As soon as I booked I received an email confirmation and few days before my break I had an email from the team advising they had contacted the hotel and they were ready to welcome us. Thought this was a nice touch. I rang Hotel Direct with a small query and the adviser was extremely helpful and polite, answered straight away. Will definitely use again.

Excellent from start to finish

I purchased hotel, theatre tickets and train tickets as a gift for my father. He said everything was excellent. I gave a 5* as booking process was easy, tickets arrived in good time, cheaper option for train ticket up grade to 1st class than booking direct with virgin, and no problem changing the booking from my name to my fathers, they even check with the hotel a few days before that the reservation is correct and email you and to top it off they even told the hotel it was my fathers birthday and the hotel provided a cake, something I wouldn`t do, so he was very grateful for the personal touch. This is the 2nd time I have purchased a package from hotel direct and I will certainly be using them again.

With 300 languages spoken and over 8 million people, London is a leading financial centre, an entertainment hub and is the only city to have 4 universities ranking in the top 40 global league table. The most famous areas of London are packed with events, festivals and a constant buzz of activity; the city never stops and there are enough sites to see to keep you going for weeks!

The Royal Opera House is located in the middle of Covent Garden and only a short walk away you'll be in the middle of bustling Piccadilly Circus.

Mayfair

Head a little west and you'll reach the luxury area of Mayfair. This area is home to countless embassies, hedge funds, real estate businesses, and high end exclusive shops. This is London's largest concentration of luxury hotels and the area boasts rents among the highest in the world. The luxury of Mayfair makes it a particularly romantic area for anyone looking to celebrate their anniversary or Valentine's day in style.
