Also a five times reject!
If you are happy to stay a little out of town, I would suggest somewhere east of Blackheath/ Greenwhich. Its been a decade since I lived in SE London but I seem to remember the trains go to Dartford and Orpington from both Greenwich and Blackheath, so a hotel or b&b should be cheap down that way, and yet still have great links to the start and finish.
I'm coming from Essex, so Dad is droping me off at Dartford railway station and I am expecting room to swing a cat on the train direct to the start.
