The Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London’s so called “Theatreland” is a mere 5 minute walk from the fantastic shopping opportunity of Covent Garden. Catch a show, buy some designer clothing or just spend a night in the glitz of the West End, sampling some of the fine dining restaurants such as Carluccios or the simple pizzeria of Fire and Stone. Whatever you choose to do on you stay in London, having the exquisite Waldorf Hilton Hotel to rest and recuperate at is an out-of-this-world-experience.
Located in the heart of London’s West End, the hotel is head and shoulders above the quality you would expect from an inner city establishment. There are swathes of hugely impressive materials used, from the marble floors to the achingly beautiful carved pillars, this hotel oozes class.

The rooms are painstakingly decorated, with only the finest of bed linen and professionally finished fittings. There is Wifi and wired Internet available in every room as well as in the communal areas.

The 14 metre indoor heated swimming pool is surrounded by marble columns and with a excellent blend of traditional and modern décor. There are soft, fluffy towels on hand for every guest. The low level lighting gives a mysterious yet relaxed atmosphere, perfect for having an unwinding few lengths before lunch. The hotel has 1 bar and 1 restaurant which offer a multitude of drinks and items on the menu.

Guoman Royal Horseguards Reviews

“We really liked it. The room was elegant and clean, cosy, with beautiful views. The hotel square was quiet, but very close to the centre (10 minutes to Trafalgar Square). Shopping opportunities were also not very far (20 min-30 min walk, or take the underground)”

“Very good hotel, excellent base, near the Embankment station. For a big city hotel it is highly recommended.”

“Stylish and first class. We splashed out on a special package booked direct on their website that included a limousine shopping trip to Harrods”

Weekend in the Brecon Beacons

Weekend in Brecon (or longer)

The ancient market of Brecon in The Brecon Beacons National Park is a great base from which to enjoy a holiday in Wales. Whether you want an active holiday and will enjoy rock climbing, horse riding and mountain biking or if you prefer a slower pace of life on The Brecon and Monmouthshire canal, Brecon and the surrounding area has a lot to offer.

Book Accommodation in Brecon

For hotels and bed and breakfast accommodation in Brecon have a look at Hotels Combined which bring up prices and availability for all hotels in Brecon from many of the leading hotel websites including laterooms.com and expedia.co.uk. Popular hotels are The Wellington Hotel, The Castle of Brecon and Peterstone Court just outside of town.

For holiday home rentals have a look at HoseasonsHoliday Lettings and Holiday Rentals.

Activities in Brecon

There are many outdoor activities in the area such as pony trekking and a children’s play area at Cantref Farm, a rope & climbing centre at Llangorse, visiting the Dan-yr- Ogof caves and waterfalls walks at Pontneddfechan, or of course walking in the Brecon Beacons. Keen walkers could try the 96 mile Beacons Way from the Holy Mountain (Abergavenny) to Bethlehem (Llandeilo) over 8 days including the highest peak in South Wales Pen-y-Fan near Brecon. See www.walkwildwales.co.uk for walking holidays in the area.

18 miles away is the eccentric town of Hay-on-Wye, always worth a visit for those who like books, jigsaws, puzzles & teddybears. Near Trecastle and the Usk Resevoir is a red kite feeding station. Carreg Cennen Castle is in a wonderful location and Llanthony Abbey (painted by Turner) is in a beautiful valley. For those who like gardens, the National Botanic garden of Wales and Aberglasny Gardens are also not far away in the direction of Carmarthen, as is a Roman gold mine.

St. Fagans, near Cardiff, the folk museum of Wales is interesting. One of the most fascinating places to visit in this area is the Big Pit Coal Mine at Blaenavon where children from about 7 years old upwards can go down the mine (depends on height).There is no entrance fee as it is part of the National Museums of Wales. And it doesn’t need good weather.
Slightly further afield (40 miles from Brecon) is the town of Swansea with the beautiful Gower coast, or the capital city of Wales, Cardiff. From the 19th- 22nd July the Royal Welsh Show is being held at Builth Wells. This is a showcase of all breeds of farm animals and welsh country life. In August each year Brecon holds a world class Jazz Festival.

For a longer holiday combining two national parks in Wales, there is the wonderful Pembrokeshire coast. I think you had all better plan to stay at least a week!!
