I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a nice place to stay in/around London. My fiance and I will have an overnight layover in London in early November. We will be flying out of Heathrow around 10am, so we'd like to either be in London or in the Hounslow/Ealing/Osterley area. (We're basically looking for easy tube access into London that night and back to Heathrow the next morning)
We really enjoy staying in nice bed and breakfasts, so we'd prefer staying in a B&B. Also, we found some places on the internet that looked alright and I was hoping someone knew something about them. They are Civic Guest House (found 1 bad review about this one on the net), Crompton Guest House, Ealing Guest House, Lampton Guest House and Osterley Four Pillars Hotel. Thanks in advance to everyone for they're help.
P.S. Any chance we could catch a Rugby match at Twickenham in November if we arrive around 4pm? (Is there a website the lists the Rugby schedules?) Thanks again.
Why not consider somewhere like Windsor rather than what are essentially the suburbs of London? Easy to get to from Heathrow and much nicer. Or catch the Paddington Express, which only takes 15 minutes into west London and stay somewhere local to that. Beauty of this is that you can check in your bags at the Station rather than schlepp them all the way out to Heathrow (allow 2 hours). There's hardly ever a queue! Even if its less than 2 hours, check in at the station anyway, you have to take your bags with you but no queueing in Heathrow itself (Paddington may have 2 people in front of you as opposed to the 32 at Heathrow).
Rugby - all eyes will be on the World Cup in Australia at the time, I'm afraid.
Ealing and Osterley are NOT very romantic places! Richmond is much nicer, on the river, with lots of good restaurants and a reasonable cab ride from the airport (or take a bus from Hatton Cross - around 35 minutes). Sorry can't recommend any b and bs but I'm sure there must be lots on the web. Try and find one near Richmond Green, if you can.
Twickenham hosts surprisingly few rugby matches - I don't think there are any on in November. We've got the Rolling Stones in August :-)
Check the RFU site, I guess.
