Although the rooms are small, the location is convenient from Paddington but it DOES NOT include breakfast although they do will offer you a very overpriced one downstairs which I would not recommend.

This is our second time at a Shaftesbury which we find perfect for an overnighter in London.

I really liked the parterre garden (geometric pattern of beds) in front of the Palm House.
... t realise that she actually didn't start singing professionally until after she had split from her husband and was already a well established song writer
Most of the shows finish around the same time and the footpaths were packed as theatre-goers spilled out of the theatres. People were singing the songs from the shows as they walked along the street. It was unbelievable. I think it even tops Broadway. Others may have a different view. Melbourne might be ...
... a couple of "i told you so's thrown around but i couldnt be sure) but arrived at the hotel about 2pm. The weather was a typical winters day in London - grey with a little bit of wind and sleet - thanks Darryl Kerrigan the (borrowed) puffer jackets, gloves and beanies just paid for themselves again!
We dumped the bags and got some lunch and then hit the red bus stop to get a quick look around London. By the ...
