If you want to save around £100 on a hotel stay when you go to watch England play the West Indies in the Natwest one-day international cricket series on the 19th of June, HolidayExtras.com can provide 4-star hotels close to Heathrow Airport. It’s just a case of jumping on the shuttle bus, which runs at least every hour from your hotel, to the Heathrow Connect service where you can easily reach the Kia Oval where the match is taking place.
Cricket fanatics can stump out the busy London traffic and expensive congestion charges, taking advantage of the Heathrow hotel parking available at just £9 for 24 hours at both the Ramada and Thistle hotels. This option could be an affordable way to be part of the cricket action as, on average, these hotels cost around £100 less than those in Central London.
A night’s stay at the Ramada Hotel starts from just £69. The Ramada offers 24-hour room service with high-speed internet to keep a constant track on the cricket league table. You can even enjoy a relaxing cup of tea at the hotel’s contemporary Arts Bar, something always needed at the end of an eventful day.
The stylish and comfortable Thistle Hotel costs from £82.80 and is less than 3 miles from the airport. Add an English breakfast at an extra £10 per person before the big match, for valuable energy needed to cheer on the team.
You could take a chance on booking an Undercover Hotel, with rooms available from £69. You won’t know which hotel you will be staying in until you have made the booking, but be assured this will be a 4-star in close reach of Heathrow Airport. You can’t go wrong!
A single fare from this point to Paddington train station is £9.10 and takes around 25 minutes. From Paddington, you could travel by rail, costing you £4.30 to Vauxhall train station, a ten-minute walk from Kia Oval. On the other hand, you could save another £2 and knock 10 minutes off your journey arriving literally outside the Kia Oval by taking the tube; even better.
Avoid being bowled out by other customers and book ASAP.
