Good Morning everyone.
Last week I headed out to London for Kirsties Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace. It’s quite a way to travel just for one day so as Hubby works in the centre of London we decided to book a hotel there.
So I searched through some nearby hotels through Booking.com and came across the Holiday Inn Kingston South – I have a fondness towards Holiday Inn as we actually got married in one at Doncaster – Warmsworth Hall.
So I booked two nights at the riverside hotel.
I arrived around 2pm and checked in. The lady behind the reception was quite helpful and gave me my room key told me that Breakfast was included with my booking. breakfast between 6.30am and 9.30am – Great for me as I needed to be up and out by 9am for the Handmade Fair.
Anyway I head up the lift to my room and swipe my card The executive room is great king sized bed – Balcony overlooking the river – Although the river is across a busy road. I was so tired and hot from my journey down I hung up my clothes and jumped in the shower Then I sat on the balcony with a cuppa, some complementary snacks and I did a little blogging work (its free WiFi) while I waited for my hubby to arrive from work!
A side note – The WiFi is free and seemed quite good on the Thursday afternoon while I was blogging however by the time we had got back from dinner although the signal was fair the WiFi seemed unreliable and I ended up tethering my 3G phone to my laptop to use it!
That evening I had used all the teabags and I really needed a cuppa before bed so we came in from dinner and asked at reception – They gave me more milk and more tea bags!
We watched a bit of TV before we fell to sleep
The next morning came with a thunder-storm. If I hadn’t been going to see Kirstie that morning I would have stayed in bed most of the morning So much more comfy than our bed at home. and no one demanding Peppa pig or paw patrol on! We headed down to breakfast – Buffet style with fruit & yogurt, cereal, porridge or full cooked english.
We were There for a Total of 2 nights and we had breakfast both mornings for this we paid £258

I enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn and would defiantly book again not only is it in a good location but the staff were helpful and friendly and the amenities were good.
We were not compensated for our stay and all the opinions are my own!
