We made it safe and sound. The flight was great and the taxi ride to the hotel was our first experience riding on the opposite side of the road. The highway signs said interesting things like 'welcome break ahead' and 'slow down now'. Our taxi driver had a thick accent but we could understand him. Our hotel is on an inner street not accessible by car so we were dropped off near ...
... paths in a similar direction to the day before. We didn't make the 55km goal for the day only hitting 40km as I wasn't feeling great in the afternoon and we decided to turn around rather than get stuck in the middle of nowhere! We made a good decision as I was still not feeling well enough the next day however after a day off from cycling and a train ride to Liverpool I am ready to get back on the bike :) Rodney, however, did ride Manchester ...
... 300 times before they made it big -the school that Paul and George attended together, which was right next to the university of arts that John was attending at the time. After the tour we had planned to visit the World Museum and the Maritime Museum but unfortunately there was a strike on and so they were all closed. Instead after a relaxed lunch we walked up to the Anglican cathedral. We made our way through the slightly creepy park/ cemetery that surrounding ...
Today we continued on from York to the home of the Beatles, Liverpool! Before making our way to the York train station we walked down the river and saw Clifford's tower and made some friends with the local Canadian geese. This tower was the setting of a very sad story. A group of Jews were chased by a mob and took shelter here until deciding to take their own lives instead of renouncing their faith. Once at the York train station we visited ...
... preserved of its type in Britain. It's just a big grassy hill how, but it must have been amazing, with long ranging views.
We drove through Shrewsbury where Charles Darwin was born, onto the Wroxeter Roman City. It housed five thousand citizens, but there is not much left now except the remains of the second century municipal baths. There is also a recreation of a Roman town house. It all covers a huge area and is ...

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!
