Time to say our goodbyes and head back to Madrid for our flight to London. Hope the guys & Gal (Tiff) do well in the last day of sailing and have a great presentation night. Then Brent has to drive back to Madrid and fly home. Our trip entailed another long …
... a great center of scientific research. Many famous
scientists have worked there, most notably Sir Isaac Newton. After taking our
picture on the golden line that represents the Prime Meridian, literally the
center of the world, we moved into the museum where we learned about how
scientists solved one of the most pressing problems of the 18th
century, paving the way for the massive success of the British Navy.
In the early 18th century ...
... the fun of getting lost was the helpful people we met along the way; everyone was so friendly and wanted to help. We met an Australian girl from Adelaide who studied old time dance and was dancing her way around the world with her next stop being Iceland – this was a very motivated young lady indeed who was so committed to her craft that she would not be seeing the shores of Oz for some years to come.
At Paddington station we checked out ...
... free first class, and I could fly to FLL first class for the same amount of miles but no fee. Obviously I pounced on it. Remember that I am an obsessive bargain shopper, so I had been doing these searches for a couple of weeks. That option just showed up that day, and I’m guessing it didn’t last long.
As a result, I came early to the airport to do some duty-free shopping and to enjoy the lounge. Plus I just like arriving early. You ...
... the highlight of the Tower visit. The White Tower was fascinating with lots of royal armour and weapons of not so mass destruction. The ravens were of particular interest to me in the courtyard next to the White Tower. They are fed on raw meat and blood-soaked biscuits and are not caged. I endured four hours of intriguing torture before heading into the Heart of London for late lunch to warm me up. After a bit of a walk along my bus route I found my destination, an ...

A Great Value, Smart Hotel
We have just returned from an enjoyable weekend staying at Club Quarters. The location, though quiet at the weekend as it is in the heart of the City, is ideally placed for transport links and there are a couple of tube stations within a short walking distance. The hotel itself is very comfortable and the rooms are above average in size for London. We had everything we could want in our room: plenty of hanging space, toiletries, a coffee maker and best of all, an incredibly comfortable bed. We got an excellent rate staying here at the weekend and we plan on returning next time we visit London.
Booked hotel without any idea of location and although slightly worried as it was not in a central area, it worked out fairly well - only 10 minute walk from Liverpool station which got us onto the Central Line and close enough to the Thames and some tourist areas of interest. The staff were courteous if not friendly, the room was adequate if slightly lacking in natural light and I must admit I was disappointed in a a 4* hotel not having a bath in the bathroom, just a shower.
Great value clean and comfortable
Great value, speedy check in (and out!). Room was spotless.The location is not central BUT it's less than half the price of worse hotels in central London.
I stayed at the hotel for a weekend in december. The builing is an old bank and the lobby is gorgeous, there are newspapers and a coffee machine in case you have to wait around, although the check in is so quick via an automatic machine that you wont have to.
Excellent weekend value
I booked this through lastminute uk for a low rate of £56 to stay in early Feb and it's probably the best value I've had in central London. The room was fine and very clean with a nice coffee maker. It is a very anonymous, low fuss kind of place, but comfortable.
This part of the city is quiet on weekends but there's buses to Oxford street virtually at the door and you're only short walk from Liverpool street station (and the Sunday morning Petticoat Lane market!). I found you can do some great shopping with the money saved by staying here.
Good value for money
I stayed at Club Quarters on a Saturday night through a deal with Last.minute.com for £55.00 room only. I found that this was good value for money for the facilties of the hotel. The hotel was clean and comfortable although the rooms a little small. The check in precedure is very inhospitable (you just put your credit card in a machine and it gives you your room key and check out procedures). Room service was quick and efficient. If you want to visit the sites of London it is definately not the place to stay. Nothing is open passed 4pm in the city on the weekend. Taxi's to the centre of London are approx £13 so it can work out expensive. All in all the hotel is in a quiet location out of the bussle of London.
Shame about check in
Stayed in the Club Quarters, Gracechurch at the end of January. It was a lovely building, the rooms were very clean and more than adequate. My only complaint would be the downright rudeness of the lady who greeted us at check in. As this was our first impression of the hotel, it really did leave us feeling unsettled and spoiled what would have otherwise been a lovely stay.
I stayed one Saturday night at the Club Quarters Gracechurch in the City of London, for about GBP 57 incl. VAT. My single room was quite small, but had extremely modern furnishings (quite comfortable) and a very modern bathroom. There was also a coffeemaker with drip coffee and tea, as well as free high-speed Internet usage. My view was of a small space between two buildings, slightly larger than an air shaft...however, I could still hear some street noise! (But it wasn't too loud.)
I stayed here for 6 days over the New Year (2005). The average sized room was on the top floor and was quite amazing for London. We had a nice view of the Lloyd's and Swiss Re (gherkin) buildings. The bed had a large comforter and a single sheet with soft plush pillows (no heavy blankets!). The bathroom was a decent size with a full sized shower (no bath). A notice indicated that free wireless internet was available in the rooms but I didn't actually use it. There's a small gym in the basement with a treadmill, an exercise bike or two and free weights.
I stayed for one night in the heart of Center City right near all of the best restaurants and shopping in the city. The room was small but for the unbelieveable price of $64.00 it was well worth it. The room had modern amenities was very clean and quiet.
The check-in was a breeze and the check-out took a matter of seconds ( 20 to be exact) with the automated teller machines in the lobby.
There was an acceptable gym and an unusaul selection of room service meals delivered from local restaurants. All in all "A GREAT DEAL!"
