Arriving at the airport in HCMC we are amazed to find ourselves being checked in by one of the girls we met on our snorkelling tour on Phu Quoc island. She gives us a huge smile when she sees us and gestures to her colleague who was also on the tour who gives us a big smile and wave.

... translated to the right side of the altar. The crypt of the present parish church remains a focus for veneration of Cedd. Hisbrother St. Chad took his place as abbot.
Today, when you enter the church, you see a steep set of stairs leading to a Saxon Crypt.
It was fascinating to walk around the lower level and think of how steeped it was in history. What's so great is it is still used today.
... reaching the earth from the cloud and both Geoff and I were concerned it would head our way. Within five minutes or so, it was above us and started pelting us with good sized hail stones. On the moorland where we were, there was no shelter so we had to slog through it, covering our faces as the hail hit. I couldn't believe how much they hurt when they hit our faces! It was all over in about 15 minutes. ...
Sunday 23rd. Over Africa. We're on the plane now heading home, Air France this time not KL-bloody-M, so I'm full of Cahmpagne, Cognac and Camembert, feeling mellow. Robbie's watching The Great Gatsby, and I've just been listening to Led Zep on the in flight entertainment facilities. This morning the howling wind still raged across Camps Bay. The Swiss landlady at the B&B said it's quite ...

Finally we met up with John again for dinner to close out the day. John had recommended an Italian restaurant near the Minster which ended up being just perfect for tonight.
We will be back on the road a bit tomorrow for our final day with John.

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn York
I stayed in this hotel with my wife and two little girls (age 5 & 3) just for the one night. It was booked on the 'net for £89 B&B for all of us. The hotel is a bit garish but certainly easy to spot! When we booked in the girls were given a rucksack each containing crayons, books, stickers and a t-shirt. Yes, the bathroom was small but the family bedroom was big enough for us 4 with the large double sofa bed made up on arrival. Who stays in their bathroom anyway??? Its a base to explore York from. It's an easy bus ride into town. Parking in York costs a fortune. We ate evening meal at the fox & roman over the road and we were disapointed. Poor kids menu and service a bit slow. We should have eaten in the restaurant in the hotel if the breakfast was anyhting to go by! Absolutely top-notch with every option available no matter what your diet. Fruit, breads, fry-ups etc etc. All hot and fresh. When we checked out they gave the girls a "holiday inn traveller" rog doll each. Smiley kids = happy parents. We would stay again and were so impressed we immediately booked the Holiday Inn Chester West for Easter.
I like nice hotels with good service and this one isnt one of those... i know people put comments like this on for silly reasons but believe me i would not waste my money on this hotel. I experienced 4 of their hotel rooms the best being on the executive floor (3rd) the others were looking like the days when it was a forte posthouse as it had not had a proper refurb in over 10 years. The bathrooms were old, small and not up to my clean standards. The bedrooms had furniture in that was broken (in 2 of the rooms) I telephoned reception after room 3 and was greeted with "you will have to pay more" i replied i dont think i have to pay for a decent room as i just have at check in " eventually i got room 4 exec i would stayin one of these. Ate in lounge bar staff are very untrained. My kids asked for a starter it came with chips i pointed this out and the waiter replied starters come with chips... funny that not in any restaurants i have eaten at... do yourself a favour stay elsewhere its not worth the hassle...
Holiday Inn "Style"
As platinum club members in the Holiday Inn program, we were greeted at this Holiday Inn with a nice fruit basket, with a mini bottle of wine, and a bottle of water. There were three of us in the room, and we were crowded to the point of being uncomfortable. We were told that we had an upgraded room.. The bathroom was so small, you had to walk in past the toilet to shut the door. Also, no aircondtioning. And, no internet service. The hotel fire alarm malfunctioned, sending all guests into the steet at 6:00 AM, but othewise, quiet, Except for the 100 Harleys that showed up for the weekend, below our window, that we had to keep open so we could cool the room down.....
We stayed for one night in February 2005 at the Holiday Inn York and found it to be a good sized room, clean, a large comfortable bed, and a nice shower. The receptionists were helpful when checking in and out, and efficiently arranged a taxi for us into the town centre, which is not too far away.
Room was clean and tidy. Everything worked. Reservations staff were really friendly and carried out their work without any hassles to myself.
Good hotel. Rooms clean, good location, several pubs nearby and easy access to buses for travelling downtown York. Great fish and chip shop within walking distance, best we have ever had. It has a sign of a fish on the door with "& chips". You must try them. We had the breakfast included in our rate, breakfast was good, but felt more attention should be paid to cleanliness, as we encountered dirty plates on two occassions.
You could do better
How can a hotel manage to serve rotton fruit for breakfast, and I mean visibly rotten, two days running? I have photos to prove it. There was also a problem over billing. I had prepaid but they wanted to charge me again, luckily I had printed out all the details.
Otherwise it was very average. It is OK if you are driving but some way out of town if you are reliant on public transport (though a bus service is nearby).
We were at the front and soundproofing was not particularly good, especially when tour buses started up early in the morning.
I would not go back here again.
This hotel was clean, but we have had several problems with double billing from them. We would probably not stay here again because of that issue.
Most comfortable beds
Have stayed at this hotel twice over the last year. The last time was in December 2003. The service is excellent, the staff could not be more helpful and the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in. It is convenient for the city, has lots of parking and I would be happy to stay there again
