Just enough time to confirm tomorrow's flight and final pack of our bags to go home. Dinner at Trollops was a great time for us to get together for our final dinner. Dessert was wonderful, mixed berries in whipped cream with small pieces of meringue!! Again, this group of women were a delight to travel with!!

... and have fish burgers while Myna birds hop about looking for scraps. Then it's on to Wainapanapa beach ! A black volcanic sand beach , with cool sea caves and big breaking waves. We hang out there for a bit, Mark goes swimming in the huge surf, we get our pic taken in the cave, then we walk along the coast a short distance to the Wainapanapa caves - freshwater plunge pools carved into rock. I'm not sure how capable I'd be of climbing OUT onto the rocks, plus ...
... has the express trains, the other the slow ones, so luckily we knew to go to the express station!) and just had time for a hamburger and small Glasgow salad, as the only available foodstuff on the concourse, before hopping on our train and trundling home. As we said, if you're going to have fast food anywhere, it had better be in Glasgow for true authenticity. You wouldn't eat Italian in Beijing, or Thai in Paris, so why would you eat healthy food in Glasgow?
... District. There are three beautiful, tranquil, and largely undeveloped lakes here. The area was home to poet William Wordsworth and writer Beatrix Potter. We visited Wordworth's grave in the yard of St. Oswald's Church. We had a delicious lunch at the Tea Room in the quaint village of Grasmere. The houses in this area are made of dry rock construction, meaning without mortar. Most of these homes also had slate roofs. Everywhere ...
... the only bit of snow we were to see in the UK, if only we could have stopped the van to throw some snow balls. We also got to stop and have a picture opportunity with a long haired Scottish cow. We also saw the spot where the latest James Bond movie was filmed which in fact was in a place called Sky Fall but the building used in the movie is located elsewhere. It's been a long day so it's time for bed and tomorrow we are off to ...

Where are your four stars???
when they say its the people that make the place, the city inn is starting at a loss. Some say that customer service is a calling, I have never seen so many people dial the wrong number. Reception staff that, that seem more hormonal than a menopausal woman with no hrt and cleaners that have a case of amnesia so bad that forget about the mould in the bathroom they cannot remember how to use a vacuum. Stay at the camponille its SO much better, we did after a night at the city inn
nice hotel very clean staff very friendly,rooms are not massive but have all you need.power shower is good.the breakfast is excellent
Friendly, clean with good food. Convenient for SECC
Good value for money
Bit out of town but 5 min walk to S.E.C.C. Rooms modern and clean with great power shower!! Good breakfast-lots of smoked salmon! Very helpful staff, first room allocated a bit smelly, but on complaining were immediately moved, not the Ritz or a Malmaison but shop about for a reduced rate and you will find it sensibly priced. Better than a tatty old grand hotel! Yes the room did seem a bit compact but had a 6ft bed!
Just dont try to walk into city center-its only £3 in a taxi! Parking could be more secure.
Good standard modern hotel & a Great location for concerts at the SECC
Great venue if you are going to a concert or event at the national Exhibition Centre. Right on the River Clyde and adjacent to the City Centre and West End. Modern comfortable hotel with good room facilities and an excellent restaurant offering real value for money. The scottich breakfast is cooked to order not the usual horrible buffet left under lights. Highly recommended.
Great Value Great Service
Modern, 'fresh' furnishings and decor. The room may have been a little small but it was lovely with air con, TV and Hi Fi and good standard decor. Nice bar and restaurant with decking terrace onto the River Clyde. We had an excellent dinner in the restaurant and best of all was the breakfast which - Oh happy day! - is cooked fresh and delivered to your table rather than the usual horrible buffet sat under the heatlamps which is sadly the morm at many hotels. We thought it great value.
Great View over the river
Great Views up the river, the rooms were a bit on the small side but all the facilities were new, modern and clean. Very friendly staff the hotel was only a 10 min walk into the town centre along the riverside which was very pleasent. I would definately go back and the breakfast was fantastic!!
No cats please
Mostly OK but don't bring your cat as you will be unable to swing it in your room
