We then plan to head south through Malaysia to Indonesia. Then....we'll let you know!
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...
... the end of one stage of my trip, and the beginning of another. Tomorrow I am off to Durham, where I will move into residence and enjoy 12 days of freshers activities. This will certainly change the frequency and tone of my blog. Expect less frequent posts, thinner entries and probably a lot more pictures. What won't change, however, is my commitment to keeping you posted on all of the big events here in England.
Keep on reading Canada!

Historical Traveler Reviews The Newington Hotel York
What's the fuss!? We loved it!
Read other reviews. Bit of a mixed bag so decided to give the Newington a go. Had a truly wonderful time during our brief visit to Yorkshire last month. All the adverse comments on previous reports seem to have been addressed as we could find no fault. The Newington came up to expectation, clean, very friendly and well run. Nothing was too much trouble, even when we asked to leave our car in the car park all day when we had checked out! Dinner was included in our Low Season deal and we were not dissappointed. The food is of good quality, nicely presented and plenty of it. We can give the Newington the thumbs up, so don't be put off by what others say. We were delighted and will go back.
Staff were pleasent enough, however the room though serviced, had thick
Had a brilliant stay
Just returned from another stay at The Newington had a fantastic time.
Staff were very helpful, meals were excellent and rooms were very well maintained. I have stayed here on several occasions and have always enjoyed my stay, only wish I had stayed over a little longer as did not have enough time to visit all the attractions of York. I would recommend the Hotel to anybody I know.
We keep going back
We found The Newington a couple of years ago. Since our first stay we have become almost regular visiting up to three times a year. Have stayed in a number of different rooms. All are clean and well decorated. The food has a degree of traditional about it but is always pleasantly served and in our opinion value for money. No pretentions here! If you do not mind the ten minute walk into town then this is the ideal place to stay when visiting York.
Having spent one night in this hotel I pray all who read this listen.
Partner and I stayed there a few weeks ago. An overpriced, overrated, dump. There are many, many better, cheaper, value-for-money, cleaner, places to stay in the York area.
Dirty, small room. Bathroom facilities from Trainspotting. Pay fee to use the sauna. Pool not available. Unhelpful staff.
Made Fawlty Towers look like the Hilton, at double the price.
Great stay at The Newington
Had a wonderful stay at The Newington last week. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the standard of housekeeping immaculate. The food in the restaurant was wonderful and all the waiting staff smiling and most helpful. Can't wait to go back!
My wife and I booked for two nights at this Hotel, one was enough. On arrival we were directed to the annex (this was not disclosed on booking), our twin room was the dingiest I have seen. The ceiling paper was loose, no spoons to stir our coffee, one saucer and chewing gum stuck on the window sill. I immediately complained to the reception who offered us another room. This room was moderately better however the TV only had two channels and it was damaged, the handles on the units were loose and as it was getting late we reluctantly accepted the new room. The next morning we woke to find that our clothes which we had hung in the wardrobe were lying on the floor of the unit as the pole fixings had came away from the sides of the unit. So as not to be completely negative the bar area was quite nice as was the dining area. Grossly overpriced.
We were trully fooled into planning a weekend break at the Newington!! The place portrays itself as a luxury hotel, but is nothing but an ordinary (and seriously overpriced) B&B.
Weekend at the Newington
Our stay at the Newington was excellent. My husband and I could not fault any part of our stay. The swimming pool was warm and very inviting, our four poster bedroom was lovely also the jacuzzi. The food was brilliant, service friendly, nothing was too much trouble.
