags or sugar. The shower was best described by my husband as akin to being spat upon as the water pressure was missing(and we are familiar with european hotels and lower pressure, but this was just sad).The lowlight of this experience was the chambermaid asking my husband if he wouldn't mind leaving the door open while we were out, as the workers may need to get into our room!! (No, we were not on Candid Camera.)
Nice family hotel gone downhill
I'd stayed at this hotel when it was run by a very friendly and theatrical family, so looked forward to my stay this year. However, the previous owners have retired and the management has deteriorated dramatically. On arrival, I was sent to another hotel 3 doors down & given one of the tiniest rooms I've ever stayed in! The management was just adequate, but brusque, and the breakfast hours somewhat trying - breakfast stopped at 8.30-am even on Sunday.
What had been a charming (if eccentric) oasis on Gower Street has become just another cheap hotel, and I didn't feel particularly safe either. I'll book early for the Arosfa in future.
This hotel is being redocated and I was lucky to stay at the new room.
The new rooms are a real gem with new en -suite and new decor with flat screen TV.
For the price this hotel is an oasis in the heart of London and it is real good value for money although
the redecoration is still going on.I look forward to going there again when the whole hotel is done.
I stayed for a night at this hotel, not great, but with good breakfast and cheap. First problem: we were given a wrong room. When we got into the room we saw that it was already occupied. This shows an important lack of security. The biggest problem came a month later with my credit card balance. They've charged me twice. When I phoned them, they told me that they were giving me a refund the following day. After a week, they said they were not going to give me the money back because 'according to their records' I had stayed more nights. After I convinced that that was false, they again promised to make the refund. So far, it's almost two months since that happened I haven't seen my money back. The hotel's adminitration is a mess: they confuse who is staying in which room, lose the receipts, they've got no communication accross memebers of the staff (one says something different to the othr guy). NOt a nice experience whatsoever!!!!
I was a single traveller at the time and found the Cavendish a pleasant place to stay. The single room was tiny and the bath and shower were on different floors but just as others say I was in London for the sights not the room. The bed was comfortable, the owners friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great. Cavendish Hotel is also so close to the sights I easily walked to the tube or a sight nearby.
