We stayed overnight as we were going to a show at the O2. Sunborn was perfect. It is virtually on top of Excel and as there was nothing going on there that night it was extremely quiet. It was easy to get to the O2 via the Emirates sky cable car- cost-about £4 each for a single journey. The cable car stops at 9.00pm so had to return by underground.We ate at the O2 where there is plenty of choice.We were pleasantly surprised at the ease of getting back via tube. I thought it would be horrendous but the queue for the tube moved quickly. and as most people were going back to central London, it was easy as very few were going back to Canning Town on Jubilee line and then on to excel on DLR. It took about 20 minutes from leaving the stadium.
The yacht is lovely. We were there before it officially opens so I don't know if the rates will increase. We had the basic king room on Deck one.The room was really spacious and very clean. There were lovely Moulton Brown toiletries in the bathroom.Our rate didn't include breakfast so can't comment on that. I would go back if the room rate was reasonable as it is so easy to access central London .The staff that we came across were very helpful, friendly and pleasant. Although the yacht is under the London City flight path, we really were not disturbed by noise.
