Luxury Black Tie London Weekend goes down a storm

2

 

“We had a super weekend in London, enjoyed by all. We had a very relaxing journey to Kings X but the return train was very busy and not so comfortable – older rolling stock.
 
The hotel – the Cavendish – Jermyn St, was excellent – we would thoroughly recommend it for style, service and location.
 
Friday evening we had a superb dinner in the Fountain Restaurant at Fortnum and Masons directly across the Jermyn Street from the hotel. The multi choice menu offered similar dishes to that of the hotel at £25.00 including a half bottle of wine per person. Again, it has our recommendation.
 
The ‘Gentleman’s Outfitters in Jermyn St all had deep cut sales so were well patronised by the group.
 
Billy Elliot was very good although the seats were iffy. Because we were in the front row of the gods there was a substantial brass rail in front of us all. Nonetheless it was an enjoyable experience, and the theatre was close enough to walk from the Cavendish.
 
Then the RITZ, what can one say. A very expensive evening but not to be missed. Service, food and style is truly 5*. We will have it on our itinerary for every group visit to London.
 
All in all a great weekend. Thanks for all your help Mote Weekends. Will speak to you about our next trip soon. Alistair

mamma mia mania..london theatre weekend break

1

The Mamma Mia film certainly has created a furor on the West End too as everyone is clamouring to see the live version on stage. “I know the film is great but there is no substitute for the energy of a live performance” the girls agreed. Lets use it as an excuse for a girlie trip to London and fit in some retail therapy too. How could I argue the logic, with hotel breaks available until April from £89 including a night in a 3* hotel and a ticket for the Mamma Mia show it would have been rude to refuse. Mamma Mia Break

young lovers need privacy for dirty weekend

1

My teenage sons friends nabbed me the other day. You have something to do with hotels they queried?
Mmmm said I ? Well we want somewhere to stay in London for a night in October when Dean gets back from his army training. OK I said London is not cheap though, shall I just look for somewhere simple like a fairly central Travelodge. Perfect they said, we may stay two nights if we can get a better deal. I found a choice of 3 Travelodges for them to choose from all reasonably priced and fairly central – The Travelodge Farringdon – close to Kings Cross, The Travelodge – Marylebone and The Travelodge –  London City Road.

tutankhaum exhibition & hotel weekend break

0

My very educated archealogist  friend Richard rang me on skype hot from his latest dig excavating ancient toilets in deepest Peru. The disjointed skype delayed words finally filtered through ” I know you are going to think me crazy but I want to go and see the Tutankhamun Exhibition before it finishes at the end of August. I believe it is at the O2 Arena, could you sort out a deal for me, with rail tickets, hotel etc. No problem I said I have a deal already in place with a choice of hotels from £ 80 per person including a night in a hotel and tickets for the exhibition, just choose a  hotel and I will sort it out – Tutankhamun Exhibition Hotel Package.

george michael concert – hotel weekend break

3

My ex work colleague Lorraine lit up my phone this morning before I had even finished my muesli…I have got to see him, I have still got a crush on him after all this time and despite his “history”. I take it you mean George I ventured – with flash back images of her boogieing round the handbags to ” wake me up before you go go”. Absolutely I know he will never be mine but I can still dream. He “George Michael”  has announced his final 2 concerts at Earls Court in August. Now when Lorraine had this crush she was a mere child herself, now almost a gran I did have to wonder about the enduring power of the teenage crush. I presume there will be a gang of you and you will want rail tickets and an overnight in a hotel as well I asked, cereal spoon poised to take down all the details. Have you had a ridiculous teenage crush you still harbour – do let let me know I might even tell you about mine … a clue it involved lots of tartan !

no frills budget London hotel break for posh pal

1

My posh and well connected mate Rupert rang, I need a really nice hotel on the weekend of the 21st June, we have been invited to Sir Richard’s party at an exclusive venue in Kensington and “not going” is not an option. Ah well says I then in that case money will be no object. The 5* Royal Garden is on High St Kensington, within crawling distance of the venue and very nice, I warmed to the task I will get you a park view and you can look down on The Royal’s – not for the first time I am sure I teased gently!  I also have a great deal on first class rail so you can travel in style too or are you taking the Bentley .Well my budget is around £120 tops he says plus cheap rail tickets if you can get them. OK says I .. understandably now a lot less enthused, then how about The Copthorne Tara or Kensington Close a bit further to crawl and not as glam but ideal for the purpose and I will do the special National Express East Coast restricted ticket deal for £46 each. Perfect he said lets go for it. Do you have go to these type of glam events and if so do you push the boat out or like Rupert save the pennies…do let me know and reply back.
