... was looking at was looking at £450 ($700 USD)! My Christmas bears, which I have gotten each year, since the 80's, is awful. They used to be dressed in cute little suits, different each year, with Harrods and the year put on their foot. This year, my 2013 Christmas bear is now called a "Christmas boy", and has on a very plain neckscarf. That is it. Other than that, the Christmas "boy" is nude. Very disappointing. While in Harrods, one of my ...
... Full intentions to nap and hit some more sightseeing for dinner... Both of us passed out and are now wide awake at 1am!! (9am Adelaide time) Thought I'd get the blogging started at least, now packing for Bruges, Belgium :-) Worth noting, it's so great having your oyster card ready to go, so buy one before you leave Australia..having the hop on hop off all sorted was also definitely worth it too!! Photos are on Facebook, will try add some to the blog soon ...
... edition to the Culture Club Boy George. Unfortunately, photographs were not allowed inside the palace, so you will have to take my word for it. Although not being a royalist fan it is hard not to get caught up in the pomp & pageantry, with the palace absolutely stunning & equal to anything I saw in France. The detail in the dress & robe worn by Lizzie in her ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Westpoint Hotel London
I booked a room at the hotel just by chance in 1998 and when I realized how convenient it was I came back in 2000 and in 2001.
Comfortable, convenient and good value
We stayed two nights in July 2004.
Calls itself a hotel but is really a large guest house. Very convenient for Paddington station (less than five mins walk). Room and public areas were very clean. Room was nice & bed was comfortable. TV and phone in room but no tea/coffee facilities. Bathroom was quite small and some larger guests might find getting on the loo a tight squeeze!
The choice offered in the Continental Breakfast was lmited (Corn Flakes, rolls, cheese & Ham, Jam) but there was plenty there. Don't bother upgrading the breakfast to 'full english' which consisted of 1 sausage, 1 bacon, 1 egg and beans - not worth it at £3.
Car parking (Open to the street but with barrer controlled access) is offered for £10 per day extra which is a cheap way to park in London.
All-in-all it was worth what we paid (£64 per night for two people) and, yes, I would stay there again.
Cosy hotel in an excellent location
I stayed at the Westpoint Hotel in November 2001. I must say that for GBP35 for a single room en suite, it is good value for money. The room is comfortable with a double bed and shower. The breakfast is generous and delicious. Best of all, it is only a 3-minute walk to Paddington station.
As close to a bargin as you get in london
Let me start this review by saying after traveling to london a couple of times that there are no deals in hotels. I found this to be a close as I was able to find. Each room has a wc and they are clean. the rooms are fine but on the smallish size which I think is std for london by US stadard. There is a nice breakfast included which can be upgraded to a large for a fair price. The location is great near hyde park and a few tube stops. THis is my first choice for a central london hotel but just remeber that there is not a lot to choose from in this area and price class
Wouldn't stay here ever again
Look elsewhere. My wife and I had planned to stay 5 nights but only lasted one. Fire alarm went off for an hour and a half our first night. The hotel staff blamed and berated the guests for the alarm going off. When guests asked a question, the hotel engineer was very aggressive, hostile and told people they could leave if they weren't (--) happy and to stop wasting his time. Hotel staff wouldn't cal the fire department until pressured by many guests.I witnessed this first hand. Spend your money elsewhere. Many better places in London for the same price.
