wonderful hassle free break

We don`t very often book things online and we were a little worried that we would get our rail tickets, be able to book into the hotel and be sure our theatre tickets would be there when we arrived but we need not have worried. We got a letter from Hotel Direct very quickly and enclosed was our rail tickets, very clear instructions followed up by emails. They also gave clear travel instructions and everything ran like clockwork. We were delighted by our break and would have no hesitation in using them again. Hassle free, great hotel and no problems at all, thank you.

I booked a theatre with Hotel Direct

I booked a theatre with Hotel Direct not really knowing what type of hotel we were going to. But what a great surprise to find a very comfortable hotel at a reasonable rate in the centre of Covent Garden. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel location was great easy access to anywhere in central London and very easy to get to. We will be staying again and recommend Direct Hotels to all friends and family. Keep the standards flying high.
