scenic accommodation in S.E. London
|| Finding a quiet
haven in a place as busy as London can sometimes be tricky
but there’s plenty of peaceful hotels that offer
an escape to the tired traveller.
The Wellington Hotel [map],
Waterloo Road, is a perfect example of the kind of relaxed
environment that is available right in the heart of the
action. Not only is this hotel perfectly positioned close
to many entertainment venues, restaurants and bars, there’s also
some impressive history to look out on from your room
with a view.
Across the street is St. John’s church which was
built in 1824 and recently restored to its original glory.
St John’s offers a variety of artistic events and
is open to visitors every day. Guests can soak up the
history of the area or simply relax in one of the many
high standard and en suite rooms. A traditional menu is
also available in the grand Wellington bar.
Relax in one of the area’s most modern hotels with
a visit to The Southwark Rose Hotel [map],
Southwark Bridge. This spacious and minimalist hotel combines
funky 1960s retro pieces of furniture with space age modernism
to create a fun and yet simple environment.
Business travellers can take the stress out of their stay
by taking advantage of the peaceful executive business
lounge on the 6th floor. From here a guest can fax and
photocopy for free and also check e-mails from Internet
kiosks for a very reasonable rate.
