Docklands, Excel & Greenwich Holiday Reviews

Canary Wharf, Docklands and Excel

Set in one of the city's trendiest areas, London Docklands hotels are a great choice for a short break in the capital. Surrounded by vibrant bars and restaurants, when evening rolls around the Docklands is the place to be. With fantastic shopping at the high-end Churchill Place Shopping Mall and the traditional Chrisp Street Market, it's a pretty great place to hang out in the daytime too.

Be sure to use the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) for easy access into the centre of London, the fabulous shopping of Oxford Street and Mayfair and, of course, the superb theatre in the West End. London Docklands hotels also happen to be perfectly located for all the wonderful music, comedy and live performances at The O2 Arena, as well as conferences and exhibitions at London's ExCel.

  • Canary Wharf, one of London's most iconic buildings, is situated in the Docklands area and is home to wonderful shopping - a must during your stay.
  • Enjoy a trip on the Emirates Air Line - a great way to get views of The O2 Arena and visit the south side of the Thames including pretty Greenwich, home to Cutty Sark and the Royal Observatory.
  • Historically the world's biggest port, the Docklands is now one of London's hottest up and coming areas - be sure to enjoy a nightcap in a dockside bar, for pretty views over the water to this heavily transformed and redeveloped area.


An excellent choice for a short stay in the capital, check out our great range of London Docklands hotels below for a getaway to remember.

London Weekend

Stay Date: 23/08/08, a customer from Carlisle who stayed at 4* International Hotel in Docklands wrote this review.

Support Carlisle United and as they were playing at Leyton Orient and QPR booked hotel in middle of grounds. Britannia International Hotel was booked and paid for on line and was easy to do. Bought See More  Read more information day passes for zones 1 and 2 on London Underground and it covered all the tourist attractions we wanted to visit. The passes could also be used on the buses too. Cheap and easy to get around Londonand very quick. Saw Woman in Black and The 39 Steps - Both shows had smaller casts and were performed in smaller theaters but both were given standing ovations. We were entertained throughout theperformances and the cast were marvellous. Only 3 cast in Woman in Black and 4 in The 39 Steps so they needed to perform to excellent standards and did.   Collapse  Hide

Docklands - A Good Area To Consider

Stay Date: 04/10/08, a customer who stayed at 4* International Hotel in Docklands wrote this review.

The International was a pleasant, modern hotel with large reception and dining areas. The staff were polite and friendly and there was a good choice of food for breakfast. We opted for an upgraded See More  Read more information superior room on the 8th floor which was quite spacious, quiet and reasonably clean, though the choice of programmes on the bedroom TV was a bit limited. We had nice views of the Thames and CanaryWharf, plus, the hotel had its own gym and swimming pool, though we did not have the time to try them. On the downside, some fittings in the room appeared to be badly attached, the sealant in the bathroomneeded to be renewed and one of the chandelier lights was hung low enough to hit your head on. There were problems connecting to the hotel's WiFi and one of their coin-operated Internet PCs acceptedmoney but was out of order. However, we would certainly consider returning to this hotel and the docklands on subsequent trips. It was very easy to get to and from the hotel via the South Quaystation using the London Underground and the Docklands Light Railway. There was a large, modern, shopping centre with a wide variety of restaurants within few minutes walk and the area had some pleasantpedestrian areas near the river. Additionally, it is quite close to the O2 Arena.   Collapse  Hide

Queen at The O2

Stay Date: 07/11/08, a customer from Superbreak who stayed at 4* Novotel London Excel in Docklands wrote this review.

We stayed at The Novotel at ExCeL with a group of friends. Twenty of us went to see Queen and Paul Rogers at The O2. We ranged in age from 7 to 60 and every one of us loved it. The hotel was See More  Read more information perfect. Rooms were all ready for us. We did not have much time before heading off to the concert. The O2 is only a short ride away on the tube. Queen and Paul Rogers were even better than we hadexpected. What a great gig. Over two hours on stage, and they played hit after hit. It is true to say that we all looked a little worse for wear over breakfast the next morning, but what memories we tookhome.   Collapse  Hide
