I got to sleep thank god. I'm also grateful that I ate at the clubhouse because I wasn't feeling my meal on the way to London.
We got in early in the morning and since I wasn't in Upper Class on the next leg I couldn't go to the clubhouse in Heathrow.... so I legally entered the UK to go to the Virgin Revivals Lounge....I know
... There was a lift on each platform we used on the way in, it was only big enough for the 2 of us and our luggage. You operate it by pressing and holding the up/down button. Once you take your finger off it stops. Well when we went to use it there were people trying to operate it and another group waiting. We decided we could handle the 'down' stairs with our cases and could hopefully jump the queue for the next lift. Unfortunately we were ...
... There was no way we were going to pay to go in to see the grandness of the inside. All churches are looking the same at the moment. 3. Buckingham Palace What a great moment it was to see this great piece of history. We could see so many royals standing on that balcony, it's just a pity it was in our imagination. 2. The Squirrels Kellie is in love with the squirrels. As we were walking through Green Park ...
After Assyria came Greece, where I saw many of the typical red and black vases. One in particular had an interesting story behind it. The vase pictures Achilles stabbing Penthesileia, Queen of the Amazons, with a spear. The legend goes that soon after Achilles plunges the spear into her neck, she looks into his eyes and he falls instantly in love with her. Unfortunately for her, she dies. That's one way ...
... having a cheeky 99 on the way (that's soft ice-cream with a bit of Cadbury's Flake for the uninitated). I ended up by Chelsea Bridge, which completely obscured any possible view of the power station, so I tried accessing the area from the riverside instead, but no joy. Finally managed to take a very bad photo of the tops of the chimneys and then called it a day. On the bus home, I naturally had a stunning view of the whole thing but no ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London Kensington
we stayed here for one night after a concert at Earls Court, good location, rooms clean and comfy, friendly staff and a lovely breakfast, would definately consider staying here again. One thing i would mention though is the parking situation, nothing was mentioned when i booked by phone about the lack of parking at the hotel, on check in i was told to leave my keys and someone would pick up the car to park it overnight at some off site parking ground... all very well handled, but the next morning when the car was returned to us... a charge £27! i wouldnt have said if they had told us about that when i had booked or even the night before on check in.
I stayed at this hotel for around a month in September on business. Having stayed at many hotels in London around the £70-90/night mark over the past few months, this was definitely one of the best.
This place is great value for money. It is nicely located in Central London and very close to the Earls Court station. Buses were also available from nearby Crawly Street (walking distance). Post office, I-net cafes and lots of eateries nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included with the stay and that was very helpful since we have 2 small kids.
Top spot in kensington for value
really close to earls court tube. lots of places to eat and drink around. rooms great for the price-great breakfast with friendly helpful staff. not 5 star but you know what you are getting and get what you need. great value-def revisit
Really great stay
Very well situated,only 2 min walk from earls court station and lots of places to grab a bite,if you cant be bothered going far.
Staff helpful and friendly.Room clean and bed comfortable.
Only complaint is our room was over a train line,this disturbed me the first night but didnt bother my partner,it wasn't drastic though.
The breakfast in hotel was very good,cheaper than if you go out.It was a buffet with lots of choice,alot better than anywhere we could find in the city centre.
We really enjoyed it and will go again.
TRains, trains , trains!
Hmm, why do none of these reviews mention the trains? Our room looked out over the train lines running into Earls Court tube station and the noise was terrible! trains didn't stop until 1am and started again at 5, I hardly slept-nightmare!
Great hotel for-trainspotters and insomniacs.
I picked this hotel based on reviews from this website - and it was a good choice. This hotel offers a GREAT location at Earl's Court with EVERYTHING around you to make for easy traveling. Probably the best comparison is to say the hotel is about like a Sleep Inn in the US. Basic, clean, and comfortable - it was actually nicer than I expected. I would not hesitate to book this on my next trip.
I went to London to spend a Girl's week-end and we were at Travel inn Kensington. Room was clean and very confortable, bathroom simply huges! Nice atmosphere and very good breakfast.
Two minutes walking from Gloucester tube station and two steps from Victoria Station.
Really nice atmosphere
we stayed here for 3 nites in june 2004, the staff were all really friendly and the room was nice and clean, breakfast was lovely,the bath was huge,! really central hotel two minute walk to earls court tube. am trying to book a return trip. well done everyone we had a great stay..
No room at the Inn
Booked a room from their web site in July for November. When we arrived there was no room for us. They offered us a room at the Travel Inn at the Tower of London and a taxi which we declined as we were going to a concert at Earls Court which is a short walk away.
Ended up having to stay at the Cromwell Crown Hotel whcih was a filthy dump.
