    Good Morning All.. Just wondering if anyone.....

    .... has ever done a show and hotel deal in London. Im looking to surprise the GF for Valentines Weekend and wondered if anyone who has had a great time can recommend a website, a great hotel or show where you have had great value for money..
    Many thanks all.

    ive been looking at both and thinking its expensive.. i was looking for a deal but im not sure wether its better to book seperately now

    we are going at the end of jan and booking the hotel separate and then booking our tickets up there when we get there we are staying for 2 nights at the ibis paying only £102.50 between 2 people so £51.25 each for 2 days stay

    which ibis is that pinklady?

    Hi Kermitzbitz

    Took the family to london last march and from deals we found both here (thankyou members of hukd) and with national express trains and got 2 nights in the liverpool street travelodge inc breakfast,top tickets for we will rock you which was stunningly good and travel to and from the capital for five people and got change although not a lot from £250.

    Travelodge ~ £59 (2 nights)

    Show tickets ~ £150 (2 for 1) so we had a spare ticket

    Train ~ £48 (using family railcard,wrong carriages allocated so we got 1st class lol)

    By getting the extra night at the hotel it makes the trip more worth while as it gave us time to do the eye,buck house,hyde park,a couple of museums and a trip on the thames using two for one offers where applicable.
    We did the trip again in the summer doing the wembley tour and walking with dinosaurs staying in the wembley hilton all for a similar price and are off again soon to see the jersy boys and mama mia.

    One thing i found useful was to travel as light as possible and as soon as you get off the train leave your stuff at left luggage (approx £15) as you cant check in till fairly late on so you either have to wait around to do so or haul your luggage around with you.

    i dont know which one as my mate has booked it but just done a quote for the same time as we are going and this one comes up
    ibishotel.com/gb/…tml

    £96 for 2 people for 2 nights. she has stayed here before and said it is no problem getting the tube in and out of london, i think this is bargain even cheaper than what we paid. ALso a friend told us it is better to get tickets on the day for the theatre as you pick up the biggest bargains especially if you dont care which show you see.

    Good Luck

    yes... i totally agree with wanting to make a weekend out of it.. hilton are doing 50% off weekend deals at the moment but 50% off a £400 a night room is still £200.. it seems a bit extortionate to me.

    you can pick it up a lot cheaper at superbreaks which was where we were looking but the hotels were only basic i would say you are cheaper to book separately

    we paid £51.25 for 2 nights at hotel each and £21 for the train fare have a look for bargains on the trains
    only have to pay out for out ticket now which we are willing to pay around £50 on the day

    thanks pinklady... i'll have a look into that

    The tickets for the show were linked to travel so you had to produce your train tickets to take advantage so worked out @ 2 for £50 though i think you can only get them for mon,tue or wed (half term excluded).
    Hoel was in sale also:)

    I know what you mean but if you want to do the whole valentine (mr lover lover shabba!) thing i'm afraid it's going to cost,if on the other hand you want to do lots getting value for money then the sale rooms are fine if you want to use the hotel as a base and do other things.

    How about a sale room and not one but two red roses...shabba:thumbsup:

    I just checked out the Intercontinental website and they have some room only deals at the Regent Park Holiday Inn for £55 per night for valentine's weekend.

    brilliant thanks

    Just found this; it's a list of all the Plays/Shows currently on in London and you can search by Critics rating, thought it might be useful.
