... slowly find everything we need for bed time that has been packed in the loft. We punt at a 9pm bedtime and hope for a little rest before the first jetlagged kidlet requires us.
One of the most striking things about returning home is just how much Dylan has grown, and grown up. His cot which he slept in before we left reminds us how little he was when we set off. Sides off to create the bed and it looks absolutely ...
... some group pictures and delegation pictures here, which is all a challenge in itself with so many other people around and sometimes short time limits. We continued our walk through Horse Guards Parade, which might look familiar as it is where the beach volleyball courts were set up for games during the Olympics. We crossed the street to walk through one of the many parks here in London to get to the street for the changing of the guards. We watched the old guards march down ...
... the Chocolate Factory is the latest London musical and is currently in previews. I loved the show. It had lots of the magical whimsy I love about the old film from my childhood. Sam Mendes is directing the production and he has incorporated film and other multimedia tools to tell the story. There is also lots of magic - at one point Charlie throws a paper plane right across the theatre and up to the ceiling. The kids in the ...
I'm here at Heathrow, just checked in and waiting for trip to finally begin.
(Listening to this song if people want to listen and read - Now We Are Free - fits well for how i am feeling)
Don't know how to explain how i feeling at the mo, there is a lot things i need to say, a lot of people i need to sorry to that i am ...
Took the slow train from Purley to London Victoria Station to meet Jo for lunch (we can now cross tapas off our "unachievable" long to-do list). So glad I got to see London's pretty Christmas decorations. Wandered around the fancy shops near Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street, saw a great photo contest at the Portrait Gallery and shared a few pints at the pubs near Covent Garden. I really don't like it when I'm prohibited from photographs at a museum. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Croydon
I am a Gold Hilton Honours member. I booked 2 rooms and requested interconnecting. On arrival a very nice receptionist gave me keys to 2 rooms on the 3rd floor but not interconnecting or adjoining. I pointed out my request and she quickly found me interconnecting rooms. I was assured that payment for the rooms had NOT been charged to my credit card even though this was a pre-pay rate which seemed strange.( There was no room upgrade as this property does not have executive rooms or lounge access)
Could Be Better
I took my wife here for Valentines and all the arrangements were very well arranged and i thought we were in for the biggest treat of our lives - i mean this is the Hilton right!!!
Actually this Hilton aint all that. The corridors were really worn and bit dirty showing signs of ageing. The room wasnt bad but once again i expected better. Food wasnt bad again thus all in all Hilton Croydon was a bit of a dissapointment for me....
Stayed here on business for around three weeks so got to experience most of the good & bad points of the hotel.
Good value if not perfect
For London, ok Croydon,the price was good. Large and comfortable bedroom if a little 'worn'. Woken up by noise from people below awaiting transport after a function and clearly considerably the worse for drink. Staff were a little icy but all in all well worth the money. Location is ok. Waddon station for trains to London about a 10 minute walk, also local buses to centre of Croydon. Ignore the Americans who think you have to go to central London first before taking the train to Gatwick. There's a good rail service from East Croydon directly to the airport.
Where is Croydon?
We are just about to end our stay here. The beds a really big and the linens are nice. The staff are friendly. BUT this Hotel is not convienient to Heathrow or Gatwick airports. Be prepared for an hour and a half bus ride from Heathrow or a £80 taxi ride! If going to Gatwick you must take a bus(or £8 courtesy shuttle?) to the train station, now take a train to Victoria Station then get the Gatwick express to the airport!! A taxi to Gatwick would be £30. We knew we chose a poor location when the people at the information desk at the airport had no idea how to get there and had to get out three maps and asks friends how to get there. But if you are driving this is a good 3 star hotel.
Must of got a room upgrade as the bed was huge, there where no problems even with several Christmas functions on. All said a done no complaints unless you mention five pounds a glass of wine (for a small glass!), get the bottle or bring your own!
Not great!!! - stay in the Jury's Inn for value for money
I stayed here whilst on a business trip. Considering this is a Hilton hotel, the rooms are very basic, the bathroom is shabby and dated and the so called mini bar was empty!!!
I would advise you to stay in the Jury's In for value for money and a closer location to the train station.
Although the hotel was clean and had a nice lounge area in the lobby, there were some problems I experienced while in this hotel.
This hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. It was a great location from which to explore London. The room rate we received included a buffet breakfast and buffet dinner!
Loved the full weekend
efficent from the word go,didn't matter if you were there with a group of 100 or were on your own. Nothing was to much trouble. I left a customer feed back form and was contacted by the manager with in 2 day's of getting home. I have stayed at this hilton 4 time's now and wouldn't use any other
They have recently had an upgrade on there resturant area and it has to be said it's great.
The only down side has to be there's not enough staff on duty especially when they are covering the bar and cafe also
Well worth the money and of course london is just down the road in one direction and gatwick the other
