Busy Time in London

A travel blog entry by lorrog


27 June Another fine sunny morning, it is Nathan’s big day today with his school play.
We arrive early to get a front seat, but there were parents even earlier than us. We all really enjoyed their production of “Mini- Beast Ball”.Nathan & his best friend Theo were Bees. There were 34 2 to 4year old children playing different garden bugs along with singing and dancing,it was brilliant. We then returned the rental car ...

... to the station with us, but then she hailed us a cab and gave us money for it, because she is just the best aunt ever :)
After we got home I finished packing all my stuff as well as put together all the stuff I'm leaving behind (which is quite a bit, I know I'll be thankful once I see how often we have to lug our bags around on this trip.) But still fingers crossed I took enough out.
Now to bed! Have a long morning ahead of me but tomorrow I'll be falling asleep in ...

New house, new job, new life...?

... camp, wearing thongs to the showers, lining up for the bathroom, and buffet style breakfast. Aside from the fact that I had snorers in my room and was aghast that such a noise could be made at night time, the place wasn’t too bad. The bed was comfy, and I’d probably stay there again if I needed to. It was called Palmers Lodge, located in Swiss Cottage, North West London. It’s a very nice area.

I concluded Thursday night with a trip to the National ...

Paddington Station and a lot of churches.

... and David going in search of The Angel Islington. Samuel and all of the Girls went to do Kings Cross Station and the light blue monopoly properties. At Kings Cross station the line to see Harry Potter's platform 9 and 3/4 was humongous. So Annie went out of line took a photo of the trolley while no one was there and we left. All off us couldn't stand up later than 9pm so it was a quite night that ...

... stopping to take some photographs near Westminster Bridge. We went to the M & S at St Thomas's Hospital and bought some dinner - I bought a prawn salad which was fabulous and fresh raspberries - 2 punnets for £5 - yum. We returned to our hotel room for a cup of coffee and rest our feet and then we set off along the South Bank towards Tower Bridge. We have done this walk most times we have been to London, but this time we found it more difficult than ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel London City South

    Good with one niggle


    I have stayed at this hotel several times.

    I would agree with all the positives listed by other reviewers but my 'niggle' is that the toilet is completely separate to the bathroom, and there is no sink in the small toilet room. Thus you have to walk through the rest of the room to get to the 'bathroom' to wash one's hands, itself a little unhygenic.

    This problem is worse when sharing a room with another. I have been left in the unsatisfactory position of being unable to wash my hands immediately after using the toilet for a "number 2". Meanwhile you have to be wary of what you touch in the room.

    A nice hotel, but a poor design feature.

    Leaky shower!


    Stayed here on a short weekend break. Booked online via the Novotel website.

    Excellent friendly hotel


    Just had a wonderful stay at this hotel, staff were very friendly and courteous towards ourselves and our children. There was a Playstation 2 in reception which the children thought was great!

    The rooms were fine very clean and the bath and shower were great. Room service was very quick and the breakfast in the morning was fantastic which was full English or continental.

    The hotel was only a short walk from London Bridge station and in a quiet area.

    I would thoroughly recommend this hotel especially if you are travelling with children and thought it was great value for money.

    Excellent value for money


    The Novotel London City South is a modern hotel on the Southbank of London, in Southwark (full adress 53-61 Southwark Bridge Road). Stayed there for three nights in May. It's fantastic value for money, especially considering the general bad quality (and cost) of hotels in London. It's basically a 4-star hotel with budget hotel rates!

    Big city gem


    By booking online we got a terrific hotel and ended up with the best out of three we stayed in in London and Paris. The modern design of the room means that it seems larger than it is and it is very attractive -- plus we got Walker shortbreads left in the room every day. The location is terrific -- walking distance to all the South Bank attractions.

    Awesome hotel


    I booked this hotel at their own website after finding a great deal. The hotel is prodominately used by business people during the week so they have a fantastic offer on the weekend called the great getaway deal. We paid 89 pounds a night for 3 of us with full buffet breakfast. This would have to be the cleanest hotel i have ever stayed in. The rooms were of a good size and very modern. The bathrooms were luxurious and so very clean. The shower is to die for, I have never experienced such a wonderful shower and I have never seen a bath so deep, a great way to relax after a long day sightseeing. The staff were extemely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was delicious with a good selection of food. The location of the hotel is ideal for the traveller. It is within walking distance to many of the attractions of London and with it being just off the river front it was lovely to be able to go wonder on a night. Also a few steps from the hotel is the bus stop for the sightseeing bus which we found to be very good. All in all our stay at the novotel city south was a definate highlight of our round the world trip and I cannot reccomend it enough to anyone wanting to spend a few days in London.

    WOW! Such a great hotel for such a great price!!


    I stayed in the Marriott at Canary Wharf on business for 5 days before checking in to the Novotel London City South hotel for the vacation portion of my trip.

    Great Location, Great Family Hotel


    Stayed here for the weekend and it proved a really success for our family. Location, south of the river, is great if you want a quiet stay but within easy access of the sights. It is a couple of minutes walk to the embankment and 5 mins from the tube / London Bridge.

    A great place


    We stayed 3 nights and loved it. The location is perfect - a few steps from the embankment near the Tate Modern. Rooms are big, well designed and tasteful. Breakfast terrific. Minor problems were the shower glass door failed to keep the water inside the recess at times and the aircon dripped onto the bathroom floor which they tried but failed to rectify twice - although they cleaned up and replaced towels promptly at each complaint. Good beds. There is a great $$ deal if you stay 2+ nights incl breakfast. The staff were extremely helpful, making bookings, giving advice etc.

    A Great Hotel


    This new generation Novotel is by far my favourite hotel in London. Friendly staff, very clean, modern, superb beds and bathrooms. I have stayed here 12 times over the past 12 months and enjoyed every visit. Parking is expensive though at between 15-20 per day and internet access a little steep at 16 per day.
