... br> This weekend I found myself yet again in one of the world's greatest cities, and I was not alone. All the way from the frozen North, my dad arrived in England earlier in the week to do a course in Reading. Friday afternoon I hopped aboard the East Coast Train service to London Kings Cross, and then took the tube to Paddington Station to meet him. By the time he arrived it was already pretty late, so we checked into our hotel and then went for dinner at a really nice Thai ...
... I was the only woman. It was quite nice, actually--a warm place to dry off, get my bearings, and take a load off my feet, with no immediate threat of pickpockets or of being pulled or chatted up (the way I would absolutely expect to be at one of the main street pubs nearby.) The place smelled like someone's home; the cider was good; and within half an hour the rains let up. I was on my way again.
I traveled down at least a dozen ...
... York City, but as I kept walking down High Street, it transformed into a Bohemian-like market. There was a beautiful little canal and a set of locks, and a blue train bridge crossing over the road that said "Camden Locks". Camden used to use horses to pull barges down the canal, and had a massive set of stables and horse hospital, which has now been converted into an outdoor market. As a tribute to the horses that used to work there, the market has metal horse statues around every ...
... just sometimes gotta smile and laugh. **** happens, Its just a phone and besides I have a way better life than anyone who has to steal phones to make a living :). Plus I got a badass picture with the cops and had a really embarrassing moment with one of the female cops. Anyways we finished off the day and headed to a PING PONG BAR.....so Epic! Met up with my friend Emma and Kelsey which was a blast.
For Yesterday we ended up traveling to ...
... barrier. We loved the exotic fruits and the lively music. We met some very friendly people whom we saw again later in our trip and were kind enough to show us some of the best parts of Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires.
At the border between Brazil and Argentina we witnessed the fearsome power of the gigantic Iguazu falls. In Argentina we discovered a very European culture, meat obsessed people and great cities displaying stunning colonial architecture ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Devonport House London
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.
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.
.......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.
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!!
