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.

... a residence for royalty, a prison, a zoo (apparently they don't know how to take care of elephants or polar bears), it was a mint and home of the crown jewels. It was another great tour. After the Tower of London we set off to the Tower Bridge and the Tower Bridge Experience in which we were able to go to the top of the bridge and look down on the streets below through the glass floor. Sarah was absolutely excited about this part and we even got to see them ...

Next week is the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 London Bombings in which 26 people were killed. The last person to be pulled alive from the Tube carriage was Australian, Gill Hicks. She lost both her legs. She has returned to London this week for the 7/7 anniversary. The public have been asked to cut their tube trips by one station and then walk to the next station on Tuesday to mark the occasion.
... away from the work area – beaten. For now she will have to lick her wounds. After a few minutes in the sulking corner Mazie returns.
Pat’s bag is next.
Mazie doesn’t know how to beat these pesky passengers now. She had an open and shut case against Lois. So she forgets about fighting terrorism. But she does know how to upset passengers. And she does appear to be under pressure from her superiors ...

With this all said and done, however, our flight was late landing by approximately 40 mins and I had but 40 minutes to navigate another terminal in the ...
So Ethel is ready and waiting. We've booked a ferry for 25th April and made plans to stay in Amsterdam for the first three nights of our adventure. We still have a house full of furniture and books and heads full of questions about what to take, where to go and how much to plan.
In the last few weeks we have taken at least three large houses worth of stuff to various local charity shops and whilst it feels like there is still tons of junk to go, we're getting there. And ...
