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.

Out a little late, but had time to walk around Trafalgar Square before entering the National Gallery as it opened. It was amazing, just amazing. Monet, Rembrandt, da Vinci, Michelangelo, van Gogh, van Dyke, Constable, Guardi, and many more. You can see all of the free exhibits in 2-3 hours if you don't stop to read about every painting. To get through you have to keep moving and just stop at your favorites. I stopped and took photos of my favorites. ...
The sequence of events for today went something like:
-Tower of London
And no, I won't just leave you with that. The whole day was rather extraordinary and humbling for many different reasons. The first place we went was the Tower of London. We got there before they had even opened it up, because we knew the crowds would begin to overflow its walls soon enough. When they did ...
... and ambition that drives them to make outstanding provision for those most vulnerable young people we are all so privileged to serve? Beyond that, for my role working on behalf of a national charity, how do they go about being a school of choice, how do they build relationships with parents that are not always on their doorstep and they may rarely see? And let's be absolutely honest, I will happily share and pinch any ideas that might make an ounce if positive difference to the outcomes ...
... The Natural History Museum building itself is incredible, built from 1873-1880 it was opened to the public on 1881. It has amazing ornate architecture that includes birds, invertebrates, animals, insects, plants etc. that have been moulded into the walls and building facades. The NHM is divided into four different zones:
