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.

We started the day with a trip to abbey road and a crixket match. We know as much about cricket now as we did before we watched. Toured Buckingham Palace but didn't see the queen or any princesses. Deb was with a prince so that had to be food enough. Then met tom and Russell for lunch at the red lion. After fish and chips with English beer we toured the government offices and saw Westminister abbey and parliament including big Ben. Lastly we rode the London eye and saw the city from up ...
... our train and were on our way to London.
Upon arrival, we (our parents) somehow managed to navigate the Tube system flawlessly, and we finally arrived at the apartment where I am now. We are going to be borrowing the flat from family for the five days we will be in London. I spent the rest of the night in, writing and eating cookies. Pretty fantastic... Goodnight!!
We started to get rained on so we went into the park next to the Palace to avoid most of the downpour. To pass the time I got a Belgian waffle smothered in Nutella and topped with ice cream. It was bliss haha. When the rain started to ease up a bit, we decided to start walking towards Big Ben and Westminster Abbey as the changing of the guard was still over an hour away ...
Up early. Breakfast at hotel. Alex had scrambled eggs, bacon, bangers (didn't like), and toasted English muffin. And milk. Picked up at front of hotel at 8; van of 16 tourists, from Brazil, Texas, California, Virginia. Tour guide Mike was from Chicago, but long time resident of England. First stop after 90 minutes was Stonehenge. Morning was sunny and warm. After 45 minutes, headed to ...
... Scotland isn't looking good, but we've had such good weather the whole time we were in Portugal, we're probably due for some bad weather. Can't do anything about it, so we'll just have to go with whatever!
The flight was fairly uneventful, and before long we were looking down on the green patchwork of south east England, and getting ready to start the next leg of our adventure. We flew into Stansted airport, on the north east side ...
