Giveaway: 3 Night 3-Bedroom Stay in London to a Blog Reader

Luxury Travel Diary, a high-end travel blog with great reviews based in the UK, has a bunch of travel auctions with real bargains.

They wanted to highlight some of these, and offered to help organize a giveaway of a 3 night private apartment stay in London for readers of this blog. I suppose that folks who already know about these auctions don’t like this added attention, because frankly there aren’t enough bidders relative to the value of the offerings and some of these items go too cheap.

Prize: a three-night stay in a luxury apartment in Knightsbridge, London at The Ovington Elegance – subject to availability, stay by April 28 (excluding December 25-27, December 31-January, and March 25-26).

The Ovington Elegance is a superb, luxury Three Bedroom Three Bathroom serviced apartments right on Brompton Road in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge. Two minutes’ walk from Harrod’s store and other exclusive shopping in the immediate area and with easy access to Knightsbridge and South Kensington tube stations, The Ovington Elegance has all of the luxury features and comfort you need for your central London stay backed up by London Lifestyle Apartment’s hospitality and care to ensure that you fully enjoy your visit to London.

London, like Paris, is one of those cities where a residential apartment is a great option for visitors. I tend to book hotels because I have so many points, but coming out of pocket living like a local can be uniquely appealing. This property looks lovely and in a great location — and while not cheap it’s a real value for three bedrooms!

I asked readers to leave a comment with their favorite item up for auction at Luxury Travel Diary, or why they would choose to stay at The Ovington Elegance over other places in London.

The winning comment was drawn at random from those submitted prior to the cutoff time:

The winner is JDN who found a favorite auction deal:

Congratulations, JDN, and enjoy your stay at The Ovington Elegance. It looks like a phenomenal property in London!

  1. Taking a look at The Ovington Elegance, I’d sacrifice my points earning at Le Meridien for my London trip in April, when a friend of mine and I are planning to see some soccer games. Though I’d miss the elite stay credit and points, this place is pretty sweet! Thanks for the opportunity Gary and the folks at Luxury Travel Diary!
