It's all part of the adventure...

... it was a day of lots of U-turns and missed on ramps/off ramps...

We did make it out of London safely. Cambridge was the first stop, to see the start of Stage 3 of the Tour de France. Bozzie gave us some great advice to park at the Park and Ride on the edge of town and catch the bus. We had a speedy trip in town and had a good view of the riders on their way out of town. After the riders passed, we wandered around Cambridge. It is a beautiful town with so many interesting ...

56.2 km!

56.2 km! I think that says everything about today but this would be a very boring blog if I just gave you the stats. Now 56.2km would not be a big deal if I had in fact been training as I should before I got to the UK however I didn't, so that felt like a very long way today. Along the way I came up with a list of things to try if cycling with someone a lot faster and fitter than you. 1) Give them the map and let them decide on the route. They will have to stop to consult the map ...

The Life of Riley

A travel blog entry by penguinchris

... was so pleasant we stayed on.

We were more enthusiastic about seeing Horace Panter’s Uptown Ska Collective. Horace is yet another former Special and his band includes ex-Special keyboards and brass players too. Fantastic music for a sunny afternoon. I recognised some of the songs and others were new to me. Two live versions of “Guns of Navarone” and two of “Pressure Drop” in two day. Not bad. Not bad at ...

Shrewsbury

We walked our legs off in the Lake District. Now we're looking forward to a change of pace—we’ll step back in time to what once was an Anglo-Saxon village.

Shrewsbury is a picturesque market town rich with history. It was an important trading center in Anglo-Saxon time; its wealth originating from wool. The town could be well defended because of the bend in ...

The adventure is coming to an end

A travel blog entry by rkarolanne

Well, the adventure is coming to an end. I have 1 more day of classes and 2 more nights at Keele left. While on the one hand, I am really excited to come home, I have been reflecting about my time here and I am almost sad that it has gone by so fast. By time I leave I will have lived in the UK for exactly 80 days, and it doesn't feel like it at all. 80 days seems like such a long time, but it feels just ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Plus Stoke-on-Trent Moat House

    Excellent Stay

    from

    Stayed last weekend with my wife and two boys aged seven and four in a lovely family room.

    Swimming pool and Jacuzzi, steam room were a bonus.

    Breakfast was buffet style with everything you could imagine.

    Hotel is only 25 mins from Alton Towers.

    Retail park opposite with all the usual shops, Pizza Hut, Multiplex Cinema, and a Toby Carvery Pub/Restaraunt.

    Highly Recommended.

    Top hotel

    from

    we booked this hotel due to it being only half an hour from alton towers. we were very pleased w ith the standards of this hotel. excellent food, room size and standard. leisure facilities excellent. a top hotel in a good location. excellent shopping centre only five minutes from the hotel.

    be aware that if you travel to this hotel via the m6 it gets very busy and often looks more like a car park than a motorway. hotel offers dicounted tickets for alton towers.

    Nice room and friendly staff

    from

    We stayed at Moat House two nights at end of June, and had a very pleasant stay. We were given a family room (2 adults, 1 teenager, 1 child), and it was clean, towels for everyone, sufficient size and at a good price. The staff were helpful and nice, and the room was well made up every morning. Breakfast was more than plenty. Tried dinner one evening, opted for a chinese (Dragon) in the city the next evening. The hotel lies 15-20 min walk from city centre, but there is a bus line stopping right outside the hotel every 20 min. A big shopping area is 5 min from the hotel, and there is only a short walk down to the canal and a nice place outside for something to drink or eat. The kids tried the pool, but it can be a little bit crowded after office hours (part of a healt club). We will choose this hotel again if we are going back to Stoke for another visit.

    Nice staff

    from

    We stayed here July3-5th. The hotel staff could not have been nicer. The hotel was clean and well staffed. We never heard any noise.

    The one downside was that there had been a severe t-storm on Sunday that had fried the electrical panel for the AC. It cooled down plenty at night and during the day when we were hot the staff brought up fans.

    Avoid

    from

    The bottom line here is that this hotel is not adding any value that you won't find at a Travel Inn and you need a car to get to both, so why pay the extra?

    Well Run

    from

    We stayed on Saturday 25/03/06, just for one night. Myself, partner and 12 yearold daughter.( I work in a Hotel!)

    Great Time

    from

    We stayed at the Moet House as we were visiting Alton towers. There were two families, the hotel gave us rooms right over the corridor to each other. the rooms were lovely and big, very, very clean with bunk beds for the children. we had television and tea and coffee facilities, the bathroom was big and again spotless. we had breakfast included and we could not fault anything everything was very good with an excellent choice. There was also a soft play area for the little ones. We also used the pool which the children loved. we would without a doubt gave it a great rating and would use it again.

    Loved the rooms and food

    from

    My wife,my two boys[aged 5 nad 4 years] stayed here for 2 nights and had an absolutely lovely time.The staff were friendly,the food was excellent and the room was comfortable.The hotel has good parking facilities.We were pleasantly surprised that the price included a free dinner on the first night.I only have one regret and that is that we had not booked a longer stay.However we shall definitely return and probably stay for a month.

    Recommended hotel

    from

    We are a family of four and stayed here in early July 2005 for two nights. We shared a large, comfortable room that was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was fine and the evening meal (part of the deal) was more than adequate, with an excellent choice of main course, etc. Staff were all really friendly and went out of their way to help. The one downside for us was the swimming pool, located in the adjacent health club; give this pool a miss, no matter how tempted you are! When we visited, it was filthy; a regular club member told us it was always like that, but maybe she just didn't like hotel guests sharing the facilities! All in all, highly recommended for its great location, near to Alton Towers, etc, and shop around for some great multi-night deals!

    Basic hotel

    from

    Our family stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in June 2004. This is an average hotel. This was a newer hotel and we chose it for the pool and that we could get a room with 2 double beds. one for my husband and myself and one for our 13 year old daughter. We were not told when we booked this hotel that the pool is located in a health club, which is downstairs, and does not allow children after 7:00 pm. Luckily there was not very many people staying during the week and we were allowed to swim after 7:00 pm. The other misleading statement when you book on-line was that they had Laundry facilities available. They would send your laundry out for a fee. you could not do them yourself. The rooms were comfortable and the location was close to a McDonald's. The breakfast buffet had nice selections, with hot items. This place was close to the highways, which meant it was easy for us to get to the potteries.
