Is it possible to stay overnight at Hampdon Court

I have watched a TV program recently and according to that it is possible to stay at Hampdon Court for as little as 22 pounds per night. Does anyone know anything about it and if so how do I book.

Have you got the spelling right? "Hampdon Court" may not be the same as "Hampton Court" (the palace). I don't know but I've never heard that you can stay at the palace (unless you are Cardinal Wolsey or Henry VIII!). But maybe someone knows better?

This is done through the Landmark Trust, a non-profit organisation that runs and lets all manner of old buildings for holidays. You will need to purchase the Handbook through:

Is this hotel "Hampton Court" part of the large American chain Hampton Inn? IF so, can you use their web page to book a room? Is breakfast included at Hampton Court like it is at Hampton Inns here in USA? I really like the plushness of Hampton Inns and wonder if the rooms at Hampton Court are as nice as the ones here. Thanks

Yes, Mary, Hampton Court was the first Hampton Inn ever built. It is VERY plush and has a lovely garden out back!

Well I have searched and searched the Hampton Inn site and can NOT find anything about the Hampton Court hotel in London. I really want to try to book a room there for our upcoming trip to London. Do you know if the rates there are like those here, where we can get a very nice double room for around $59? If not, can you suggest any other hotels that are as plush as Hampton Inns and cost about the same?

Mary, the person that said Hampton Court is the same as Hampton Inn was making fun of you, which was not being polite, since you had no idea and you were only asking a question. Hampton Court is the huge and very grand palace of Henry VIII. It is not related to any hotel. You can stay there but you have to go through the Landmark Trust, as Kate mentioned. You will have to go through their website and order a book that has listings available. The website is http://www.landmarktrust.co.uk
Hope this helps.

If the Hampton Court (of the Hampton Inn chain) is not available, try Windsor Palace in Windsor. It's part of the W hotel chain and quite nice for an old place, especially since they renovated after the fire (though the heating is still a bit archaic).

Sean, I'm sure Mary was joking, as she said the Hampton Inns are "plush" and asked the price in her second post, after it was given earlier.

A little fun on a Monday morning.

Tony
can one book a room with ensuite facilities at Holyrood House? I hear it is pretty nice, but the breakfast service is bit dicey.

Last time I was at Holyrood was for the Queen's Garden Party (dont ask how I got an invite), it seemd a pretty nice place as you'd expect for a 'royal' place.

I wouldn't stay there, stay further up the Mile.

Funny that. I have never been invited to the Queen's Garden Party.

The Tower of London has some nice, quiet rooms too. Just be sure and pay your bill in full if you want to keep your head!

I understand the rear wing of Buckingham Palace has been converted to a cosy B&B, and Kensington Palace is taking in paying guests.

Reminds me, and this is NOT a joke: you can rent cottages at Balmoral Castle.
