... numerous cruise ships tie up. They are three and four deep, tied one to another. We saw the ship we are to board tomorrow for week long excursion - the San Snova. We meet up with Mark and Kathy Johnson, the rest of our party for this portion of the trip. They had arrived from Zagreb and before that from Amsterdam where they did a three-country, self-guided bicycle trip. We heard about it over drinks on the quayside and more at dinner. We dined at the Alka Restaurant on a ...
... to me as a world class snooker champion found the bus station easily. After reaching a suburb called Hayes, I only had a five minute walk to the bed and breakfast where I'm staying.
The strange thing about arriving here is how hot it is! I saw later in the newspaper that today was actually the hottest day of the year so far in London, so I needed to pull out the shirts that I thought I wouldn't need again since leaving Dubai. The accommodation I'm in is very ...
... mother looking over the battlefield for her sons. We then had a quick lunch in Arras before heading to Pheasant Wood in Fromelles. This is where they uncovered the mass grave which contained 250 bodies of Australian and German soldiers. These were exhumed and most of the Australians identified and then re buried at this cemetery. It was very moving - especially some of the epitaphs.
We had an hour trip back to Lille where we had dinner in a little French cafe and tried to ...
First new experience for the kids was a trip on the underground trains. The novelty wore off very quickly and they admitted it was nowhere near as exciting as they had anticipated. Having been there before I knew there was plenty to do and see at the tower but we had both underestimated the amount of time we would spend there and thought we would get to do something else as well. We didn't even do every nook and cranny of the tower as Shannon was unwell and ...
... looked to be a few streets away ... I think I was a little to excited when I found it lol. From there I caught the tube to St James park station and was planing on walking to the tour from there (because getting to green park involve changing lines and I thought it would cost me more money). On the way I got caught in the changing of the guard crowd in front of Buckingham palace so I decided to stay put and find the walking tour after coz I assumed they would be there (that didn't ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London City - Tower Hill
Good accessible Hotel in London
Transfered to this hotel due the the Comfort Inn not being appropriate, I found this hotel superb. For the price this is excellent, quality of room, fully accessible, with choice of accessible shower or bath. Good sized well furnished rooms that are easy to get a wheelchair in and around, Staff extremely helpful. Food reasonable for a chain hotel. Would recommend it to anyone needing an accessible hotel, and the location is great just round the corner from some of the main attractions in London.
Buona posizione (a pochi passi dalla metro). Le camere erano molto spaziose e perfettamente pulite, i letti comodi, il bagno fantastico, ecc. Il bar era aperto 24 ore su 24. La colazione era buona e c'era un assortimento piuttosto ampio, purtroppo la sala era sempre piena e bisognava fare una lunga coda, persino alle 8.00 di domenica mattina! - Per fortuna siamo scesi alle 7.30, così non abbiamo dovuto aspettare! L'unico problema lo abbiamo incontrato all'atto del check-in. Avevamo prenotato 3 camere per non fumatori con oltre 2 mesi di anticipo (prima che l'hotel aprisse), ma quando siamo arrivati erano rimaste soltanto delle camere per fumatori!! Non capisco come sia potuta succedere una cosa del genere! Quindi, siamo finiti in camere per fumatori nel seminterrato! Meno male che l'hotel è nuovo, di conseguenza non c'era alcun odore di fumo. In generale, è un hotel molto bello.
Cercavamo una sistemazione in centro e alla fine abbiamo scelto quest'hotel, anche perché è appena stato aperto nel marzo 2007. Quando siamo arrivati e abbiamo fatto il check-in, abbiamo scoperto che c'era a disposizione soltanto una camera per non fumatori (noi ne avevamo prenotate 2 e con oltre una settimana di anticipo). L'hotel ha ben 3 piani riservati ai fumatori!!!!!!! Comunque, abbiamo protestato, ecc. ecc., così ci hanno spostati in una camera familiare. A parte questo inconveniente, l'hotel è molto bello e pulito e la colazione è buona (ma dopo aver mangiato, i clienti devono sparecchiare la tavola). Per arrivare al London Bridge e alla Torre di Londra a piedi ci volevano 10 minuti e lo stesso tempo per raggiungere la stazione della metro più vicina, Algate East. Un taxi per il West End costava 15 sterline (circa 22 euro). Mi è piaciuto molto, ci tornerei volentieri.
Value for money
Good location (short walk to tube). Rooms very very spacious, spotlessly clean, comfy bed, gorgeous bathroom etc. Bar open 24 hours. Good breakfast - good range of food, although it got very very busy (big queues by 8am sunday morning!) - thankfully we got there for 7.30 and just missed the queues!!
Only complaint was check in. We had book 3 non smoking rooms over 2 months earlier (before the hotel had opened) but when we checked in they had only smoking rooms left!! Couldnt really understand why that would happen?! SO we ended up on the basement level in smoking rooms! Thankfully as the hotel is new, it didnt really matter as we couldnt smell any smoke. Overall it was a very nice hotel.
we wanted to stay somewhere close so choose this hotel [and it was only opened in march 07].the only problem we had when we checked in was to find out that the two non-smoking rooms we booked they only had one left [we booked well over 1 week]we were not happy about this they have 3 floors for smokers!!!!!!!
anyway we said we were not happt etc etc and in the in they 'upgraded'us to a family room. apart fr that very nice clean hotel,good breakfast [but you have to clear the tables yourself]. took 10 mins to walk to london bridge and the tower of london nearest tube was algate east about 10min walk. taxi cost about £15.00 fr west end. would stay there again very nice.
