I have a spare room in Shepherd's Bush, about 15 minutes from central  
London. Currently it's packed solid as a warehouse for obsolete  
computers and antique media but I've been meaning to clear that out  
for a while now.

The rack rate for my spare room is a decent bottle of something  
interesting. The only cats are stuffed toys, and the Internet actually  
works, unlike most hotel offerings.

As to Internet access, visitors to LPW might also consider dropping  
£30 on a 3 dongle which will give you 1GB of mobile Internet access  
for 30 days. It's not great[0] but it's cheap and better than no  

[0] As far as I can tell, it's pretty good when you're actually on 3's  
3G network, but if the signal fades and you roam onto Orange's  
pisspoor GPRS offering, you're stuffed.
