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!
