Hello from sunny London
That's right, the sun is shining in London and we are getting a tan!! 26 deg on our first day, 30 deg 2nd day, 27 deg yesterday and 30 again today.
We have done a lot in our 4 days here - sorry I haven't been blogging but (a) no free internet in room and (b) having too much fun!
Day 1, arrived at hotel at 7. …
... figured out the metro by myself. But I had never seen anything like the tube. What can't I say about it. It's beautiful, it's immaculate, it's orderly. The map of the tube is beautiful as well, with its many colors, and appropriately named stops, it is so easy to navigate, and oh so impressive. Just off the train I stopped and talked with one of the tourist info folks. They are all over London, conveniently located, just waiting to help. Oyster card in hand I ...
There are hundreds of people I need to thank such as Aidan, who introduced me to Audax riding & has given me a wonderful platform for long distance riding. It would take up too much space to mention them all here so I am restricting myself to the journey itself & not the before & after.
First & most importantly there was Graham whose pre-planning smoothed what was the hardest ride I have ever completed. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mandeville Hotel London
Conceirge and taxi's
Good hotel - nice room - food excellent.
Do not allow the Conceirge to call you a cab - or if you do - only get in if it is a Black Cab!!
I got ripped off by a private company he charged me more than twice the cost to Waterloo Station.
Excellent Value, Excellent Location
Value for money this is hard to beat, yes the rooms aren't huge but they are immaculately clean and and the decor is excellent, the bed was amazingly comfortable, and the flat screen tv looked great. The hotel has a good quality feel and look. Service from all staff was very good and helpful and it is ideally located just off Oxfoed St. near Bond Street Station.
In Summary it is the perfect base for those wanting to get out and about in London.
Great place to stay!
The Mandeville hotel is an ideal hotel which is located in the centre of london within walking distance from oxford street which makes it great for shopping. The hotel itself is very nice, well decorated and very reasonably priced so it definately makes for a great hotel! I will most definately be back to visit as the hospitality was outstanding as well!
I am in London regularly for business, and the last time I stayed in this hotel. It was perfect for location, room was comfortable and a good size, and friendly and helpful staff. Mandeville Hotel is now the hotel I will use for every visit to London, and i recommend it to others.
Cool hotel - Great location
Was recently booked into Berkshire hotel in Ldn when on business and allocated a shabby room about the same size as a broom-cupboard at GBP160/night. I decided to leave and read the reviews on tripadvisor about the Mandeville (about 50m away from the hotel i was in). What a difference! I had a cool and very beautifully decorated room which although by no means large, was still reasonably sized for London. Staff was great and they have a great Lebanese restaurant in the basement as well.....all this for GBP140.- I'll definitely be back.
Home from home
Had a throughly enjoyable stay at the Mandeville Hotel last November. The efficient staff and homely atmosphere made it a real oasis in the heart of the west end, and with Selfridges on one side and Marylebone High Street on the other, it could not have been more conveniently located or reasonably priced. All topped by the outstanding food and atmosphere of the downstairs Arabic restuaruant - I would not hesitate to recommend this one to friends and collegues visiting the capital.
Best value for great location and beautiful rooms
Recently, I have stayed twice in the beautiful renovated rooms at the Mandeville Hotel. The furnitures and the decor are really cool now with an immaginative designer look. And this not only for a great price but also at a great location! Very close to Oxford Street and Mayfair. There is no better deal! I will definitely stay at the Mandeville every time I go to London, whether I go for business or for shopping.
The Mandeville, cleanes bathroom ever !!!
The Mandeville is in a great location. The rooms are very small but very nice. The rooms are exceptionally clean and beds are really snug !! The bathrooms are immaculate...
For the price i would say that it is very good value
Great location, poor rooms...
Stayed in the Mandeville last October and it was ok for the price as I got a 110 rate for the single room, this is a great price for London.The social areas are nice and the location is just great, however the rooms are not so nice, in fact they are oldfashioned and need urgent redecoartion and post jurassic tv sets so do the old and small bathrooms. The room despite of that was clean. Breakfast was very pleasent.Avoid at every cost the smokers rooms!!!!!!!!!! At firs they gave me one, I almost died there, but the staff was coteous and gave me a non smoking.After all a good hotel if you get very low rate and want a great location.
Mu husband and I have stayed at the Mandeville a number of times over the past years and love everything about the hotel. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The hotel rooms are good and the breakfast they serve is delicious. My husband found this hotel on a business trip and we have used it each time we have traveled to London. We took our daughters with us there one year and some friends a few years later and we are returning for this year. There are good restaurants at the hotel and there are some excellent restaurants within walking distance on James Street and St. Christopher Place. You can get to all the wonderful shopping on Oxford and Regent Streets and it is close to the theater district as well as Buckingham Palace. When going to London, chose the Mandeville as you can't go wrong. It is a wonderful hotel and so close to everything you would want to see.
