EasyHotel, South Kensington, London

If you are looking for cheap accommodation in a good location of London, then easyHotel South Kensington could be for you.

At 50 pounds a night for two people, it’s certainly cheap by London standards. However, it is the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in!

The room consists of a double bed (with or without a window), two hooks on the wall, two power points, a small TV screen (extra charge to use) and a tiny bathroom with shower and toilet. There is no place in the room to store luggage as floor space is very tiny (ask reception about luggage storage).

This hotel certainly won’t suit everyone. Don’t stay here if you like to hang out and relax in your room. It is a place to sleep and two can be a crowd!

We had a car and while parking is limited, we were fortunate to be staying over a weekend when street parking was free on both Saturday and Sunday. During the week street parking is only free overnight. Parking is also available at Sainsbury’s nearby – but only for a limited time and not overnight.

Located at 14 Lexham Gardens, Kensington, easyHotel  Kensington is in a great location:

  • 10 minute walk to Gloucester Rd Tube Station
  • 10 minute walk to Earls Court Tube Station
  • 10 minute walk to High Street Kensington
  • 10-15 minute walk to Natural History Museum
  • 20 minute walk to V&A Museum
  • 30 minute walk to Harrods
  • 20 minute walk to Royal Albert Hall

Warwick Lodge, Carlisle, UK

DSCN6687_Warwick_Lodge_exterior_200At the end of a long day of travelling, we received a very warm welcome at Warwick Lodge from owners Mary and Nick.

Our spacious double room with ensuite on the first floor was a warm and cosy haven on a cold day. Everything was spotlessly clean with comfortable bed and pillows, tea/coffee making facilities, television, hairdryer and plenty of space for luggage.

A delicious, freshly cooked breakfast is served every morning in the downstairs breakfast room. DSCN6678_Warwick_Lodge_interior_200

There are very good places to eat in walking distance from Warwick Lodge including Casa Romana Italian restaurant and Alexandros Greek restaurant.

Warwick Lodge is located at 112 Warwick Road, Carlisle and we found it to be excellent value for money.

South Hams, Devon


South Hams coastline

The South Hams is renowned for its gorgeous countryside and pretty coastline. We spent a few days in the area and loved the narrow hedge-lined roads, the charming villages and small seaside coves.

The South Hams is known as ‘An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” in the UK and is well worth a visit. It is located in the south-eastern part of Devon, just over 3 hours drive from London’s Heathrow Airport, via the M4 and M5 motorways.

Here are some recommendations on what to see and do. (more…)
