      Great Service


      They serve all you can eat/drink; fresh toast, jam, cereal, milk, orange juice & coffee. Their breakfast room is kinda small so you might have to wait a little bit for a seat. Great service, they gave us a small suite with sofa, fridge, plates & utensils for double price room.

      You get what you pay for


      For the price that we paid for this hotel, we get a decent accomodation with a private bathroom.

      The room is small but clean, the bathroom is clean, it's got television and telephone, and there is no charge for using the phone for a toll free number. They cleaned our room everyday and we got clean towels everyday. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is cozy. We got a free breakfast in the morning which consist of toast with butter and jelly, breakfast cereal, milk, coffee, and orange juice.

      There is no air condition in the room, so we have to open the window to cool off the room. The trouble came when it started to rain which happens a lot in London. The rain would come in through the open window, but if we close the window, the room could become rather warm.

      The location is not too great especially in the evening. It is not recommended for a woman traveller to walk alone at night around this area. But it is relatively close to a train station where many tube lines stop. It's about 10 minute walk from the hotel to the King Cross Station.

      ... however we hadn't considered how we were going to open the coconut and after exhausting several possibilities, we dropped it from our balcony and Karen went downstairs and retrieved the pieces!) After a short rest, we wandered out again for another hour or so of walking, making it back to the hotel in time to get ready for 'Roman Night Out' and a tour of Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. The restaurant was called La Torro and dinner included a show with musicians ...

      ... toilet paper?! We had just left the grocery store as it was closing. It was past 6pm on Sunday. Toilet paper is not negotiable! This became our latest crisis. We ran out to gather napkins or anything we could get our hands on. Thankfully Pizza Hut was open and they graciously but unknowingly resolved our t.p. problem until the market opened in the morning.

      Everyone decided to just relax for the rest of the evening in anticipation of starting off fresh ...

      Week 14 equals English charm, a unique Ross on Wye experience and nachos and lots of them. We were presented with our golden ticket to freedom, the house key. We took our cameras and excited little hearts out to explore the town of Ross on Wye. We met the family at their usual meeting place and headed down to local restaurant Weatherspoon's that soon became our home base. They make amazing nachos at even more amazing prices. I now know how guys feel when they have to meet the ...
