Review of Barry House Bed & Breakfast (or “A Plus Size Traveler's Experience with Historic London's Notoriously Small Toilets")

When planning a trip to London for three people (my brother, my husband Ty, and me), it was important to find a budget-friendly accommodation with a great location. A family room that could accommodate three adults and a full English breakfast were also at the top of my must-have list. This meant scouring the internet for weeks researching budget B&Bs and comparing reviews to see which one would be the best value.

The first thing I discovered was that there are a lot of budget B&Bs near King's Cross Station, and although that seemed like a convenient location, it wasn’t convenient for hauling our luggage from Heathrow on the Tube, especially considering this was going to be our first experience on a metro system of any kind. Don’t get me wrong, the Tube is the cheapest way to travel, but if you haven’t traveled much and it’s your first time in London, a more direct connection to your hotel is in order.
