My sister and I are from Southampton and decided to turn a one day shopping trip into an over night stay just a few days before coming to London. However we wanted something as cheap as possible without having to stay in a hostel and anyone who knows London knows that cheap is hard to find! I searched various sites and then came across the Windsor House Hotel and it was everything we needed. It was only round the corner from Earls Court tube station and was a twin room with en-suite and breakfast!! And it was cheap!! To be honest we only wanted somewhere cheap to rest our head for the night and so we booked it!!
Upon arriving at the hotel we were too early for check in and the lovely gentleman on the desk said we could leave our luggage there and so we did and went shopping for a few hours before returning to check in. The room had two single beds with a small cabinet with a TV on top separating them. The room had a wardrobe a large chest of drawers and the en-suite. The en-suite was something like you would find in a motorhome and was a little small BUT it all worked fine, was clean and also was private!! The beds were quite comfy which was a bonus! The only downside to the room was that the only plug socket was the one being used by the TV and so we had to take turns in the evening to charge our phones. Also we happened to have some very noisey people above us and at points it sounded like they were going to come through the roof but obviously this wasn't a fault of the hotel.
The room came with breakfast but we didn't have time as we woke up late and had much more of London to see before leaving that afternoon. The hotel also lets you use the kitchen but we didn't need to utilise this but this is a fantastic idea!
All in all our stay was exactly what we wanted - somewhere cheap, clean and private to stay. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and we slept well! I noticed that this seems to be a hotel more popular with overseas visitors but I hope that this wouldn't put off any English visitors - it didn't put us off! For its location and its price you can't go wrong! I would recommend this to anyone who wants a cheap overnight stay in London!! Its not grand or posh - it doesn't claim to be! But its absolutely ideal for a bargain stay - more money then to spend on the attractions and shops of London!!
Thank you for having us and we have already recommended you!
