Off to the Boat Show or just great for a treat!

Friday, 15 January 2016

Last weekend we decided to visit the London Boat Show. It was a late decision and also one that involved needing to find somewhere close by to stay. Whilst searching for hotels online we stumbled across the Sunborn Super yacht which lies just 2 minutes walk from the Excel entrance, London Docklands UK! If you are looking for somewhere different to stay I would thoroughly recommend it. It's perfect if you are visiting the boat show or just spoiling yourselves with a night or two away!
