Kingston Upon Thames is one of the oldest, most famous and beautiful towns in the entire south of England. It is the centuries old town where the Saxon kings of England were crowned and one of the major metropolitan areas surrounding the capital of London. It is from this function that the town got its name. Kingston Upon Thames is located in the southwest of the county of Surrey and as the name suggests, sits on the famous River Thames.
Booking a great value hotel in Kingston Upon Thames is made easier by the amount of hotels actually in the area, none more so than the local Travelodge. The south of England is a more expensive proposition than the north, but great value hotels can still be had with some sensible forward planning and bargain hunting.
Kingston Upon Thames is a wealthy town and many of the hotels in the area are four or five stars. However for those who are budget conscious, there are other options, including the Travelodge at Old London Road.
Visitors must decide whether they would like a hotel directly in town, which of course will be more expensive, or one on the outskirts of the town. Obviously factors like whether one has a car or not should also be involved in the planning process when it comes to book a great value hotel in Kingston Upon Thames.
Kingston Upon Thames is located a mere ten miles from London’s Charing Cross and benefits from excellent transport links to the city, making the town a popular commuter town as well as a tourist destination in its own right. The local stations of Kingston, Norbiton and Hampton are all on a line to Waterloo Station and stop at New Malden, Wimbledon or Richmond Upon Thames.
