... we head back towards the tube station and again are bumping our way through the crowds that are still there and surging out of the tube and go a couple of blocks and there is the theatre. Wow, had we just turned the other direction when we came out, we might have made it to the restuarnt in time to eat! Across the street from the theatre is an Eat so we dash in there to get a sandwich and drink and couple of cookies. Into the theatre for our seats and ...
... s and M&S so we've been buying cheap meals there (eating dinner for under 10 pounds - although it's just a soup and sandwich) but it's great quality.
We went there and stocked up on a few things including the toilet paper shown here (mom I thought you'd get a kick out of this). It was all the same price - plain or printed so I thought.. why not?!
Anyway, we had a quiet night in and decided to head to Burough Market in the morning.
I have not been allowed to work since September 30th. The government shutdown is nearing the end of its second week, and various signs of the apocalypse have been showing themselves. The unrest of our city is bleeding through into violent individual behavior that first shocks us and then feels emblematic of the general malaise. DC has seen three highly visible random acts of unbalanced violence in the past month, truckers ...
... once worn by the Queen Mother.
Then a short walk east to see the Monument to the Great Fire of London in 1666, which started 200m from the Monument, in a bakery on what was then Pudding Lane.
For some last minute shopping we took the Tube to Oxford Street, where we visited Selfridges, John Lewis, and Debenhams. Dinner was a short walk up Gloucester Road from our hotel to a lovely local pub for a good honest meal. A nice way to complete our stay in ...
... tickets for London eye.
The queue to London eye took about 30minutes and so did the ride. From the top you could see the whole city, it is so cool! It was about 20 persons in the same cube as us and everybody took photographs and pointed on different things they saw. It was one of the best things I've ever done.
When we came down again we went straight away shopping the few hours we ...
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.
