... I might know somebody." Within 5 minutes she had found a private taxi that would drive us to Blarney for a similar price as the tour! Georges quick thinking had saved the day. George's response was, "I guess God had another way for us to visit the Blarney stone, we just had to search for it."

One hour later we were met by our driver, Freddie. He was a nice Irish gentleman who was passionate about his country. He first drove us ...

Hello London

Felt remarkably fresh as we stepped off the plane on a brilliant sunny day in London. We both felt like the flights had been pretty good and it didn't seem like 21 hours in the air. The night had started with a little bit of Portuguese chicken at the airport with the family and then only a few tears as we said our goodbyes (females only). I was as excited as the kid out of the castle about the movies on board. I think I watched about 5 new release movies whilst stace ...

... fan so it was funny to see him acting like a kid when I do that for my shows haha! We went to M & M world and had lunch so it was a nice day.

So, that’s about it really. I have been too busy working to do much else, so I am enjoying my down time while I can as working 9-5.30pm is not something I am so used to. So it took a bit to adjust to that. But the good news is I am enjoying it all and this job has kept me in London. If I wasn’t doing this, ...

Second day in London

A travel blog entry by mardi2013

... The changing of the guard was cool but involved a lot of standing around for glimpses of stuff. I was too far back to really see what was happening in front of the palace but I got to see them marching. The only way I could see what was happening in the courtyard in front of the palace was by watching people's iPads or big phones which was convenient and pretty funny. Then I went went for a longer-than-expected wonder to the national museum and stumbled upon Harrods on my way. The ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Cavendish London

    Excellent location! Great deal when you can get it!

    from

    My sister and I recently spent the week in London and happened upon the DeVere Cavendish St. James by chance. We were very lucky: found a great rate off their website. The hotel's location is excellent! It is located across the street from Fortnum & Mason's, a block from Piccadilly St. It's only a few blocks from either the Green Park or Piccadilly Circus Tube stations. From the hotel, you can walk within 20 minutes to SoHo, Chinatown, Leicester Sq, Covent Garden, the National Gallery, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, etc. We had a twin room, which we felt was small compared to those in the US, but comfortable. It was as nice as staying at a Hyatt. But I guess all hotel rooms in Europe are small? The major disappointment was the service at breakfast. A continental breakfast was included with our accomodations, and it was quite good. We would recommend spending the few extra GBP and getting the full English Breakfast on the weekends.

    A fine hotel

    from

    A clean, modern hotel with an excellent location. Rooms are pretty small, but enough for one person. One of the best hotels in London that I've stayed in, I'll most certainly return there. Recommended.

    Loved the De Vere Cavendish, St. James

    from

    We spent 6 nights at the DeVere in March, 2004. The DeVere is located in a wonderful area of London. It is right across the street from Fortnum and Mason and there are many other shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. It was very clean, convenient to both the Green Park and Picadilly tube stops. It is also located so you can walk to many of the major sights. The service was excellent. Our room was quiet and everything was quite comfortable. It was our first time in London and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was included in our room rate and was quite adequate. Variety of cereal, pastries, fruit, etc. We will stay there again if we return to London.

    Good Choice, Great Location

    from

    I enjoyed a 5 night stay at the De Vere Cavendish Hotel in February, 2004. I booked a "single" room at a promotional rate through British Airways and I feel that I got very good value. The "single" room was a bit small, but there was sufficient room for one person. It would have been cramped for two. The room had a full-sized bed which was one of the most comfortable in which I've ever slept. The bathroom featured an over-sized shower (no tub) with an abundant flow of water. (Showers in some London hotels are tiny and provide a meager trickle.) My only complaint was that the boiler broke and there was no hot water one morning, but such things do happen. The breakfast buffet (included in my rate) offered a limited selection of cereals, breads, pastries, fruits, cheeses and cold meats. The pastries were particularly good.

    Loved the location

    from

    When we arrived the hotel record showed that we wouldn't be arriving for 2 days. They gave us a room right next to the elevator and when we heard the noise from the elevator we requested a different room. They moved us into a smoking room (YUK) since we were told it was the only room available for our 8 day stay and after complaining they lowered our rate. The rooms overall were quite nice & clean, the only negative was the quality of the mattress, had to sleep on the edges. Great location, we would stay here again.

    Nice & modern... beware of dinner reservations...

    from

    The De Vere Cavendish was a great place to stay. It's centrally located in Picadilly, steps away from the Thomas Pink store. The rooms were a bit small, however the decor was very modern and minimalist. Staff was nice and friendly and the bar on the 2nd floor is open 24/7 for hotels guests. The only complaint we had was that the recommendations for dinner reservations were at such expensive restaurants. We figured out later that the concierge staff got a kickback from the restaurants. We would suggest just asking for dinner suggestions and then just showing up for dinner because you don't need the reservations.

    Loved the Devere Cavendish Hotel-St James Place

    from

    I visited London in September 2003 and this hotel is just the finest I have found in London - I emailed the hotel directly for the best price, and found that the hotel offered me the BEST price possible (even shopped online at the travel sites, and the hotel gave me the best offer! Great hotel - super service and a fabulous hotel to meet and greet friends - located in St James - middle of Piccadilly and just a fine hotel all around. Location is super - there is a Marks and Spencers close by - walking distance to just everywhere - so do check this hotel out - room service after 10pm is a bit limited. Just lovely and I paid 189 sterling pounds INCLUDING VAT and an English breakfast each morning!

    Great location for first time visitors

    from

    This hotel is perfectly situated for the traveler who wants to be a "tourist" and go "sightseeing" in London. We spent a week at the Cavendish St. James in mid-October, 2003 and could not have been happier with the hotel. The rooms were a bit small, but were extremely comfortable (especially the down comforters) , quiet and well-maintained. By day, we could walk or take a short cab/underground ride to Buckingham Palace, National Gallery, Parliament Building/Big Ben , Green Park, and by night, the theatre district and great restaurants were only a short distance away. The underground stations were only a short walk in either direction from the hotel. We traveled with our a 2 1/2 year old child, so being centrally located was important to us. Surprisingly, we also found a few inexpensive restaurants nearby, which is nice when traveling as a family. If we traveled to London again and only had a short amount of time there, we'd definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Excellent Location, Great Hotel

    from

    I Recently went on a weekend break with my sister to London and we stayed at the Da Vere Cavendish, St James. I would recommend it to anyone. When we arrived, we were told we had been upgraded to an executive suite which was excellent, we loved everything about our room and we said if we ever went again we would definitely stay there. As for the location, it was excellent, we were right by everything you could ever want in London and we didn't need to get a Taxi Cab anywhere. Overall this is an excellent place to stay and I thoroughly recommend it!

    Great location, Ok service

    from

    We have just returned from a 4-night stay in London and stay at the Devere Cavendish St. James. The location is hard to beat; we walked to almost every part of central in London within 15-20 minutes and it is a 3-minute walk from the Piccadilly tube stop, which gives you a quick, inexpensive ride to Heathrow when you need to go home. The room we obtained through hoteldiscounts was comfortable but quite small, with very sleek, modern furnishings. The bathroom was of good size, with a full-size tub and shower and heated towel bar. There was a nice closet, but no dresser to unpack your suitcase into, so you much live out of your suitcase. We also had some confusion as to whether the breakfast was included and, despite our protestations that we were told it was included, were charged nearly 30 pounds for a poorly supplied breakfast buffet. Overall, I would say if location near Piccadilly/West End is important, this could be a good option, but service and amenities could be improved for a "4-star" hotel.
