BL, - the hotel could have been pricey, but we booked it on lastminute.com and it was one of the Top Secret ones, where they they tell you all about it and where it is etc but not which one it is until you've booked - we paid approx £90 for a luxurious double room overlooking Tower Bridge and St Katharine's Dock and all the yachts etc ..... bargain!!!
Still a lot of money for us in the grand scheme of things, but it was a treat for both of us as Christmas had been difficult with Pa being rushed to hospital - and my brother's off abroad for 4 weeks from tomorrow so I'll be doing all the parent visiting etc, - think it was well worth it as a one off.
