The Hideous Gresham Hotel 116 Sussex Gardens , London
I had the unfortunate experienc of staying at hotel for week during Thanksgiving in Novenber 03. The Gresham Hotel was terrible and the staff were rude and inconsiderate and most did not speak english. The bathroom was so small you could bareley move around. There was no closet space the satellite TV is a joke it had 3 channels and two of those were the same with lousy reception. We frequently had to ask for clean towels. The cleaning staff would turn the heat off in the room after they were done cleaning and when we would come back to the room it would be freezing and it would take a long time for the room to warm up again. The room size was tiny. Supposedly the rooms were recently remodeled. Whoever it was, should be shot. The beds were uncomfortable and the room was drafty. The hairdryer was in a desk drawer, from which it could not be moved and used in a convenient place like the bathroom.
The rug in the room was filthy. The coffe and tea service consisted of some no name tea bags and a plastic cup and a tiny spoon and plastic pot with a rusted heating element that appears they salvaged from the trash. The furniture was broken. The hotel was advertised as a superior tourist class hotel. The brochures for this hotel are deceptive. This hotel in reality is a no class budget hotel. I for one will never stay it this dump again and hope nobody else has the unfortunate experience of staying in this dump.
It was a terrible experienceand I will certainly avoid this hotel. It is rated 3 to 4 stars and should have been no more than 2 stars. The hotel is well located but quite dirty. Bathroom is like a box in which you can hardly move. Do not take much luggage: you can not hang your clothes!! Cleaning staff inadequate - we stayed there in December and found a newspaper dd October 16 under the bed!! - and most staff does not speak english. Drinks at the bar are out-of-proportion expensive.
Publicity pictures are impressive but REALITY IS NOT!!

Okay, even if I was in London several times, I just can't skip some of the sights. Nobody cares about London Eye or Buckingham Palace. There are much better places to go. If you go through Portobelo market in the end, I'm not kidding, you reach places without any turists. And that's when real London starts.
With friends we visited Cupcake original store, which I never tasted before and let's face it, muffins are still the best.
... only 3 D&T teacher training facilities left in England. Whilst this is a concern (similarly to Australia) it is not a surprise. You can learn more about the uni here:
I found out a few interesting things about the education of teachers in England today. Each year the government assesses the amount of teachers currently working in the system. Assesses the number due to retire and then generates a number of teachers that the universities needs ...
... a very fun and interesting process. We have a balcony that is already set up with a lot of clothes lines and racks. Our window in the bathroom conveniently opens up to the balcony so one of us would rinse and ring out, pass it through the window, and then the other would hang it up outside. The clothes took about a day and a half to dry completely but we felt very proud that we were able to do this! We will continue this process until it is too cold outside ...
... for the year. So we headed back to the hotel to clean up so we could go try the yummies. Justin took a quick swim in the pool while I cleaned up. Once we got back to the food it was very hard to decide, everything looked and smelled delicious. I'm back in the room now while the boys do a little exploring along Southbank. The Thames is starting to light up as the sun goes down. It is a beautiful breezy night in ...
... Needless to say we found one or two items that we had to have! From here we made our way to Kensington Palace which was the home of Queen Victoria and also Princess Diana and Prince Charles. The Palace was not in the same style nor extravagance to that of Buckingham Palace but was still worthwhile seeing. Following this we called into an Italian restaurant and had a tasty meal. Then it was back to the underground to navigate our way back to the hotel, successfully to our ...
