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.

The past three days in London have been salubrious! Marlise and Josh have to work during the day but with their guidance I conquered the public transport system and made it to the other side of London to my parents hotel. We took advantage of the beautiful summer weather and took an open bus tour around London.. We stayed on the bus the whole day, learnt about the history of London and seen all of London's beautiful ...
... We then walked on the south side of the Thames until we reached Tower Bridge. There is a lot of new construction in this area including a complex "More on Thames" which features some quite modern architecture. We crossed the Thames and then headed past the Tower of London. We then caught the Central line from Tower Hill Station to Oxford Street Circus. Oxford Street is the main shopping precinct of London. We visited various shops and managed to get ...
... we used to watch performances of St. Martin in the Field as they were broadcast on PBS. It was wonderful to sit and listen to a performance right there. (The acoustics were phenomenal. The organ is only 20+ years old but the church itself was founded in 1222. There have been approximately three other buildings on the site, with the current church building dating back to 1726.) Afterwards, we had tea and scones in the crypt. (Yes, you read that ...
... re just sitting in a cabinet getting dusty.
We saw the Tower's crows, which seemed way bigger than normal crows, but then, I've noticed that all the birds in England seem to be bigger than the Australian ones, maybe there's more food available or better conditions or something.
After the Tower, we took a boat ride down to Greenwich, which was another thing I'd done previously, but I think it's really worth doing because they tell you about the history of the ...
... 8217;t want to have to count every dollar so I looked at cheaper places instead near Sydenham where I had been in my first air b and b. So I was hopeful I would soon find something I liked.
That Friday night, I went to a Kiwi’s in London gathering at a bar in Fulham which is where a lot of Aussies and Kiwis live. Kiwi’s in London is a facebook page but the guy who runs it does a monthly meet up so since I didn’t really know anyone I decided to go. ...
