Accommodation (Upminster)

Post by andytube » 05 May 2013, 09:22

Does anyone know of any bed and breakfasts / guesthouses / travel lodges within walking distance (20 mins max) of Upminster station? My web searching has drawn a blank!
Current best: 19:51:10 (2014). Hopefully that will be broken in 2018 :-)

There are hardly any ur best bets innkeeprs lodge in hornchurch or palms hotel on the a127 (i stayed there many years ago when finished tube 2) if ur starting in Upminster your probably best bet is to get hotel (travelodge) in romford and get a taxi in that what me and myles did. didnt cost too much extra.

Really looks like there's bugger all in Upminster! Romford is 18 minutes by car, and are taxis running at 4am? Seen a couple in Hornchurch, but that's a 35 min walk :-(

Haha, maybe not, but would have expected a bit more.

Here's an idea you could look at local pubs in the area if they do any accomodation? Bit of a long shot but give it a go?

Or failing that get drunk and pass out on a park bench
