    This is a very nice hotel; clean, modern and a few thoughtful touches here and there makes it a very pleasant place to stay. Love the pool and gym. The location is perfect; close to the train station and very central. Staff are great.

    Having had a full day yesterday in London we both decided to stay put today and relax. Joanne slept in until 10:00 a.m. and Rhe napped on and off throughout the day.

    We repacked suitcases and checked the weight of each; Joanne is over so Rhe will be taking some of the overflow. What a team!

    We walked around the very extensive …

    Well, we were up and out the door nice and early and on the train to Paddington for 9:15 am. It's a short half-hour or so into Paddington Station and then on to the tube for a few stops to Westminster. Much easier than driving!

    We got a day pass for the Hop On Hop Off bus and we did just that. Getting off a few times to walk around a few …

    ... a lot of tying up loose ends, however that was the side story to an entertaining final day with my team. After knowledge sharing all morning and eating pizza all lunch with the project, the afternoon was a rush to back up data before my laptop was shredded forever, never to **** off a worker with its ****** response times and broken keyboard again (Memo to Microsoft - sort Windows out, you might have a virtual monopoly but it really is a crock of ****). This was ...

    ... but this turmeric infused fish-dish with dill and spring onions looks so beautiful, I might have to try the real thing so I can recreate a flavour packed vegetarian version. Maybe Luke will too, who knows. He's not sure he'll be able to keep meat and fish down, being a lifelong vegetarian.

    I'm especially on the lookout for:
    Seaweed dishes
    Fresh tofu dishes
    Green tea
    Vietnamese coffee
    Beans and bean pastes

    A travel blog entry by daveclarke6 on Aug 20, 2013

    ... we were positive about some of our stays is that there they got the customer service right: they brought what was asked for with acceptable delays. Some of the other places we stayed in seemed to leave a lot to be desired as far as customer service: extremely long delays for food (over an hour was not uncommon), cold food, presenting food that was not as described, and, in one case, telling blatant lies to try to avoid having to put themselves out at ...
