Good for budget hotel
My family and I stayed in December 2004 in a quad ensuite room. Clean adequate place to stay. Better than average breakfast with eggs and toast. Nice extra. Close to tube station, restaurants, and shopping center.
When we got there, there had been a leak the night before and one of the quad rooms were out of commission. We were given the choice to staying at the hotel or at a 2 bedroom flat nearby. Well, we chose the flat which was beautiful and very large. (Only the kitchen needed some work, the rest of the place was great) We had a terrace, huge windows, and great comfortable beds. With 2 boys, aged 15 and 12, the space was appreciated. We walked to the hotel for breakfast, which I enjoyed, my kids found the food a bit boring. The location was great. We were right near the tube, the rail station, and many conveniences. The famous Peter Pan statue was right inside the nearby gate to Hyde Park. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Clogged Shower and Expensive Rate
We stayed at the Leisure Inn for two nights in April 2004. When we arrived the shower was clogged and I informed the front desk attendant. He said that he would send a plumber to unclog the drain. The second day the drain was obviously still clogged. There also was no air conditioning, so be prepared if it is a warm day in summer. In addition, the morning buffet consisted of orange Tang, coffee, tea, hardboiled eggs, white toast, butter and jelly. This was all for 109 pounds (approximately $200) for a triple. Quite expensive for what you get!
I wouldn't go here again, but they did one good thing
Me and my girlfriend booked this hotel late january 2003 for 2 nights. We booked a double room for £35 per night. When we arrived late at night and wanted to check in, the guy told us they had a "little plumbage problem" and told us we would have to stay at an other hotel which they provided for us. This was the good part of the stay since the hotel they gave us instead "The Duke of Leinster", had a wonderful room with panorama view and was clean and freash. This hotel took great care of us and their breakfast was good. The second night we tried again to check in at Leisure Inn, and this time it worked. The room was very little (supposed to be a double room), it was badly cleaned and the "bathroom" more or less looked like something they built them self over a night or so.

... as we toured the major sites of London.
Today we visited my house in West Hampstead! I took the fam up on the Jubilee Line and took them to my favourite restaurant, Toomai, for lunch. Advertised as a pan Asian street food restaurant, it is very, very tasty. I showed them the sites of both the West Hampstead and Kilburn high streets before we headed back to Kings Cross Station.

... in the section below us. After a poppy ceremony and an impressive musical performance, the game was kicked off.
Dallas led off the scoring, and held the lead the entire game. Though it wasn't particularly close, the crowd remained energetic throughout. In the third quarter the three of us went to the concessions together. In the middle of conversation, I stopped and excitedly pointed and yelled, ...
... photo. Well apparently 100's of other people had the same idea and in addition to it being quite a busy intersection with some understandably impatient drivers, we made the best attempt we could and had a few laughs doing so. As the 4 of us adorned our Beatles tshirts, we were the source of amusement for other tourists also and are no doubt featuring in their holiday snaps. As the daylight dwindled, it was home to our apartment for a short rest before Wayne and I headed back ...
Another early start today and this meant riding the tube at peak hour. When the train pulled up it was absolutely packed to the point that we squished ourselves in so the doors could close. Next thing I was showered in coffee as the tube jerked forward. Great start to the day and the 'suit' responsible didn't care less. Luckily most of it went on my bare arm so I could wipe it off easily. The tube is incredibly hot and I would hate to be ...
... and I went into Colchester early as Helen wanted to look in Debenham's for something to wear when we go to London on the weekend. She was able to get a dress and a couple of pants. We then went back and picked Mum up and drove down to Mersea which is only about half an hour away.
