Hi

Has anyone stayed here? I'm planning a weekend in London in March with my DS and 2 DS's (aged 4 and 8) and as this is such a centrally located hotel will probably be staying there. Just a bit concerned about noise - should look for a room at the rear/front of the hotel - which is quieter? Are the family rooms a reasonable size or will we all be squashed in?! Any advice welcome.

Don't know about the County Hall one but we had a family room at the Fulham/Putney branch and it was excellent value. Huge room even by London's appalling hotel standards. Sure there was no service to speak of (that's why it's cheap) but it was clean, bright and everything worked.

Seemed popular with the locals too because the bar was open until the early hours!

I have stayed there. With work though so I did not have a family room. You don't really get a choice on the room positions as hotel is situated at the back of County Hall - posh hotel to one side, Aquarium, restaurants and London Eye on Thames side. The rooms either overlook the back street or the utility area - it may be worth trying to avoid this as the bins etc. create noise quite late at night. Excellent position - 2 mins from tube station, walkable to London Eye, Westminster etc. and very reasonable too - about £65 for the room. Breakfast was quite pricey in the hotel so worth taking ane arly morning snack for the kids and getting them something elsewhere!!

You could try the Spring Breaks deal at the Moat House on Sloane Square. I've just booked (on business - honest!!) and its 70 pounds a night including full breakfast. When they sent the confirmation through it was for two adults, so I am going to try and persuade DH to come down for the evening. It looks lovely, and v close to nice shops!

A friend of mine recomended the County Hall one to me, and was very pleased. We have not tried it yet, but have stayed in other branches of the chain, and found them clean, well maintained, and very good value for money.

One other thing to think about with London hotels is parking. Not many hotels have any and the pay carparks in town are expensive.

The Travel Inn website gives parking hotels for each property in the chain.

I've stayed at County Hall & would do so again; I was just with a girlfriend but there was a double bed plus a sofabed & you can request another bed as well. Agree not to bother with the expensive breakfast, and there is no parking at all, but otherwise it is a great venue; room was very quiet.
