After a few posts, and loads of research I have short listed a couple of hotels that were a) cheap, b) had private facilities and c) had a fridge so we could have light meals some of the time...
All of my researching is probably confusing me even more. The couple of hotels I have chosen are in Bayswater/Lancaster Gate area. Will arrive at HR and get into London by hotelink bus.
The 1st two I can book from Australia on a site that is reliable and well-frequented by me for work, no extra fees etc. Can't seem to get the Troy for more than 20 days in advance. I am going to be away for a chunk of time, so the bulk of my holiday must be in budget accommodation, with a "fling" with luxury at the end!
Any interesting comments on these choices. I am truly undecided, so I am looking for the better location so to speak. would love any feedback. Times's flying and there is soooo much to plan before we go :)
