I love London Town...

... seats and had a much better view. The next day, I went on a three hour, 25.6 km walk from Paddington to Battersea, then on to Whitehall and finally Tower Bridge. I adore the city, and it was lovely to have a good wander without feeling guilty about missing out on a museum. In the evening, I went to the theatre again to see Jeeves and Wooster, which was hilarious. Walking to the Tube after the show had finished, I started thinking about my grandmother, who was born in London in the ...

Long story short, the poor guy ended up moving 3 more times because everyone kept asking him to switch, he later told me I owed him a drink (all alcoholic beverages on international Canada Air flights are complementary, so I was happy to oblige)

... didn't work! We had already paid the fare on the other card too, which was so annoying! We tried to pay cash, but the driver said he couldn't change our £5 note (I found out they're not actually allowed to accept any notes, which seemed very strange) so we were about to jump off the bus again, when the girl behind us said she might have change for our £5! Lucky! So we got on the bus, luckily, and made our way to Camberwell. We went to a ...

... cards) online and they had been sent to us so we were all ready to go with them when we arrived in London, just as well really cos the ticket machines and service windows just about always had a long line up. After the show we all jumped back on the tube, Cass and Luke are only 2 stops from us, by luck rather than design, so we parted ways on the train as we headed off at Paddington for a quick stop at Subway for some dinner before collapsing into bed not too much before midnight!

... DO need some low point treats around the house. It's crazy seeing the products in the stores and having the *pro points* listed on them...I've had a sandwich and a yogurt that were marked besides seeing these products...they are more specific than ours, talk about the percentage of sugars, and stress not being made with trans fats, etc...interesting.

I also sat next to a table of women at a restaurant and two of them were WW's...they were discussing getting a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Hotel and Suites London Docklands

    FAWLTY TOWERS

    from

    Though the staff were friendly, the service left a lot to be desired. This was duly noted in the restaurant and bar. Chaos reigned supreme. An evening drink at the bar turned into one of the most unorganized, chaotic spectacles I have ever witnessed, to the point where I thought that it was a set up and a camera crew would appear at any moment to alleviate the distress of all. If there was an award given for the Basil Fawlty recognition for service, their efforts would have had them inducted into the hall of fame. Heard the adage too many Chiefs, not enough Indians, how about no Chief, too many Indians! At one count eight (8) staff were behind the bar, they had run out of glasses (we opted to reuse our pint glasses for fear of an hour long delay between drinks), there was a minimum 45 minute wait on food (our barman told us it would be quicker to order room service and then bring our meals to the bar!). Waiting staff delivered meal after meal to the bar leaving them to pile up as hapless, hungry patrons darted from one end of the bar to the other trying to get the attention of a staff member to claim their meals. The delivery of the food to bar seemed quite prompt, but I soon understood where the 45 minute claim came in as we watched meals stand in the open air of the smoky bar for the duration of the claim. Saddam had nothing on these guys 45 minute Wielders of Meal Destruction claim. A few other funny things happened that night and the following night at the restaurant when we went for a meal, again all relating to service issues, but I won't go into these. To be fair to the staff it wasn't for their lack of trying, helpfulness and friendliness it was just so badly managed and unorganised. As for the rooms they were fine and very clean. Beds were a little soft for my liking though. On check out they then tried to charge me for an extra person per night for the last two nights that we stayed. I will have to check that credit card statement when it comes in.

    Excellent Hotel but not for people visiting central London!

    from

    This is an excellent hotel located next to EXCEL, ideal if you are attending an exhibition there or visiting the area, however, don't stay here if you're visiting London as its way out of town. The hotel is clean and bright, nice rooms - ask for one with a view of City Airport and you can watch the planes. Its soundproofed so no worry about the noise. The food in the restaurant is fine, and the prices suit all budgets - reasonable to expensive depending on your choice. Wine starts at around 14 a bottle, which I though was perfectly acceptable for a hotel, and goes up to 45. The staff are helpful and friendly. If you're looking for a hotel in this location then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one.

    Very Nice Hotel

    from

    This hotel is very modern, clean, great view of city airport runway from our room. 30 odd mins via tube to get into London & very competitive prices via web hotel sites i paid 75 for a double room which included a very nice full english breakfast. I would come back & stay here again.

    Lovely suite a long way out.

    from

    The Ramada is situated at the very East of the Docklands redevelopment, most of the surrounding land is barren and awaiting a use. Ther Hotel was very new and clean, we stayed in a suite which was spacious and comfortable. It was very quiet so a good nights sleep was had. The Hotel is 5 minutes walk away from the Excel centre (which we were visiting) and has plenty of free car parking space. We didn't eat dinner or breakfast in the restaurant, it was very expensive, the bar was very smoky in the early evening but we had a drink there after returning by car from dinner in Plaistow, there was no draught bitter and the prices were outrageous. There was an alternative at the nearby Fox at Connaught an upmarket pub & restaurant recently opened in an old listed docks building a few yards away.

    Ignore the review below

    from

    I stayed in a suite at the Ramada Docklands for three nights. There are indeed two rooms and a bathroom in the suite. The rooms are spacious enough and the bathroom was not especially small by British standards. More importantly, the hotel was quiet, spotless and attended by professional and courteous staff. The comfort level is high, everything is clean and modern, and even the fold-down sofa was comfortable. YES, it is a long, long way from the center of London, so if you're humping heavy bags on the train from the airport, stay somewhere closer to the city (at three times the cost and in inferior accommodation). If you don't mind riding the train for 20 minutes and if you don't plan on howling at the moon, it's a reasonably priced if not centrally-situated hotel.

    Awful Experience

    from

    Terrible experience. I booked this hotel after checking the great rating here so I am willing to share my experience.

    BFE

    from

    The hotel itself was great. I heard some guests complain that it was hot, but that was not my experience. I thought the hotel was very clean and spacious HOWEVER... it was out in the Boonies. It was a 30 min ride on the tubes to get into town so if you're a night couple you had to stop whatever you were doing and start your trip home at 11:15pm to catch the last ride back to the hotel (too $ for a cab ride all the way out there). Then after you got off at the stop it was another 5-10 min walk to the hotel. I'm not lazy but carrying a backpack and other bags and suitcases all that way was a pain. Also, there was NOTHING in the surrounding area. No restaurants or stores or anything. It was a wasteland.

    Most enjoyable stay in london

    from

    The Ramada Docklands was great. I normally despise travelling in london, but this hotel made our stay truly enjoyable. the service was great, and the rooms were clean and comfortable, i didn't even want to leave! it's a little out of the way but a 25 min ride on the tube takes you to the center of london. well worth the extra travel time. it was so modern and clean, i loved it!

    LOVED the Ramada Docklands

    from

    We just returned home from our stay at the Ramada Docklands and cannot say enough about this property! We were very impressed!! The hotel manager and all staff were very accomodating. We had three young children with us and they went out of their way to make us feel at home. The restaurant was lovely and offered non-smoking area. The hotel sits on the Thames, and though there is not much in the surrounding area, it was an easy walk to the Docklands Light Railway, which would connect to the subway system. The rooms were absolutely outstanding. We had a suite and an adjoining room, they were very clean, used the best in equipment and were generously sized for London!!!! The bathrooms were clean and roomy and had wonderful fixtures. We would definitely return to this hotel and recommend it.

    Great Bar!!!

    from

    Ramada's Oval bar is the best watering hole in the Docklands, great choice and helpful advice from the manager Christine. Check it out.
