Comfort Inn review

Comfort Inn Westminster Centrally located? Nice rooms? Value for money? Worth a stay? 303

Craig’s review… If you want a cheap 3-star then this is the kind of place you’re going to end up with. It’s not great, but it’s not rubbish either. It’s called the Comfort Inn Westminster but it feels more like Pimlico to me. ‘Westminster’ makes it sound like it’s close to Big Ben, but it’s actually closer to Victoria.

Ideally you want to be living a bit closer to the centre of town to save on bus fares, but this is London, and for that you have to pay a premium. The area is still nice enough, though – Pimlico is where you find all the cheapo 2-star, 3-star and B&B hotels – but the houses are all balconied with big white columns out the front. You’re not going to bump into anyone famous, but you’re not going to bump into any muggers or murderers either – it’s a perfectly nice part of London.

The room is small, but not as small as some of the 4-stars I’ve stayed at. The view is all right if you like staring at bricks. You get a shower and hairdryer, a kettle and three tea bags, plus a couple of bottles of mineral water in case you don’t trust the taps. If this was a 4-star hotel then you can bet your life they’d be charging three quid each for those bottles of water because that’s how hotels operate: the more you pay for a room the more expensive everything else becomes. The more money you have, the more money they want. At a 3-star hotel you get complimentary tea bags and a pot of milk, but at The Ritz you don’t even get a kettle – you have to order it from room service for £6.50 a go! We all eat and drink the same stuff, but rich people pay five times the price for it. But they can afford it I suppose.

The breakfast isn’t up to much. It’s just a piece of toast and some fun-size cereal boxes, plus a pot of yoghurt and a croissant – not exactly the breakfast of champions. But the room is cheerful enough.

To sum it up then… it’s not the kind of place that you’re going to go home raving about, but it’s a perfectly decent little 3-star hotel that will keep you happy for a few nights.

Craig’s review of Leicester Square Everybody looks wrecked in the morning but I'm the middle-aged kind of wrecked, where you roll out of bed feeling like you've only had five minutes kip. These sleeping kids in Leicester Square are the other type: they look like they're at the tail-end of a long night out that still hasn't ended yet. I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore -- I much prefer Leicester Square during th… continued
Craig’s review of Sky Garden I used to think of this as the Palm House at Kew, 500 feet in the sky. But now I think of it as one of those giant sci-fi cities in the clouds. This is how we'll all be living soon, enclosed in a giant bio-dome. Skyscrapers are usually out of bounds to the public but all you have to do for the Sky Garden is book a time slot on their website. Once you've made it past the airport sca… continued
