Travel Blogs from London
... I got to hang out with Amanda (Aus) and met Sally, Molly and Phoebe, who also work for Vision (I think). Erin and I also headed out to Herstmontceux Castle for Canada Day. It is a shame we didn't properly meet before, as we have a lot in common, especially our desire to travel, and our independence. We easily spent the entire day together.
July- Well, it has been short, and has gone extremely quickly, now that I leave London tomorrow! I have had ups and downs in the last ...
9. Restaurants close by 9pm.
10. There are 60,000 bicycle thefts every year in Amsterdam.
11. A MAC Bike is a rental not a dodgy fast food.
My last post for a while, hope you enjoyed Amsterdam as much as I.
Summer has arrived here in the UK so I may be tempted to produce some more blogs on our local travels closer to home.
We shall see…….
... to place. Sun. May 4 Went to an 11 am service at Westminster Abbey, gorgeous church, we imagined walking down the aisle like royalty. Music from the pipe organ was great and choir did Gregorian chant. Was just like the catholic mass, with just a few changes and more clergy, this year was the 10th anniversary of the women being allowed into the clergy, and the Dean giving the sermon, said, now we wonder why it took so long !!! Next we walked along the Thames ...
... and Salvador Dali which was intriguing.
During the trip we spent a lot of our time navigating our way around the Subway and I felt like a real londoner by the time we left. London is a really interesting place and is steeped in history and has so many things to show for it, it's definitely a place where you can spend a lot of time there and not have scraped the surface of it.

... the signs which led us to a fancy visitor center where they tried to charge us 15 quid each to catch a tram a mile or two down the road to see the stones, which we both thought was ridiculous, so we decided to head back to a small lay-by we had seen across the road from the farmers field next to the actual site of the stones. when we got there we went for a wander down the path bordering the Stonehenge site, to where there as yet ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Britannia Court Hotel London
Like at home
I had a very busy time when I was on my buissnes trip in London and just becouse of fantastic location of hotel where I was staing everything gone quickly and easy. I was glad that after long day I could came to cousy and nice room. Had a lovely welcome at breakfast time with nice coffe and fresh bread. Like at home..
Best hotel in Bayswater
My son and I stayed a total of 7 nights and were extremely happy with every aspect of the Hotel.
A couple of months earlier we'd stayed at the Crowne Plaza London-St. James which cost 4 times as much and was not nearly as clean and comfortable. Bayswater is a great location for restaurants as well.
Naomi's Mom is such a great cook and the food smells so good that I just wish we could have eaten dinner there occasionally; especially after a long days shopping! Sadly it's breakfast only but that's really good as well.
Nice people, good firm mattresses, great showers and very clean rooms. I could not ask for more. Highly recommended.
Nice Little Hotel
I found this hotel on tripadvisor.com. We needed an inexpensive hotel for our very last night in London. Britannia Court is a simple, no frills hotel. The room was very clean, service was great and the breakfast was wonderful. The location was perfect for our visit to the Portobello Market on Saturday.
Note not to bring too much luggage. We were on the 2nd floor and getting up and down the stairs wasn't easy with all of our luggage.
Other than that, I would recommend it.
Fantastic, friendly,clean ,great location hotel!!!
stayed here for 2 nights in june, during wimbledon fortnight.
very friendly staff, lovely breakfast. fantastic value for money. we unfortunately could not get a en-suite room due to the hotel being nearly full, but the cleanliness of the shared toilet was first class.
will definately stay again!!!
Hotel Britannia Court -- just a 10 minute walk from Paddington and the Heathrow Express -- provides way more than the average budget hotel. The prices (55 pounds for a double and 30-40 for a single) are astoundingly affordable for the location and service, which includes an out-of-this-world breakfast. I would say it was homey, but that's maybe selling it short. In addition to the requisite comfy bed, the room I stayed in had high ceilings, tall windows and ornate moldings plus a smattering of super-cool but functional fixtures. And the breakfast...let's just say that I never ate a lunch during my entire stay. Prepare to be stuffed with (or at least offered) fresh eggs, organic yogurt, fruit, cheeses, various toasts and pastries, meats, cereals, meusli, plus good coffee from your own mini French press. I stayed here while attending a conference, and the staff helped me plot a walking route entirely through parks to my meeting. Thanks to Naomi (the owner) and co. for a great stay! Hands-down, this will be my lodging of choice for all future trips to London.
I stayed at Brittania Court in February and thought it to be wonderful. The hotel itself is cozy and the room I stayed in was clean and bright. Also the location is brilliant-- near everything that I needed and with the tube stops so close by I could go almost anywhere I wanted to in the city with ease.
A lovely little hotel in the heart of london
The best deal in town! reasonably priced hotel in a very convenient location, plus excellent breakfast and friendly staff.
I arrived in London from Hong Kong not knowing where I was going to stay. People had told me of the plethora of reasonably priced hotels in the Bayswater/Notting Hill area and so I headed that way. I had almost given up hope after visiting a number of dives in the area until I happened upon the Britannia Court Hotel on Inverness Terrace. I was immediately struck by the excellent artwork hanging in the reception area (not to mention the dog hanging out by the desk) and was hugely encouraged by the friendliness of Naomi, the owner/operator. I was shown the available rooms and quickly decided to make the BCH my base in London. The room was recently decorated and the bathroom was clean and pleasant. The bed was comfortable and the linen was fresh. What else could I ask for? Intelligent conversation, croissants and fresh fruit for breakfast? There it was. The two-minute walk from the nearest subway station made getting around London very easy and I found myself actually looking forward to getting back to my room at night which, believe me, is not a usual feeling for hotels in this price range.
Excellent find - Britannia Court Hotel, London
Excellent value for money hotel, in great location for London attractions. Hotel staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome.
We had 2 rooms - both were basic but clean.
Continental breakfast included in the price (only £55 per double room per night). Breakfast was excellent.
Hotel highly recommended due to price, location, cleanliness and extensive breakfast.
