Family accommodation in central london for 5

we are a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 kids 15, 13, 11 and are wondering if anyone could recommend any budget accommodation which would allow us all to sleep in the same room in central London and around Heathrow, Bath and Warwick areas. We have looked at Premier Inns but they only allow 4 in a room. Thanks for any help or advice.

You might check out the Harrington Court Apartments located very near the South Kensingtion tube station. I've been receiving good deals from them on Kayak. Look at Kayak. I very much doubt any place will allow 5 in a single room. I think it might be illegal or an insurance problem

Hi Gogab

Have you checked to see if any hotels offer interconnecting rooms?
We didn't have any success with finding this with Travelodge, but I know many hotels have two rooms that are beside each other and have an internal door between the two.

Perhaps this website can help: http://www.visitlondon.com/accommoda...-accommodation

You could always contact them direct with your needs, and see what their response is. Di

For Bath try The Beeches in Bradford-on-Avon. Bradford on Avon is close to Bath and this a wonderful B&B. The Old Dairy can accommodate 3 and there is a connecting door to the Cart House which accommodates 2 people.

Gogab - can you share what the hotel was? It will be helpful to others in your situation

Maybe - maybe not. Depends on the hotel. There are all sorts of hotels near Victoria from very nice to very bad. Which one is it?

Gogab, is your wish for ONE room based on need to find least-expensive, or are there other reasons? Some kind of disability? I ask because sometimes a room large enough for 5 can cost the same or more than a "suite" sort of arrangement, with a BR, large LR with fold-out couches.... would 2 adjoining rooms on a hallway be sufficient... or would 11-year-old be too spooked. You could get a triple & a double adjoining it for the 2 older ones.

we have often found ourselves in separate rooms from our kids - the first time when they were about 14 & 11. we were a bit dubious, but it was fine, really. obviously interconnecting rooms would be better [usually to be found in the bigger hotels] but they are not always available.

good luck!

venere.com lets you search for 5 people in 1 room

I sometimes find a hotel on venere and then search for better rates at that hotel. Sometimes I've found better rates, sometimes not.
