A week of excitment!

A travel blog entry by rachbritton


... feels nice to not be wearing the same thing for the first time in 2 months :D

Thursday I received an email from Wimbledon saying that I had received 2 tickets to Court 1 on July 2nd for the 2014 Championships!!! Best news all week. Whenever I feel down I remember I have Wimbledon tickets! haha I’m almost certain I’ll be seeing the quarter finals! That means it could be any of the top 4 (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray) plus the new ...

A day at home

A travel blog entry by monroefischer


... took off my outer layer - a cotton cardigan over my wool jumper (turtleneck sweater).

Yesterday I played the tourist just for you. I have never liked being seen as a tourist, so it was a bit painful, but you are worth it. I have included some photos of my walk to the tube, and some photos of the tube itself. I took the Central line straight to Tottenham Court Road to go to L. Cornilissen & Son, the calligraphy shop in London. There I ...

London — Day Two

A travel blog entry by robertsinton


... to finally visit such an historic venue, home to Oliver, Burton, Gielgud et al, and to experience the reality that it actually feels rather like a smaller version of Christchurch's Theatre Royal, only slightly more down at heel. The performance itself was a mixed bag. James Earl Jones, at 81, is sadly a bit past putting in a good turn as Benedict, and the staging — Rylance set it in 1944 England with the Prince's party as visiting American airmen, presumably ...

Almost like winning the Lotto

A travel blog entry by rebecca.taylor

Sunday morning, 9am, the Glastonbury tickets went on sale. We had been devising a plan to all get onto our computers and click click until one of us managed to get some. These plans all went awry however when Laurence never came home from the night before... yes indeed the boy is a man *****. But more to come on that one later....

So anyways of the original five people going, only Kristy, Claire and I ...

Madam Tussards

A travel blog entry by robynmclennan


A bit later start today - feet have recovered and as Carla has been to Madam Tusards and has a lunch date I am off adventuring alone today. Big deep breath and Oyster card in hand down into the bowels of the city I go via the Jubilee Line then Change at Bond for the Baker St line and arrive at Madam Tusards. Purchased a "no que ticket" - well that was ****! Had to que behind about three hundred people to get your bag checked!! Nether the ...

    Cheap and Nasty


    Stopped here whilst visting london, never again if you want cheap and nasty then this is fine, the rooms are dirty the so called en-suite is no more than a very small converted walk in wardrope.

    breakfast is well, just dont bother go else where is my advice.

    got lied to as well, got told the rest of the money will come out of bank, no got asked for it the next morning after stopping there for the first night.

    i will never stop here again and i advice people to look elsewhere oko it might be cheap but id rather pay a few extra pounds for somewhere more pleasent.

    Never again


    We have stayed in many hotels. both in London and several other parts of the UK, over the years, but never one like this. I know it is cheap and I was not expecting luxury, but I did expect a certain standard from a 2 star hotel. I had originally booked the accomodation at an other hotel through an agency and paid in advance, but on arriving was told there was a problem with the room and we were being accomodated at a 'sister hotel'. The room was small, the en-suite was a joke. The basin was so small you couldn't wash your face without hitting it on the taps. When the toilet was flushed. it continued to fill up so there was the constant sound of running water. The glasses, which we found in a drawer were lipstick stained and sticky. The double bed had been made up with single sheets and a single bed blanket, so there was nothing to tuck in. Fortunately we were only staying for 2 nights, but I am concerned that the many foreign guests who were staying there go home with wrong impression of English hotels. There are many similarly priced hotels which offer a far better standard than this one. I am writing to the agency to express my displeasure and suggest they check it over before recommending it.



    Great Hotel to use as a base to explore London. Its not much; a small room, a smaller bathroom, TV, and a good breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights. Every day the sheets were changed and the room was cleaned. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. I'd stay here again. Its real close to the UNderground Station "Earl's Court" and numerous restaurants are in the area.

    Stay away. Stay somewhere else.


    Our family spent 4 nights over Christmas. The room was in the basement.

    The underground ran right outside our window. The room was dirty and sheets were not changed the whole time we were there. The bathroom and shower was dirty and moldy and the whole room smelled moldy. The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful with our complaints. The included breakfast was terrible, cold toast, stale corn flakes, warm milk, cold coffee and bugs and the breakfast room smelled and was dirty.

    A place to sleep


    Since we booked our hotel through Priceline, my husband and I had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Ramsees is conveniently located on the Piccadilly Line so we were able to easily get to and from Heathrow, and the hotel was only half a block away from a Zone 1 tube. The rooms are incredibly TINY TINY. The bathroom was dark and moldy and our shower had ZERO PRESSURE. The hotel is extremely old and it would benefit with some renovation, especially with their windows.

    Not as bad as I thought it might be.


    I stayed at the Ramsees Oct 27 - 30th 2003. It wan't as bad as I thought it might be. I have worked in the hotel industry 10 years and if anyone is going to be critical of a place it is me. It is basically a place where you go and sleep, and as we were gone most of the day sightseeing it was exactly what we were looking for, and not alot of money, we paid 50 pounds a night. The room was small but relatively clean, you can tell that they do not have the Canadian standards, ie; dusty behind desk, bed etc, but only if you were really looking. The thing that I found the most odd was the 3 foot space that contained the toilet and shower, that was a first for me. Overall a great experience.

    2-star should be 1-star at Ramsees


    2-star hotel but should be 1-star at best. Expected small rooms but bathroom was as small or smaller than in a motor home! (*However, there was a FULL bath at end of hall.) Water had to run for at least 10-15 minutes to get tepid or at least barely warm enough for a shower.

    Mattresses were inner- coil with hardly any padding and very uncomfortable-I layed an extra double-folded blanket under the sheet that helped satisfactorily. However, it IS a budget hotel and we were there for sightseeing and just needed a room for sleeping and bathing so it served it's purpose. I would stay again but would liked to have known what I was getting into up front.

    Poor Choice


    A dilapidated Room; a small, dirty bathroom; and poor management were my experience of this hotel. (The bathroom was so dirty that I had to clean it prior to showering.) Two reservations were made for two different sets of dates. Both were cancelled. The first reservation was cancelled the morning after arriving. The second reservation was cancelled days in advance of my planned stay. The cancellation policy of this hotel is "Cancel By 12 Noon, Hotel Time, 1 Day Prior To Arrival To Avoid A Penalty Of 1 Nights Room And Tax." (Taken from a website featuring the Ramsees Hotel) No monies were refunded by this establishment despite the policy and my requests. Continue your search!! There are many fine hotels in London.
