Good deals and speedy service

I`d been looking for a London hotel room, and had searched a number of hotel booking sites without finding one that met my needs at a reasonable price. I tried Hotel Direct for their Hotel + Rail deal (I was travelling by rail anyway, would normally buy tickets separately. I quickly found a good hotel, in a convenient location, at a better price than the other websites - and that price included the return ticket too, so even better value. The tickets arrived very quickly by first class post. Will definitely use again!

What services does Hotel Direct offer?

As the name suggests we offer hotels.

So we offer rail travel packaged up with hotels across the UK. What's great about our rail offering is that most of our fares are cheaper than you could buy if you were purchasing your tickets separately. We also offer theatre breaks - with tickets to all West End shows. Again we have the best ticket prices available but additionally we have clever interactive seating plans that allow you to choose exactly where you'll be sitting in the theatre. And we offer a huge range of attraction and event tickets from priority entrance tickets for the London Eye to Studio Tours of the Harry Potter sets at Warner Brothers.

The really good news is that you have the opportunity to save money booking your theatre tickets and hotel together with Hotel Direct. That's because hotels allow us to pass on cheaper inclusive tour rates when you book a package. And if you include rail tickets you'll save even more because we package special inclusive tour fares which are up to 50% cheaper than buying your train tickets separately.

Hotel Direct offers all London West Shows with a superb range of seats in each theatre to choose from. If you haven't made your mind up about which show to see we have up to 2,000 customer reviews for each show offering a wealth of feedback and insight from people who've booked with us and seen the shows. Along with our slideshows and videos these reviews will give you everything you need to make an informed choice.
