The end of my big trip

A travel blog entry by elliottjulia


8.5 month! That's so long.... I had no idea how people travel for that long yet I did it. It's the end of the era which is sad, but it's a beginning of a new one, which is really exciting and I'm confident full of fun and opportunities. I was felt emotional leaving home in Bangsar - it really felt that I do have 2 homes - one in our flat in Bangsar and another is London. And it's not KL as a ...

Many London Sights in a Day

... and he and his family actually live in the Tower. In years past, this was the place where hangings were executed. It is hard to think about the terrible torture chambers and hangings of, not only the common man, but many royals also. Jan & I went on a quest for a restroom and found ourselves outside the tower. Thanks to a nice gate keeper, she let us back in. Someone needs a pick-me-up of soft ice cream, so we all joined him, as we left ...

Our last Day

... to Paddington Station to get our luggage and caught the Heathrow Express to the airport. We caught the A380 and had exit seats with the extra leg room which was fantastic.
Left London at 2130 London time and arrive back in Sydney at 0500 on Sunday. Our flight to Coffs was at 0840 and we were back in Coffs at 0945. It was great to be back home.
Overall we had a brilliant time with lots of great memories. Till next ...

First days in London!

... surrounding a man that was speaking. There were film crews, journalists, and cameras crowding the desk so I obviously walked up to see what was going on. I found out that my scheduled flight was the first direct flight that Delta Airlines has ever done from Seattle to London. That being said, all of the passengers were given champagne and little appetizers to celebrate. I guess you could say that I really got started before even getting ...

The year of the mosquito

A travel blog entry by sindlen

... at Hendon and there was a Mosquito! Hendon is about a half hour trip from Waterloo station. We walked to the museum from Colindale station. First stop a warm cup of tea (at the Echo, Alpha, Tango cafe - think about it ....). While there we looked through the Battle of Britain Hall, which included a huge statute of Sir Keith Park (by Weta), as well as a number of other aircraft that had starring roles in the Battle of Britain. We then headed to the milestones of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Devonport House London

    Great Weekend Value


    We stayed at Devonport House for 3 nights in mid-February 2005. Weekend rates were excellent value and though the hotel itself was not exactly exciting, our room was bright, clean, and spacious with an unusually comfortable bed - all very nice after tramping round exhibitions all day. Set just a bit off the main drag, it has the advantage of being unusually quiet for London while being really well located for the local sights, a range of eating opportunities and transport into Docklands or central London.



    We have just returned from a weekend break staying at Devonport House. The location in Greenwich is perfect with easy access on public transport into London for sightseeing. The hotel was very comfortable and the food was excellent. We could not find any faults at all with the standard of accomodation and friendliness of the staff. We will definitely be returning to this hotel for our next visit to London.



    Really enjoyed my relaxing stay here once I found the place ( or rather once I found the entrance, which is not that easy under cover of darkness!).

    Everthing was top class- breakfast, rooms, staff.

    Great weekend value and I hope to return.

    Location, location, location!


    Although primarily used as a conference centre, my boyfriend and I spent the weekend at Devonport House to fully explore Greenwich and found it to be a clean, friendly and very pleasant hotel. The rooms are comfortable, well-equiped and decorated to a high standard, much nicer than the usual 'chain hotel' garish carpet and curtain prints! Location-wise, Devonport House cannot be beaten... very close to everything you would want to visit (Greenwich park, Cutty Sark, Maritime museum, observatory, market, shops, restaurants etc.) but noise isn't a concern as when we returned to the hotel late on Saturday night we didn't hear a peep out of the local revellers! (Of which we were two...) My only tip would be to ask for a fan in the room on a hot day as the windows didn't open more than a crack.

    Nice place, excellent location but.....


    .......there might be a problem.

    Loved the devonport


    excellent hotel. stayed here august, 2003

    only one problem no air conditioning.

    Great weekend rates!


    We have visited the Devonport House a number of times and found it fantastic value for money at weekends. We have always found the rooms clean, spacious and bright, with good facilities. The staff have been polite and friendly and the breakfast perfectly adequate. It has provided a great base for exploring Greenwich but we have also used it for central London as well. Highly recommended!

    Absolutely average for a conference centre


    If you want to stay in a conference centre with canteen style breakfast and offhand staff but pay the price of a 4 star hotel (which is what it claims to be on the website), then Devonport House is for you.

    Overpriced for the standard of room and service, although the location is good, central in Greenwich and a stone's throw from the park.

    A winner in Greenwich!


    This gets my vote for best new hotel in 2003! The Devonport opened in January 2003 as a conference center located in the old Naval College in Greenwich. However, it also offers B&B in high quality rooms for as low as £59 per room per night! It's location in Greenwich can't be beat: about three blocks from the light rail (10 minutes to Canary Wharf and 20 to the City) and only a stone's throw (literally) from the Maratime Museum. Greenwich is a tourist magnet by itself and it is very convenient by rail to London Bridge Station( 15 minutes). So I can't recommend highly enough this location (and hotel) as an alternative base for London. Just to round things out I have some downsides: No airconditioning in the otherwise all-mod-cons room can be a disadantage in the summer and the check out is posted as 9am (though I don't think they're tight about it.)

    Perfect in every way


    the devonport house hotel was perfect from walking through the door,reception was clean and spacious and manned by some very nice polite staff, the rooms were absolutly spotless,with enough space to loose a small country, the breakfast menu was extensive with a wide range of food to satisfy all tastes,polite,helpful waiting staff combined to make a very pleasent atmosphere, the admirals bar was excellent with a wide range of drinks and an even wider range of whiskeys,quiet surroundings and a beer garden in which to wind down after taking in londons vast attractions,so many infact i would not have known where to start if it was not for the help of Tash,the bar maid,whose intimate knowledge of london and underground made for a grade A holiday,highly recommended hotel!!
