... after and slept until about 9.30am before checking out. It was an insane 24 hours for me but it had do many memorable moments and funny times to look back on that made it all the more interesting a story.
So, 2014 was upon us and had started out chaotic enough. But it was a fun time, and so worth the hours it took to get there, experience it and leave. The rest of the year would no doubt be an adventure after all of this!
Until next time,
... in have been cold, at best, and downright rude at worst. Tonight was no exception. She wasn't the worst server we've had, but she was definitely not even remotely interested in helping us. I can't wait to get back to Canada; the service at McDonald's is better than the service here...
After dinner, we walked through more wind and rain--seriously, I don't know why anyone bothers doing their hair here, but at least I know now why I ...

Before lunch I headed into central London and met up with Louise from South Africa. She was also just recently arrived into London so it was nice to catch up with her since I hadn’t seen her since 2010 when I met her and her sister Nina on the Italy contiki I did. We had lunch at a buffet in Chinatown which was good and had nice food and all you could eat for 12 pounds, so couldn’t complain. We then walked around London to places ...

We decided to tackle the Eye today- it was about an hour walk away and gave ua a good feel where most the majorsights are located.
The views from the Eye were very good. The Eye is like a giant Ferris wheel with glassed in carriers that hold 20-30 people in each car. It took about 20-25 minutes to complete ...

We finally boarded the flight, which was pretty rough, but we managed to land safely in London. Caught the tube back to the London hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Dover Hotel London
Very good for the price
Bedroom and bathroom were very small, but overall a great room for the price. Hotel was clean and in a great location, near Victoria Station and a short walk to Buckingman Palace. I would stay there again.
We were required to pay the full amount when we checked in. No wonder! We would have left first thing in the morning if we hadn't. Didn't get any sleep the first night. Even though it was a Wednesday there was a steady flow of traffic up and down the stairs and doors banging all night. At 2 a.m. a man stood outside our door and had a loud and lengthy telephone conversation.
Each morning a waitress brought toast to the table without a word or a smile. We helped ourselves to cold cereal and hot drinks from machines. There were 2 men taking turns at reception. One may have been shy, the other was just surly.
The shower and toilet were teeny, as was the room. We had an uncomfortable stay and the staff were not friendly at all.
I would not stay at this hotel again.
Nothing to complain
We had double room with own toilette and shower. Room was tiny but enough anyway. Hotel was clean and tidy but of course old carpet was stqined and worn-out.
Breakfast was 2 kinds of juice, 5 cereals, toast, hot drinks, butter and marmalade.
Situation was very good. No noice from the staion. I can recommed this 2 star hotel. Bed was very good.
Fine for 2 star hotel
I had booked a triple ensuite. None were available on ceck in, so was given a double ensuite and a single. Was an acceptable budgit hotel. It was conveniently located within 3 blocks of Victoria station (athough a little difficult to find). It is very old and a little run down, but clean. The rooms were VERY small (even by European standards). Front desk was helpful.
