Well I think everyone has finally adjuster to UK time with everyone reporting the best nights sleep of the tour, and now that we are fully adjusted, we are off home.... One last visit however, the Walkers Factory in Leicester, its the biggest chip (or Crisps as they call it over here in the UK, as a Chip here is 'fry'), looks like they will be processing about 365,000 MT of potatoes this season and it runs for 362 days per year. So that's 365,000 MT ...
... to south of Sheffield with not a scratch on the car, only a few frazzled moments. The views were pure England. Small streets. The Peak District is so gorgeous. Sheep. Hills. Valleys. Poor girls though. They were not feeling all that great to begin with from the flight - just tired - and both ended up throwing up. Thank the stars for ziploc bags. We wanted to have a day where we didn't have to anything ...

... have it, we managed to go back one further generation to William Siddons and Sarah Hurst, who we discovered were Maria Saxe Siddon's parents. Unfortunately we discovered two wedding records on 18 December 1793 and 8 January 1794 for the same names at St Mary's Church Nottingham and St Mary's Church Edwinstowe respectively (both within Nottinghamshire, however one in Nottingham and the second near Sherwood Forest). We also discovered ...
... I was crying having to say goodbye to Julia and Rob, they have been absolutely fantastic and I really want to come back here again, thinking maybe June/July next year, which means Melissa will be old enough to drink so she better come with me if dad & mum don't! Haha guess I have some more saving to do when I get back.. Managed to catch my train to London, but once I arrive I have to catch another 2 trains to get back to billies suburb then catch a taxi - so it'll be ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMercure Nottingham City Centre Hotel
We have had a very comfortable stay at the Mercure which is ideally situated in the Lace Market district of Nottingham. Staff were very friendly and mostly efficient. Admittedly we did opt for an upgrade to premium room but were very impressed with the size and comfort of the room.
The only disappointment we have with the hotel is the availabity of daytime / evening food. We had hoped to have a meal there but the menu is very sparce and the restaraunt was closed at lunch time. However there are lots of eateries in the locality so not too far to walk to find any nationality of cuisine you could ask for.
Certinly we would stay here again if we were in the area.

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Nottingham City Centre Hotel
Poor food, nice room
The room was very tidy, though it seemed to be situated above the kitchens as on both nights the room smelt strongly of cooking between about 7 and 10pm. The breakfast was terrible however. So much for the breakfast menu promising beans and 3 types of eggs. There were no beans and only 1 type of egg on both mornings. We also had to ask for plates as there were none available. When the plates arrived they were filthy! Not very impressed at all. The computer situated in the lobby for Internet access was a nice touch and came in quite handy.
I stayed at the Comfort Hotel May 8th-11th. The staff was extremely friendly. Room was neat and clean. Area was rather loud on Saturday and Sunday night due to music and people from the pubs.
Disappointed in room
The hotel is well located, friendly and adequate lobby and restaurant. The breakfast was good, in comparison to many. However, the room was a disappointment with worn/torn drapes, an overall shabby state and very uncomfortable beds.
Excellent Value for Money!
From one of the older generation who wanted to explore Nottingham rather than go clubbing!
Some friends of mine recommended this hotel to me and I took advantage of one of their Leisure Breaks - did a bit of mix and match on their website and took the Sunday night Dinner offer with the free wine (couldn't get in on the Saturday, suspect that's due to the clubbers) and I did the rest of the week on B&B. The menu was fairly limited, but excellently prepared and the free wine with the dinner was so good I ordered another bottle! It is in a great location to go foraging for evening meals (although we did have a second very nice dinner in the hotel) and there are some excellent restaurants nearby.
The staff are friendly and very helpful and the hotel website www.comfort-hotels-nottingham.com has some great links to various things to do plus it seems to be the only place I could find the Leisure Break Offer. The wife and I even had a go at ice skating (within walking distance), it was a hoot and we didn't break anything.
We love the Comfort and Quality chain, they always seem to get their prices right and are in great locations.
Thoroughly recommend a visit to Nottingham and the Comfort Hotel even if you are not a clubber!
Superb Hotel and Amenities
After talking to a friend who had stayed at the Comfort in Nottingham, who had done nothing but rave about the hotel and the nightlife, I decided to take the girlfriend for a weekend. We arrived to a very friendly and knowledgeable receptionist about the nightlife. The hotel and the staff were superb, food was good and bedroom was comfortable and the nightlife well what more can I say. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and I know I will be back very soon.
I stayed at The Comfort Hotel on the weekend of 19th/20th March, and paid just ?120 for two nights. The room was clean, comfortable and the staff were fantastic.I would reccomend this hotel to all as it is next to all the clubs and pubs and the bar was open late.
Im lovin it!
I stayed at the comfort hotel for 2 nights in febuary 2004, valentines week-end . we paid £100 for the weekend and the room was spacious and very clean but pleasantly furbished. I would recommend the hotel for people who like clubbin as it is right in the thrivin city. I will be comin back!!!!
Well worth the money
I stayed at the Comfort Inn in Nottingham for one night during Jan 2004. Despite the room being a little on the small side, I must say that my stay was very enjoyable. I paid just 70 GBP for a double room with dinner, bed and breakfast. The staff at the hotel were fantastic and extremely friendly. And contrary to what was said in one of the previous posts I found the food to be very good. Admitedly, the menu was quite limited, but the overall standard was extremely good for what was essentially a budget hotel. Also, my room was very clean, freshly decorated and comfortable.
I satyed at the Comfort Hotel for two nights in August, I found the food to be good traditional home cooked food and the standard of accommodation to be excellant for the price paid.
All staff at the hotel appeared to be new but very anxious to look after you and certainly were not lacking in customer care. This hotel was superbly postioned and all night life and shops were just a short walk away.
the rooms were comfortable and clean but the food was terrible. Our steaks were like leather and the chicken not much better,however the beef and ale pie was qite tasty.
