Travel Blogs from London
After redeeming thousands and thousands of American Air travel miles we received in return an all night coach flight from Miami to London. We turned in $600 US dollars at the airport and got in return about 350 UK pounds....ouch.
Arrived in fine shape, tired and hungry. Hard to make up our minds whether to eat first or sleep, but really …
A very lazy morning then off to Westminster Abbey, which pre-dates William the Conqueror, founded somewhere around 1,000 AD. Quite impressive, seems like anyone who is anyone gets married, baptised, and/or buried there, or as the British say, hatch 'em, match 'em and dispatch 'em.
From the Abbey we walked to Buckingham Palace. They opened …
We headed to the countryside today on a tour bus, and we weren't the only ones...over 50 big tour buses from this one company alone head out in the morning, all completely booked.
First stop, Windsor Castle, the largest inhabited castle maybe in the world, and one of the queen's three homes. This was also built by William the Conqueror (a …
After a very lazy morning, we joined the tourists on the top deck of a double deck tourist bus...you know...get on then get off as one wishes.
We got off at the Tower of London. It is said that about 2 million tourists go through the tower each year, and evidently they all chose today to make the visit. The thought of all those queens …
It's my last official night in London. I'll be here for one more night before I come home, but I leave for Paris tomorrow at 2:30. I'd read about this common place thing here to have "Sunday Roast". When I think of roast, it's roast beef and usually for special occasions like Christmas or something. In London it's a weekly occurrence and consists of roast beef, chicken, or pork with all the trimmings. Potatoes, veggies, Yorkshire pudding and ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
On Marylebone Rd 10 minutes from Buckingham Palace sits "The Landmark". A very fine hotel with a courtyard like no other. Massive Palm trees-(fake-but hard to tell), impeccable service-large spotless rooms and 2 blocks from the most famous Fish & Chips establishment in London.

Lovely but some rooms better than others
Originally given superior room on 6th floor. Very nicely furnished but rather long and thin with the roof reducing the headroom on the long side. Felt a bit cramped so asked to be moved. No other rooms available in the same catergory so upgraded to a suite which was utterly fantastic and only £45 a night more. Complimentary overnight shoe cleaning service nice added touch.
I just arrived back from a 5 night stay at this hotel 2 days ago. It location is super and the tube station to the back of the hotel is litrally only a 5 second walk! The winter garden is so picturesque and I suggest that you request a room overlooking it (the odd numbered rooms), as the view is great. The rooms are huge and furnished to a very high standard and the bathrooms are also massive and very well equipt. The staff at the hotel are very attentive and the John Burton Race restaurant is delicious. Even though I arrived at 12 and I wasnt expected til 2 my room was already ready and the staff said it was no problem at all. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone going on a luxury break to London, as even though it is quite expensive you certainly get everything you pay for and more.
Landmark Hotel surpassed expectation
We arrived at the Landmark on Saturday and were greeted very professionally, as we arrived at 12.00 and not due to check in until 14.00, the hotel upgraded us for free to a suite. The overall service was fantastic and would recommend this hotel to all, as i booked the deal through Octopuss travel and obtained a fab deal. This made our stay a memorable one and enhanced our Engagement to a life time memory.The staff serviced our every need and the cleaniness, attitude, surroundings, food, drinks etc... were excellent.I have stayed in many 5* hotels and must state this is one of the better ones, well recommended.
We stayed at the Landmark the week between Christmas and New Year's. I picked it largely because of the glowing reviews on this site. We were not disappointed. Its a lovely place. Though out of the way a little, there are tube stops out the back door of the hotel and 2 blocks away.
My family stayed there for 6 nights between the last week in July and the first week in August 2003. We booked 2 rooms for 4 people.
This hotel is just amazing, everything about it is perfect! It may be quite expensive but believe me it is worth it!! And even better its got a train and underground station opposite the rear of the hotel; so great transport links too!! The rooms are massive along with the bathrooms, and the staff are there to cater for your every need! I loved it so much im going back in a couple of weeks! Definitely rocommended!!
The Landmark Hotel
We visited London in August 2002 and, booking a special internet fare, stayed in The Landmark Hotel for around $700 for 2 nights. The hotel was beautiful and luxurious, the staff incredibly attentive, and the conciere got us great seats to Mama Mia on a moment's notice for a Sat night. The tube station was conviently located just outside the back of the hotel - If you want to go first class and can afford it, this is a great place. One suggestion - if you eat breakfast, be sure to have the special fixed price otherwise you will end up paying a fortune ($75 for 2 a la carte)
Truly Amazing Hotel
This is by far the best Hotel i've EVER stayed at! The staff are so welcoming from the moment you walk in and the Winter Garden is just gorgeous. The guest rooms are huge and and luxuriously decorated, and the health club is fab and if you go down early you get a complimentary breakfast! Opposite the back of the hotel is Malybrone Station, which has excelent train and underground links to the rest of London! What more could you ask for!!?
I visited the Landmark in August 2002 with my 2 kids. As we entered the lobby we felt as though we were thrown into the lap of luxury. For the price, I felt that I had gotten way more than what I was spending. Our room was a Junior Suite it was massive. The bathroom was stunning with Crabtree and Evelyn Toiletries. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The facilities were clean the spa and indoor pool always had complimentary continental breakfast in the mornings. I would definitely recommend this hotel !!
Take me back
My just teenaged son and I stayed here upon our arrival from the USA to Europe. We were haggared, worn, and clearly not upper class. From the person at the desk to every single person in the hotel, we were treated like visiting rich relatives. I can imagine no better place to call home while away from home. There are certainly many wonderful hotels in London, but you cannot regret this choice.
