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 the graduates found their seats and the department heads arranged themselves, ...

... like at all! So I caught the tram and then the train into London Victoria station which is one of the main stations. Then I headed outside and jumped on the first bus I saw because it was raining and I just wanted to explore. Obviously I went straight up the top to the front row to look out the window. It's so cool being on the top level of the bus, even though it looks like your going to crash every ten seconds. I ended up ...

We pressed the wrong floor in the elevator so spent time going up and down between the wrong floors, finally finding the right floor, spilled out and in a heady rush of excitement forged confidently towards the sound of a tube. The train pulled in, declaring all along the side ...

We eventually found each other and had a little bit of trouble finding a place in the theatre streets that could fit 5 people in for dinner before the show but we eventually found a grat place - good food and nice and warm. We then went and saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was great - slightly modern version with ...
