I have stayed at Renaissance Heathrow hotel twice before travelling to Heathrow airport.This hotel ideally situated for all terminals. We stayed here in 2016 before a trip to New York travelling from Heathrow Terminal 2 and then last year travelling to Terminal 5 for a cruise to the Mediterranean.
The hotel was excellent and refurbished before our stay in 2016. The bedrooms are very well decorated and great size and considering you are so close to the airport it was very quiet. The staff were all very helpful and polite. The lift had a security system that you had to scan your key card to get to your room. My mum and I booked both stays via holiday extras as they had the best deals and additional discounts codes so always worth googling holiday extras discount codes. I will put some links of some discounts to help you all save some money. I would not hesitate booking this hotel. It’s always worth checking different sites to compare prices.
There is a free bus that’s goes to and from Heathrow Airport. The bus stops outside the hotel and not far to terminal 2. Here is a link below to help you all. We had to book a taxi to terminal 5 as we were a bit further away and not many buses at the time we left but in a taxi it only took 10 mins. We got to the airport a little too early that even the luggage drop was not open. !!!!!! I did help a few passengers check in though.
It’s that time of year when we are trying to decide what holidays we should go on !!!! We decided this year that we were not going to go on a cruise as we had done one last year so a change would be a good idea. We like to make each holiday different so we don’t compare.
I started looking at different hotels in Majorca and then showed my mum a hotel that looked ideal. My mum decided that cruising was a better option as we would be able to do more, more food options and the hotel was in the middle of nowhere.
The next decision was when to go and where to go. He does not like flying so prefers doing cruises from Southampton. My Dad does not think travelling to London via train would be much fun.
Mum and I have cracked it. My Mum and I get the train from Newark to London travelling 1st class which always starts the journey off to a good start. We then walk to Renaissance St Pancreas hotel and get an Uber to Paddington station. We catch the Heathrow express to the airport and always stay in a hotel the night before.
Any cruise lines that would like to provide a free cruise for me and my mum in a suite would be much appreciated!!!!!!!!
Here is a photo of my Mum at about 4 am. We take photos of each other in case we lose one another.
I stayed at the Aloft on the Friday night during the move it dance event. The 1st impressions of this hotel were excellent just a short walk from Prince Regent tube station and to the excel. I picked this hotel as it was the closest hotel to the excel and did not want to walk far on my own. I was so pleased to be able to check in to my room at 10.50 am which was very early. I was really impressed with the room it was a great size. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was very open which could be difficult if sharing with friends. I had breakfast and a snack lunch and both were excellent. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Hi I am Helen and I love saving money. This website is my 1st attempt so I am still learning how it all works. I will writing about travel in particular great money saving tips on trains, hotels and all things travel. I will also publish dog friendly places to go as I have a dog and like travelling with him.
I am very keen on fitness and regularly go to dance classes and the gym. My favourite class is DDMIX. I love going to DDMIX 3 or 4 times a week. The classes are great fun and a great workout with lots of different styles of dance. I have been incredibly lucky to do DDMIX with the amazing Darcey Bussell 4 times. I also enjoy going to body balance classes on a weekly basis.
I love finding discount codes when I am shopping and always look when I am buying to see if there are any available. I also have asked in some shops if there is any extra discount much to my Mum’s embarrassment. !!!
