|The perfect place for an overnight stay.|
Since it was half-term and we had a few things planned (London Ghost Bus Tour, British Museum), we thought it wold be simpler to stay in London, overnight, rather than travelling back and forth to Watford.
Usually we stay at Premier Inn, but, on this occasion, we decided on somewhere different. We had walked by the Wellington a few weeks before and thought that it might be an interesting place to stay. Situated just across the River Thames, from where we were to pick up our Ghost Bus, on Northumberland Avenue, it was also close to all the transport links we might need. The Wellington was perfect.
Our check-in was at 15:00, which was the exact time we arrived. The lady reception was friendly and efficient and within minutes we were booked in. With swipe key in hand we made our way to the top floor, where our family room was situated.
The room was quite spacious and had 'London Eye' wallpaper across one wall. All of the rooms have this sort of design, apparently. With an ensuite bathroom, desk, television, fridge, kettle, heating, free wi-fi and more, our room was perfect. There are also other room sizes available, depending on your needs.
|Our Family Room.|
Following an excellent Halloween evening out, we headed back to the Wellington. With two tired girls soon tucked up in bed it was time to relax, take stock of the day and plan for the next day.
The following morning we were all up and ready for breakfast, and so hurriedly descended the stairs to the restaurant area of the bar. With the girls tucking into croissants and cereal, Emma and I decided on the Full English, washed down with fresh juice.
The food was perfectly cooked and served without delay. The staff, again, were friendly and helpful, making for a great experience.
After breakfast we headed back to our room ro pack and get ready for the day ahead. Checkout was a breeze and, after a nice and interesting chat with the landlord, who was possibly the friendliest landlord I have ever met, we headed off on the next part of our two-day adventure.
With so many great thing going for it, I don't think it will too long at all before we stay at the Wellington Hotel, again.
