... And finally, we stopped at a really pretty town called Llangollen. It's situated on the river Dee that is quite rapid, and is popular for rafting. It's color reminds me of the Taquahmenon Falls in the UP. This town is known for its lovespoons. They are carved out of wood in designs that tell a women what a man carrying the spoon promises a potential wife and things like how many children he wants. ...
The streets signs are impossible to see, so it has been fun navigating around the millions of tiny, narrow streets! But everyone has been really helpful and friendly.
The weather at the game was surprisingly warm. All the local at the game yesterday looked like they were going to expire in the heat! (I reckon it was about 24 deg).
This morning started with a 6:30 taxi ride to to the Ulyses IRISH FERRY in Dublin. We boarded after going security with our luggage and went up to the Club where we had free snacks for our 3 hour voyage to Holy Rod in Wales. I didn't get sea sick but Iayed down most of the trip. As you am see from pics it was not at all crowded. We landed about 11:30 and a bus drove us to the station to get a train to Liverpool . We only had to wait about 15 min. We rode it about a hour ...

Liverpool was always going to be a quick visit and that it was, in and out in around 27hrs but very much enjoyed in that short period of time!
Highlight was the night out if im honest but the couple of sights I did see during the day were very cool and the 'Bombed out Church' in particular is definitely not something I will get to see anywhere else, it was a reminder of just how frightening it must have been back in the days of the war!
The big surprise was the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Mill Hotel Chester
I've not long come back from staying @ the Mill! This Hotel is a great little gem, kind of out of the way from public eye, but when u find it, neva lose it! Originally i was sceptical when entering the Hotel. Its not 'attractive' from the outside, and when u first walk in, the decor is kind of dated. This is something you have to look beyond, because the rest of the hotel is sublime.
Loved the whole place
We have just spent a long weekend at the Mill Hotel and it was fantastic.
The hotel is beautifully and tastefully rennovted mill mixed with new build across the canal - really well done.
The rooms were nicely decorated and had all facilities and were extremely comfortable.
The quality of the service was outstandng and the food excellent - absolutely 5 star - whilst also having the bonus of the staff being so welcoming, friendly and willing to go the extra mile the whole time. We had a truly wonderful stay - can recommend to everyone - and have already booked to go back ourselves!!
Have just spent a wonderful weekend at The Mill Hotel & Spa with my mum and mother-in-law.
First impression on arrival was that the hotel was somewhat gloomy. They could do with more natural light, and lighter furnishings. There are 4 grades of room
Stayed for a long weekend at the mill in the standard rooms. Found directions and parking very easy with plenty of spaces.
A nice idea, a canalside location and a converted warehouse, but some serious problems.
I stayed here on business so had little choice in where I stayed. it was a nice change from the plastic hotels I have often stayed in.
I stayed at this hotel for just 01 night on 31st March 2006. We paid £88 for 2 in a double room, which reservations stated was refurbished. If you're into "George and Mildred" 60's/70's style fabrics and furnishings then you're in for a treat ! The room was very run down, the bathroom was a tad worse, mulberry pink! lots of that gummy sealer everywhere around the bathroom mirror, the tiling, the bath, the toilet, very, very disappointing. When you first walk into the hotel there is a bar right next to reception, this is very, very smoky and very busy and everywhere stinks, if you have the chance to upgrade to an executive room in the new block, I'd do it right away! as there is lots of noise at night, I never got much sleep through other gusest running around the hotel at all hours creating noise and chaos. May want to choose another hotel! The only thing positive I can say is that the sheets were clean and the location was good, only a short walk to the city centre.
Not up to scratch
We stayed one night in October 2005 and were not very impressed. The room and bathroom were small, with a low ceiling. The electronic room key didn't work and had to be replaced twice. The only evening meal available was at a small cafe with a very limited and uninteresting menu. There is nowhere else to eat close by. The reception area reeks of cigarette smoke. The canal smells a little, but is not evident from the room unless you open the window. Breakfast was average.
i found everything in the hotel superb. the rooms were reasonably priced and very comfortable. absolutely fabulous health club with modern equipment and the food was exceptional for the price! on arrival the lift was out of order and luckily one of the chefs 'big jon', a little unprofessional but very friendly, helped us with our luggage to our room.
