... is chicken korma. When she visited me in Ottawa last year, she proved to have an adventurous little palate by dipping her onion ring in the hot sauce. That would have killed me. She proceeded to taunt me throughout our Indian dinner: "I'm going to out-spice you, Auntie Audrey!" Kid, you need to aim higher in life. Everyone can out-spice me. Meredith has also picked up her father's unfortunate habit of torturing me with wool. ...

Came home and dried off and went for lunch to the Waggon & Horses in Hertfordshire - a Coaching Inn established in 1417 - great pub, great food, great Jazz band and a some really nice pints of Ale. Off into the country today for a pub lunch and a lot of sightseeing. Stroll round London tomorrow and Tuesday and off. To Shropshire on Wednesday. No jet lag so we are doing ...
... merrily filed her nails during audiobook listenings, dusting me in fine white nail snow; we've stood in line to brush our teeth (knocking your head against something during this act is just part of the package) and glared at people with hysterically screaming toddlers. See? Just like home. For all other young trainees and trainers out there, we've even made a list of conductors ranking in friendliness: Germans (again - who would have thought, right?!)

... them I was safe and I myself couldn't even imagine what they must've been going through. Anyways, 10 hours on the bus! I couldn't sleep all night and at about 3am we had to get off the bus and onto the Ferry to cross the English Channel. This is where things get weird. So I'm on this Ferry and Suvi is sleeping so I just sit there starring blankly into space. And there's this lady hovering over Suvi so I carefully watch her stuff. Then I make eye contact with this ...
We headed to Stonehenge. The drive itself was gorgeous! We had been in Thailand previous to this and the landscape is so thick and lush with tropical plants. This was a different kind of terrain but was just as green and lush as the jungles we have visited. There were fields of golden flowers and the grounds looked like a patchwork quilt of different colors of green.
When we arrived at Stonehenge, we were both amazed. It was amazing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Glendale Hyde Park Hotel London
This hotel is the worst I have ever stayed in. I saw the hotel on the internet and the read up sounded fantastic. Well, we should have just walked out and demanded a refund.
Going to London with my girlfriend and mother, we wanted one cheap single room and one double room. We found this hotel and I booked it. It was only on the day on arrival I found all the bad reviews while looking for the address. Scared to hell about it, I didn't say anything to mom nor to my girl, it would break them down... ;)
I did not know about this website... everything that has been said in other reviews is absolutely true! It is small, the whole hotel cannot be 12 feet wide...dirty, but so dimly lit you might not see it, dated... furniture and bedding from the 60's (but not in a good way) and nothing worked. I honestly did not stay long enough to take off my shoes, because I wouldn't take off my shoes to put them on the filthy rug. I too, did not have room for my suitcase. The staff did not speak English well, although this might be a trick to keep people's money...you must pay in advance, and like the others, you will have no satisfaction in trying to get it back. I have been searching the web to find out how to report this hotel to the Englsih version of the US Better Business Bureau. I would not stay in this place if it was for free. Unless you see this place in person you cannot imagine a place like this exists. I am sorry if you are like me and finding this out after you have stayed there. If you are considering it, please find someplace else.
Well it is a budget hotel, what do you expect?
look, it is a budget hotel, not the ritz, what do you want for £30?
room was clean, beds were comfy, tv in room was new and phone worked ok. yeah rooms are small, but if all you need is a bed for the night, in easy distance of Hyde park, and tube, no problem at all.
continental breakfast was served in reception, and a bit cramped, but we were going for bacon butties at cafe round corner, which was open on sunday morning at 7.00, so didnt care.
take your choice, £30 each or £ 100 each, personally, i prefer to have the beer money in my pocket.
I would like to inform the responsible party who has agreed to list the Glendale Hyde Park on your website. I recently visited England and happened to stay at this hotel. Coming from overseas, I assumed that the description of the hotel was reliable. I was mistaken! The room was totally misrepresented. I had booked a family room with two double beds, to accommodate up to four people. The room had two twin beds and the tea maker had bacteria growing in it, not to mention that there was no overhead lighting in the room. The bulb fixture was empty. I immediately went down to the concierge and demanded my money back. He stated that he had no authorization to do so. I insisted on talking to the manager, who after a rather lengthy and discourteous conversation over the phone, promised that she would return my money the next day in full. Not only did she not show up to work the next day, but the staff at the hotel claimed to know nothing about the agreement that had been made last night. The concierge that had been present when the arrangements to return the money had been made, claimed to know nothing about the incident. I was in shock and waited and waited for some resolution. Finally the concierge, who claimed to not know how to do a refund agreed to do one and only returned a portion of my money. I regret having stayed there. Not only was it a bad reflection on the English customer service, but an exercise in how to take advantage of foreigners traveling in a new land.
Ok so the hotel isn't the best of the best, but for one of the cheapest room rates in London, it certainly beat what I was expecting!
We have had the misfortune to visit the above hotel this weekend. We
The Glendon Hyde Park Hotel in London was the worst hotel we have ever been to. If you are interested in any details, please connect to our homepage
Terrible! It couldn't be worse! Me and my boy friend had a double room, and it was about the same size as the double bed. We had problems finding a suitable place for our suitcase, and that shouldn't be necessary! The bathroom was so small that when using the toilet we had to leave the door open. We changed room the next day, but it didn't become that much better, really. The bathroom had the same size, it wasn't possible to open the window and the floor was constantly wet due to leakage (?) from the radiator. However, it got even worse: at the day of departure a member of staff unlocked our door to let a new guest in, and we hadn't even checked out! He apologised, saying that he thought we had left... This hotel doesn't even deserve one yellow dot, it should have been possible to give it no yellow dots! You're warned..!
Never trust a guide book. Despite high marks in a popular guide, my stay in this hole was nothing pleasant. No lift, tiny very steep stairs that promise to get you neck broken. The room made a hall closet look spacious. A small single bed and press board shelf unit that was the combination closet/vanity/desk slammed into a room that could hold nothing more. The single window was blocked by the shelf unit so it couldn't be opened more than a 4 inch crack, yet it couldn't be closed either. So the room was sweltering during the day and freezing at night. The bathroom was 2 foot square shower and the toilet was in a 2 foot square space that put the wall where your knees should be and your chin in the sink. The "free internet access" was a computer on a landing of the stairs, was limited to 30 minutes, but didn't work anyway, and according to the desk clerk, wasn't going to be fixed anytime soon. The phones were restricted so you could only place calls through the hotels very expensive carrier, when the phones worked, and calling cards were rejected. All incoming calls to me were refused to be put through even though they operator confirmed that I was there. I know know I'm going to heaven, because I've been to hell.
