There are 266 of these around London. Each one painted by a different artist. They are all for sale via Sotherby's and the money raised will go to protecting the Indian Elephant.
Regent Street sweeps perfectly. It is full of shopping opurtunities for women. It does have a very large apple shop which had people queuing …
We landed in London at around noon. We actually felt quite good as the flight was very comfortable and we managed a few naps on the way.
The airline provided a chauffer service so we were driven without fuss to the hotel. On the way the driver offered to take us the scenic route but we preferred to go straight to the hotel. The hotel is …
We arrived in London by the "eurostar" and went to hotel, we had to take 2 cabs as we apparently have too much luggage, and I find it funny if not pathetic as an excuse to charge double the fare. So we arrived at the hotel checked in and went for a small tour of oxford street went back to the hotel and got ready to go out the movie as we did …
Tomorrow we fly to Africa for the first leg of our tour which includes safari and aid work so we are indulging ourselves into rest, home work, blog writing and of course the usual bag repack as we will only be allowed 15 kg per person when we go on light plane. So today is really a slow day for writing anything as we did not do anything of real interest.
Some more school work for the kid's then as morning drew to a close I went to get some lunch at the local Mr Paul patisserie and brought it back to the hotel. Marg had to do some work so I took the kids to the Natural History Museum to have a look at the dinosaur etc... We went back home, and I was told London was famous for its Indian food so for …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Marylebone Hotel London
Ignore the other quite ridiculous reviews !
I booked a one night stay at this Hotel after seeing it advertised on another website, keenly priced, in a good location, and looking well appointed.
My wife and i were'nt disappointed at all.
The room was extremely comfortable, well decorated and clean.
The staff without exception were very polite and helpful, and quite how other people can complain about them is beyond me.
All i can say is that next time i fancy a night in London i'll be returning to this hotel.
p.s I would advise anyone considering a stay here to explore other reviews online as i did to get a more balanced view!
This is not a 4 star hotel
I would have to agree with the previous reports about the poor standards of the hotel rooms. Having researched the property on the web site it said the room had a work desk with lamp, minibar and safe. This room did not have these and was very small and in need of repairs. When we phoned the reception we were told that they were renovating and that this room had not had this no other options were available. The location was great, but I would look at other hotels in the area.
We stayed at Jury's Clifton Ford hotel for a long weekend, and could not recommend this hotel more.
We often travel to London and have tried many hotels. We often use websites to book the hotel and so you are never to sure what to expect when you arrive. This time we got it right and for the cost of the room it was the best we have ever stayed in.
Not that bad
I have to say that I disagree with the previous reviewer. This is really not that bad hotel.
I stayed there for a couple of nights in May'04. This is not a five star hotel, but certainly a OK hotel, especially if compared with the rest of London hotels. I had no problems with the room, it was quite small but clean. Breakfast was OK, too. Didn't have time to visit the pool, but I guess that it is quite rare to have that in London hotel...
So I would say that go there, but remember that it's no Hilton.
I'm still in London and had to take time out of my trip to warn you not to trust the other reviews. The people at the hotel are not friendly, and the twin rooms are very shabby and have not been refurbished. STAY AWAY!
My husband had heard excellent things about this hotel and booked a weekend for us over my birthday. Upon checking in we were told they had to give us a smoking room (when we specifically said non-smoking) and were beyond disappointed to see the room we were staying in which was considered their Jr. Suite. The room was dirty, had stained bedding, torn wallpaper - it was awful. We asked to be moved but the front desk said they had no other rooms available - they did not offer any kind of partial discount or voucher for a future stay and were completely unhelpful. We then realized we were given a room in the 'old' part of the hotel. Thats right, there is a 'new portion' (which is extremely nice) and then an 'old' portion (which is below standard). The hotel does not indicate this important distinction on their website or brochures - BEWARE. It was a complete waste of money. Be sure to ask which part of the hotel your room will be in before booking.
This is a modernish hotel, so if you are looking for a taste of the historic, forget it.
A wonderful hotel
My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Jurys Clifton Ford, and we highly recommend it. The rooms are smallish, but very clean and well maintained. The bathroom was very nice, especially for a moderately priced London hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the bar downstairs was wonderful. The restaurant was a bit over priced, but the food was good. The location is convenient to the tube, and there is an abundance of shopping opportunities nearby.
Everything combined made for a perfect stay. I will definitely stay there again.
I stayed at the Clifton Ford Hotel for 9 days with my family in August of 2000. The rooms are small but beautifully appointed and the staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Located in the heart of London, the hotel provides easy access to many attractions in the city. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting London.
This was my first trip to London, but not the first for the company with whom I visited. We read the reviews of those who felt that this was nowhere near what they were expecting. Yes, the rooms were small ( but who stays in you room when you are a traveler), but they were nicely appointed with the amenities that one expected. Our first love was the wonderful lounger and public parlor areas of the hotel. The service we received in the lounge was more than we had expected. Them menu in the restaurant was limited and was listed for the month, however the "continental" breakfast surpassed anything we had ever experienced in the "States". The concierge, Salvatore, provided us with the best seats in the house at the theatres for a magnificent performance of "Mamma Mia","Chicago", and "The Msousetrap". We were informed by a group of conventioniers that this area of London contained the most concentrated group of excellent restaurants in all of London-as we soon experienced. This was my first London experience, and I must say, it won't be my last at the Clifton Ford.
