So, 18,198 miles later our trip is complete and we are home!
The past 3 and a half weeks have gone so fast. Both had a fantastic time and did not want to come home. We have seen some amazing sights ranging from the hustle and bustle of cities such as Las ...

51. Things are spelled slightly different sometimes. 'S' and 'Z' are switched about a lot in words. For instance, 'industrialization' is the US way to spell it, but in England it's spelled 'industrialisation'

... full, we were sitting in different seats at the back of the plane.I thought it was the worst of the flights home, coming into Manchester,airport, we seemed to,swinging quite a lot at the back of the plane and I was very glad when we landed safely!!!! To be fair, it was Wednesday, storm day and the wind was pretty strong,apparently it was due to get worse in the afternoon!!!!! We were met by "john" our ...
... way to Chester we see a wind farm in the sea at Colwyn Bay. We're back in England, in Cheshire and the pretty walled city of Chester. I have so wanted to see Chester and Roman amphitheatre etc but it is raining and cold and we can't risk going on the walk with our tour manager to see the sights of Chester. So disappointing. We arrive at the Queen Hotel ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Chester South
I must explain the offer firstly, we were offered a deluxe room (executive) for half the rack price and next night free.
The dirtiest Holiday Inn I have every stayed in.
Check with Chester Environmental Health re: the bed bug infestation has received the all clear before you stay.
Make sure you are not put into room 236, has mice try to get in bed with you.
No sign of a senior manager at weekends who you can assist with genuine grievances.
The General Manager works Monday to Friday only, so expect Faulty Towers at it's worst.
Although I write that I stayed here in February 2006, this isn't quite true.
Good hotel for those on a budget
We booked this hotel for a cheep and cheerful break to Chester for Valentines, and weren't disappointed. On arrival there had been a problem with room allocations but this was rectified immediatley and we were given a free upgrade to an executive room which was really nice, contemporary decoration with the most powerful shower in the world!
I booked the hotel for its price and the fact it had a pool etc, which I have to say was a bit of a let down - the water was a bit cold and there were lots of children...saunas were single sex, and the jacuzzi was very busy! I think it would be better in summer and maybe at a different time of day.
The hotel is about 2m from Chester, only £4 in a taxi which isnt bad.
I would go back.
Hideous - avoid
Hideous hotel. Staff dirty, scruffy and didn't want to be there. Very embarrasing as trying to impress new boss. Needs a good clean. Avoid.
Good for budget travellers
What to say about this hotel? It is difficult really, because on one side the hotel is old, looks like an assemblage of mobile homes and needs a good clean (so do the sheets, be aware) but on the other side the staff are lovely, it is cheap, the health club is fab and the breakfast is very good. In addition there is a 'park & ride' service just outside the hotel so you can go to town easily, no car park hassle.
So in the end, I think, yes, I would stay there again if I went to Chester.
am so glad we decided not to stay the night
the food was expensive and so were the drinks at the bar
place was dirty and smelt funny
Stayed here for two nights in August but dont think well be staying again.Room was not as clean as it could have been-peanuts and empty bottle top on floor when we arrived.Booked a family room,which was very hot even with fan on and windows open.Our bed was ok but the kids had a sofa bed with pull out mattress underneath-fine for the nine year old but not the fourteen year old!Decided not to eat in restaurant in evening-good choice- as when we arrived for breakfast dining room was dirty with food on floor and could have done with a good clean everywhere! but food was ok although better choice on second morning.Service was slow,I had to chase waitress for tea/coffee by which time we were half way through our meal.Overall we felt that staff couldnt really be bothered and the whole place could do with a good clean.
Very good hotel
We stayed 2 days at this hotel in August 2004. The rooms are very clean, staff friendly and accommodating. Large indoor pool, and fitness center, which is great for families. We had the Bed and Breakfast package, and it was great. Food good, and dining room very clean. Short car ride to Town, and bus stop at front of hotel which goes to town. Would definitely stay here again.
Worst experience with a hotel in UK
Loss laundry/dry clean items is not uncommon in this hotel. Almost every evening, your prime time TV program will be interrupted with messages from the front desk asking for misplaced laundry, asking guest to own up if they pick up extra laundry. Worse of all, there are cases of loss of the WHOLE DAY'S laundry sent by all guests!
According to the clause on the laundry form, guests are supposed to be compensated up to 10 times the laundry value, but the duty manager never honours that, and guests just have to bare the loss!
