So here is our super vague plan for the first few months of travel. The aim is to avoid air travel as much as possible!
7th November - fly into Bangkok, Thailand. Hang out for a few days in the city before spending a relaxing week on the beach near Koh Chang. Then back to Bangkok to hire a card and head north ...
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...
... popular theme in Hollywood, featured in such films as The Eagle, The Last Legion and Centurion. It's popularity is due to the fact that the legion disappeared completely North of Hadrian's Wall, most likely falling victim to the mighty Picts.
During the Anglo Saxon period York was known as Eoforwic. I absolutely love Old English names! Maybe I should change my name to Ethelred! The Anglo-Saxon period was cut short in this part of ...

Left York this morning on our way to Cambridge. First stop Sherwood Forest, the home of my childhood hero Robin Hood. My favourite was Richard Green and I used to race home from school to watch the black and white TV show. Walking through what is left of the forest to the Major Oak, reputed to be the area of Robin Hoods hideout, was brilliant. I could just ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kimberley Hotel Harrogate
Liked the small details - guest sausage, wide range of jams and the postcard whe
very friendly hotel - let me go to the room even though I was early. Excellent breakfast including a daily variety of guest breakfast. Even sent a post card when I got home. I am already booking for the Lib Dem Confernence 2007 as its so much better value than the big hotel next door - and they dont charge for the car park either!!
Just come back from a wonderful weekend in Harrogate. I booked the Kimberly based on the reviews for this hotel and how pleased am i??.... very it was lovley. We stayed in an executive suite which was huge, the bed was enormous and so comfy, complimentary wine was left in our room with the usual tea, coffee facilities etc, 2 fluffy dressing gowns were laid out on the bed along with complimentary chocolates on our pillows. The whole place is spotless the staff are well trained which is excellent. The breakfast was just fantastic the best i have every had in a hotel. I ve not been home 24 hours yet and im online booking for another weekend next month.
If you are looking for a hotel in the centre of Harogate, that is total value for money, then look no further than this place.
Everything you need...with a smile
I agree with the good reviews. It's a great hotel, clean well sized rooms, good value for money, friendly staff, great breakfast. Oh and the bar was handy!
However, if you do go for an executive room then be prepared to lose your partner in the bed as it was massive!
I booked several rooms at the Kimberley via a cheap-online booking service, as several of my friends were coming to Harrogate for the weekend.
We were delighted to check into this lovely, conveniently located hotel. The room was large, spotless and well-equipped. The bathroom was also large and provided hot water aplenty -- a real treat after two weeks of tiny guest house baths! The staff was very helpful. But the best part was, without doubt, the buffet full English breakfast, including with such unexpected treats as kippers, fresh fruit galore -- even kiwi, strawberries and blueberries to our surprise -- and, if you can believe it, HOT toast. There are a wide variety of affordable restaurants within view of the hotel, making it easy to find a place for dinner on a Sunday night.
Lovely hotel in an excellent location. We stayed here on business and also hired a conference room. We found the staff to be extremely accomodating and friendly. The food was lovely and freshly prepared, the chef was more than happy to meet any special requests for the buffet lunches.
Hotels rooms were a decent size and very clean, in particular the bathroom was of a high standard.
Highly recommended to visitors on business or pleasure.
Good B&B with a homely feel
Visited 6th July 2004. This hotel is just down the road from the centre, shops, bars, restaurants and the famous harrogate baths. Harrogate is a lovely town. The hotel appears to once have been an old house which has been converted, so all rooms are slightly different, and decorated in keeping with the style of the place (high ceilings and bold print wallpaper!) Bathroom was pretty large and equipped with little shampoos, shower caps etc. We upgarded to an executive room for an extra £10 when we arrived, the other normal rooms we saw were quite a bit smaller. Breakfast good. Friendly and helpful staff. Overall a nice little place to stay.
This was a last minute deal from the internet for us and it really was good value for money. The room was immaculate and a nice size with a really trendy bathroom and a fancy shower! Our window looked out on to the top of a roof which wasnt so great but it really didnt matter. The only reservation we really had was there was no 'big light' as such in the room, just lots of lamps and mirror lights which was a bit of a problem at times but nothing major. Also in our particular room the light from the corridor outside was coming in under the door at night, again though not such a big deal. The staff were really helpful and the breakfast was brilliant, lots of choice to suit everyones diet requirements. The hotel is in a fantastic location, nice and peaceful but literally two minutes from the International Centre and a five minute walk into the town centre. Overall a lovely hotel, very very clean and smart and very friendly with a wonderful location. We would stay again.
Good location, good service!
Found this hotel on the internet, and was very impressed! VERY good location, just a 5 minute stroll from the Exhibition centre and the great shopping area.
Found a cheap last-minute weekend deal (£57 per night for a double room) which included a superb full English breakfast.
Our room was of a decent standard, although it was right next to the reception desk (so quite noisy) and had no view from the window at all (but what do you expect for the money?).
Staff very friendly. I'd recommend this hotel!
