... an amazing concert with Ellie Goulding. It is handy having a housemate who likes the same music as I do!
March- I don't recall what happened in March, but I did go to the C2C (Country festival) and saw Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry and Brad Paisley, for less than I would pay to see one of them at home! Courtney, Katie and I had a blast. We were quite close to the stage too :)
Oh yes! I went to visit Anna in Amsterdam at the end of March!

... appeared. We had the queen, prince Phillip, princess Kate, princess Anne, prince Andrew, princess Eugenie and the duke of Kent. They stood at the top of the stairs whilst the national anthem played. They then descended to the crowd below. The top 4 royals moved down the centre aisle and the others moved over to the side and moved through the crowd over there. We tried hard to see the main royals and eventually moved over ...

... was in desperate need of a nap, so quickly disappeared up to her bedroom. Alison gave me all of the details of the house, the neighbourhood (including the crazy neighbour who sometimes comes out shouting - just ignore her), the shopping, the pub (very important!!!), and then took off. She leaves tomorrow for Hong Kong and then a short visit to the Beijing area, including a 2 day walk on the Great Wall (brrr, that will be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express London - Park Royal
I highly recommend this hotel !
I stayed in this hotel with a friend for 2 nights and 3 days. It was a very nice stay. We had a twin room, the beds were extremely comfortable, the room big enough for us to have space. The continental breakfast was very good as well. There were some muffins, some bread, some food suited for vegans and diabetic people, different kind of juices, yoghourts, fruit, jam, danish pastries, tea, coffee... The hotel was very clean and the workers there very helpful, and very nice, patient, answering all of our questions, always smiling. The hotel wasn't noisy. Another good point is that you can eat there at night if you don't want to go out. There are some meals with chicken, pastas... The choice isn't very big but still it is nice to know you can eat there for there aren't many things around the hotel.
The only negative point perhaps is the fact you're 25 away from Central London. But thankfully it's located in the 1-2 zone on the Central Line and the subway is just behind the hotel. Definitely a hotel I highly recommend.
Stayed her for 4 nights. Great room (size),clean bed/bathroom. Close to the underground - Central Line. You would think it maybe would have been a bit noise, but no it was not. I slept like a baby. It was not too expensive either. Loved this hotel, and will come back on my next trip to London.
Great stay at the express
Stayed here the week of the transport bombings so there was a great deal of distractions & transport problems but we found our vacation stay wonderful. The hotel is superbly situated next to the tube & bus routes with tube journeys of twenty minutes to Oxford st with its own secure carpark. The hotel itself was extremly clean with the staff always tidying up & busy with lots of time for guests which I thought with all the turmoil a great attitude from the staff.
The rooms were not large but a family room had a twin bed & a sofa bed, the overall apperance was terrific very clean & fresh towels & rooms cleaned everyday.
Breakfast is continental style with cereal, toast, fruit juice, tea & coffee which may not sound much but it was eat as much as you like & there was plenty of it, the staff looked after everyone in the mornings & could not have done any better.
Overall this hotel suprised us as this was not our first choice but we will consider this hotel again. Many thanks to the Holiday Express
I have been staying here for one night every month on business since it opened almost 2 years ago, as my head office is opposite this hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, decent bed, good shower, air con, TV etc. It is very quiet. They have recently installed secondary double glazing and the main road outside has just been re-routed so it is almost traffic free. North Acton Tube station (central line) is directly behind the hotel and offers a very good link to the city. Road links are good, just off the A40 (turn off at the huge blue Carphone Warehouse building, you can't miss it! the hotel is just behind it) There is a small hotel car park which you may have to book in advance. There is not much near the hotel, just offices, petrol station and a pub but there is a small general store under the hotel for essentials. I normally catch the tube 2 stops to the end of the line at Ealing Broadway where there are lots of bars and restaurants. Tube runs until the early hours. Breakfast is included and is a reasonable continental effort. The only minor downsides are that the bar is a bit bland and unwelcoming and it takes ages to check in/out (otherwise the staff are fine).
This hotel rocked. If you don't mind a short tube ride to the city center (15-20 minutes to Oxford Circus), this hotel will serve you well. Clean, comfortable, good continental breakfast (which is available rather late in the morning, too), very friendly staff. My husband stays in hotels 14 days out of the month and this was the quietest hotel room he's ever been in... although you could throw a rock from our room's window to the train below, you wouldn't have known it from the lack of noise! It took 20 minutes from Victoria Station to reach the hotel. We loved it.
Hotel located right by the North Acton tube station, if you look up when you exit the tube station you will see the backside of the hotel straight ahead of you. We didn't, asked for directions and felt very stupid.. North Acton tubestop is just within zone 1-2, the cheapest one. We bought a weekend ticket for the tube that was extremely cheap. It takes less than 15 minutes to Notting Hill and 20 minutes to Oxford Circus.
Clean, new room that would have costed 200 euros in the city centre.
What else can you ask for?
Clean but Far
This is a nice hotel, moderately priced with clean rooms. However, it is out of the way and there is nothing within walking distance. Not even the Taxi companies knew how to get there! This can be a problem if, like I, you have an early flight to catch (there is no metro early in the morning) and the taxi service never arrives because they can't find the hotel. There is a tube station a few meters from the hotel, but it does not offer 24 hour service. Other than location, it is a good hotel.
Good choice for London Stay
My family and I stayed at this hotel for a week during our vacation in the UK. Very close access to the tube and large clean rooms with A/C. Phone calls are expensive and there is very little to do around the hotel. This hotel worked well for us.
