When I first saw Captain Bligh House on Frommer's list of London Hotels, I was sure it was out of my budget. However, the price was a pleasant surprise and a fantastic London value. Kitchenette fully stocked with everything needed to get started, super clean tiled bathroom. Also, out of the 4 B&Bs on my 11 day UK trip, this one was the only one that gave me use of my own heater - very important to a Southerner visiting the UK! I stayed in The Captain's Room with which had the interesting feature of a ship's style fold-up bed. Desk by day - bed by night.
Location was quiet but less than a 15 minute walk to Westminster Bridge/London Eye. Tesco and Sainsbury's within short walking distance and a nearby laundrette with same day service. Easy location for using either tube or buses (Simon and Gayna gave great detailed info on how to use buses) and short walk to Waterloo Station for use of British Rail.
In short, the most difficult part of the stay was turning in my key and admitting that the visit had come to an end.
