... we would get good customer service. You would think that most chili's would be somewhat the same, well we figured out real quick that wasn't the case. We learned that only the south carries sweet tea, and the south has really good customer service. We then made the long 7 hour flight to London. I thought this plane ride was going to be miserable, because my senior year of high school I realized that I have motion sickness when I travel! That's unfortunate for ...
... Suffice to say, my legs feel like jelly tonight! We had a pint, then headed back towards home and had dinner at our local in Mile End. At the pub, there were at least 4 or 5 dogs inside sitting under the bar, or on the lounges with their owners. It’s amazing they let dogs inside like this, basically allowed to roam free around the pub where people are eating. They are mostly very well behaved, but there is no way the health department would allow anything like this in Oz!! ...
... and made me feel uncomfortable at the same time. Once I'm situated Orla recommend this pub to me called "The Regency" great food for a pub and good beer. Strong beer. Every night before bed I went to this pub for a drink. The beer instantly got me tipsy and tired and I slept til almost 11 everyday in London . It rained the second day in London as I walked oxford circus. I didn't mind at all though, there were so many stores and landmarks near that I ...
... The bartender came over and explained the concept behind the distillate, the goal of which was to create a drink that tasted of the nuances of the things that contribute to a wine's "terroir", or sense of place, without any of the actual plant material used in wine. So, they take vodka and re-distill it with clay soil, flint, and lichen (a kind of moss). They then put it in a bottle, chill it down and serve it in a small martini-esque glass. The flavor ...
... have been to see some amazing things, met some incredible people, it's great swapping stories. They fly to NYC tomorrow morning early. Dinner is great, kids are tired, we're in a wee room mostly on our own so they fall asleep and we catch up, drinking some good red wine. We've noticed that things to do - seeing attractions, shows etc is dear, but food & booze is reasonable, really reasonable. Great night. Home via tube - great public transport. Bed awaits after another long ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Oxford Circus London
We stayed at this hotel in December 2004 for 5 nights. We had a room with a nice bathroom but it had murphy beds. The staff was not very helpful. We had breakfast included in an internet rate - it was fine but I would not pay for it seperately. Hotel was very dated - needs to be totally redone! Location is good but I would not stay there again.
Stayed for 5 nights recently. Very convienient location for Oxford St and the tube station, but overall felt that it was very dated. The room I stayed in needed some serious modernisation. Staff were pleasant and breakfast was perfect, but the whole place needs to be revamped in a big way. Probably wouldn't stay there again.
Perfectly adequate, quiet location in Central London
Located a few mins walk off Oxford Street, close to the action but still appearing secluded. Remarkably low profile for a Holiday Inn actually! It's a little corporate in feel especially the rather soulless bar, but the room was perfectly adequate if not exactly spacious. The shower left a bit to be desired also (always the 1st thing to check!) but was at least hot and functional!
The restaurant (dinner & breakfast) was average, but the help yourself breakfast buffet (though an expensive extra) was bountiful.
nice hotel of a quiet street just of oxford st good reception rooms clean and tidy near the sights. only eat the breakfast if you are rich 13 pounds for the privillage never tried it myself turned left outside hotel and went 2 blocks you will find coffee shops doing breakfast much cheaper. it is what you expect from holiday inn good quality .
what can i say. usually people only write to complain, but for this place i had to write to say i will always stay there in future. i use loads of hotels, the location and can do attitude of the staff is second to none!! everything was great. stay there!! it is no longer a garden court but a full service holiday inn
Great room,location and breakfast
We had a family room at this hotel, it was very spacious, with two rooms, and a good size bathroom. The staff were very hepful, and the hotel was clean. We worked out in the mini gym, which was small but adequate. The breakfast buffet was great with a large assortment of cereals, yogurt, eggs, pasteries and fruit. The location was great, Bond Street tube station is minutes away, and you could walk everywhere easily. There are great restaurants close to the hotel also. we would stay here again.
I'd Stay There Again
My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Oxford Circus in March 2004. We have lived in Europe for about three years and have been in a number European Hotels, world-wide chain hotels in Europe and B&Bs in Europe. Having said that I will say that the rooms are what you would expect from a European Hotel room. They were not tiny, but would have been great if they were larger. We had a family room which was two double beds, a little table a couple of chairs, TV etc. It was a great launching point for sightseeing in London. It is about 2 blocks away from the Oxford Street Tube Station. We flew into Stansted Airport and paid quite a bit on a Taxi ride to get to the hotel, but it is in a great location. The service is okay. I called for an iron and it took a while to get one. The breakfast is okay. It is different from what some might see in the States, but it was enough to get you going in the morning. The ladies who worked in the resturant in the evening were very helpful and friendly. The front desk staff needs a little more customer training, but they at least tried to help. The housekeeping staff keep the rooms very clean. This was most important for me. I would stay there again.
Great value + location
Just 2 min walk from Oxford St and Bond St Tube station in a really nice area. Clean, large room with good English/Continental breakfast!!!
Got good internet rate through aerlingus.
Basics, clean, good price/location
a short walk to nearby attractions, this basic hotel had a friendly non-intrusive staff and kept the place clean. a great hotel for anyone on a budget looking for a welcoming, clean place to stay.
Great location, minimal service
We chose this hotel because we got a great internet rate, 30 day advance purchase. The location is terrific, only a couple of blocks from the Bond St underground station, and near Selfridges and the other shooping of Oxford St. Our room was adequate, although a bit cramped for space with three bags and some shopping bags. The bathroom was clean and modern, but all the hotel offered for soap was a built-in liquid soap dispenser with Dove. So we bought our own shampoo and soap.
Amenities are few. When we asked about the benefits of being a member of Holiday Inn priority card, the response was "Like What?" The answer is there are no benefits here. What you see is what you get. But the staff is otherwise friendly and helpful. Due to the great location we would stay here again, but only for a very low rate, such as we got.
