... and arriving at another nice looking beach it decided to go for a run was told a nice route round the inlet, ended up running through the bush and not being about to find my way out other than re tracing my steps, by the time I got back to the beach it was almost dark so decided to dive in!

So, here we are Manchester airport. Wales have lost to England in the rugby and as we watch the sun go down over terminal 3, the board says our BA flight to London Heathrow is delayed by 15mins.Then 30 mins. Then 50 mins. So worried about catching connecting ...
... energy requirements for the day.
Also been out most days litter collecting, plus one morning helping to plant some very small saplings along the bypass. Lots of bending, stretching and carrying heavy bags of litter around - much more energetic/tiring than you might expect when you go looking for old litter, far under prickly bushes and trees.
The stone I've lost appears to have gone of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa
Tolles Hotel, super Lage. Große Zimmer, tolles Bett! Erstklassiges, frisches Frühstück.
Me and 2 of my work colleagues have recently spent 2 nights in this not quite finished, but lovely hotel. We found the hotel without any hitch....I would recommend Google Earth route planner. The car park is a little mystery, but if you use a little geographic noggen you'll find it no bother. I have stayed in Manchester numerous times, but never in a hotel of this standard. We loved the sound system in the bathroom...listening to strictly come dancing on the loo....priceless! Also under sink lighting...WOW ideal for those middle of the night visits. Bedrooms very comfortable, but as many reveiwers have said "no drawers" there is however cubihole shelving in the sliding wardrobe, alternatively shove ya smalls on the floor of the wardrobe, not a problem.
Macdonald only average......
We spent the first weekend in December Christmas shopping in Manchester and stayed at this new Macdonalds hotel.
First impressions were a) they are still building it and b) what an unusual shape. Well the shape is odd because it was the old BT building we were told and yes it wasn't quite finished yet.
For a new flagship hotel it didn't feel quite right or that well thought out which might well have been because it wasn't purpose built. Considering it had only been open a few weeks it felt quite well used.
Pros: Friendly & efficient staff, modern rooms, close to shops and railway station, dinner was good, breakfast was forgetable
cons: Not great location, where's the restaurant?
OK.. Firstly, let's look at what was nice about this hotel..
Until we went for breakfast, this hotel would have rated a superb 5 out of 5. The room is one of the very best I've been in - spotlessly clean, large, well fitted (even an ipod speaker system) and a huge bathroom with both bath and separate shower.
Just returned from a weekend break with my friend at the Manchester Macdonald Hotel on London Road. It was excellent! The doorman Alan was friendly and helpful coming out to assist with our bags up the half dozen steps. We arrived at noon and our room was ready. It was on the third floor, with panoramic views of the city. The room was spotlessly clean, all mod cons including a huge walk-in shower and a full size bath; a wall mounted LCD tv in the bedroom with speakers into the bathroom. The beds are brand new (the hotel has only been open a few weeks). We had a bottle of champagne chilling in an ice bucket as this was an opening offer. As it was lunchtime we asked if the ice bucket could be replenished so we could drink the bubbly later and this was not a problem. The staff were exceptionally friendly and courtious. Only one grouse, there was a total lack of drawer space. There was not one drawer!
Stayed 2 nights here with my daughter and had a lovely time. Located a few minutes walk from Piccadilly station. The rooms are lovely and big and the bathrooms have a huge shower which is brilliant. Beds are king size and extremely comfortable.
This hotel opened on the 1st Oct 2007 we stayed in the hotel on the 4th and 5th with the builders still present. phase two of the hotel will add the spa and pool around the 1st Dec 07, so if your going for the spa wait until Dec 07.
Das Hotel hat am 1. Oktober 2007 aufgemacht und wir waren am 4. und 5. dort, zusammen mit vielen Handwerkern. In der Phase 2 wird das Hotel noch eine Spa und einen Pool bekommen, beides soll am 1. Dezember 2007 aufmachen. Also wenn Sie dort wegen der Spa hingehen, warten Sie bis zum 7. Dezember.
