... Park and over the spectacular Llanberis Pass. We made a couple of stops for pictures. At one of these stops, a couple of sheep were grazing right close to the parking lot. This area mines slate, so it's really rocky. The rocks are quite shiny, and some of them are marbled with quartz. At the edge of this park is another touristy town, Betws-y-coed, which is quite pretty. I'd like to come back here for a ...
... propeller in the bins, and moored on what we assumed were visitor moorings. We had an afternoon snooze, and later on James tried to go for a walk, but he could not get out of the secure mooring area, as the padlocks were not the usual CRT keys.
This was quite a noisy mooring due to the proximity of the M6.

... experiences and taught me so much, yes mostly about rubbish, but also about life. I would like to thank all those at veolia for their support and guidance, and giving me the opportunity in the first place. My family, my big crazy extended family, it hasn't always been easy but the last couple of years things have smoothed out and I now feel closer to them than ever before. Without getting too cliche I would like to thank my parents for allowing me ...
We began the day with a beautiful breakfast in a lovely breakfast room where we watched a squirrel in the garden. After breakfast we had a walk around the garden and woodland at the back of the hotel. Heading off to Llangollen, we drove through the town of "Trevor"! And passed The "Aussie Rooster" which we think was perhaps an inn. On losing Leonie and Glenn again, we decided to listen to our Navman as we were gaining a general respect for him. Llangollen is a gorgeous little ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Hotel Stoke Hanley
This was our second time at this hotel. We just stayed for one night.
I used to live near the Quality Hotel and went there for a wedding once when it was called The Grand. The hotel was much nicer then. During my more recent stay I found the rooms to be really old fashioned all dark and dingey, with a horably decorated brown tiled bathroom, like an old school corridoor, there was also a grubby stained valance on the bed, and the trouser press could have been an antic. The room reminded me of an old fashioned carriage on a steam train. The bath taps did not work at all and after complaining we were moved to another room which was nicer and better with a much more modern and newly decorated bath room. The bed was quite comfy but we were in a room next to a bunch of young males who partied until early morning making a disbance, I rang down to reception to complain and the problem was dealt with. The hotel was quite deceptive as the corridoors and reception and even the outside view of the hotel are almost stunning but the rooms are a different matter they seem to have been neglected. All in all I was disappointed with the hotel for the price we had paid. If it had been alot cheaper by around £30 then it would have been ok. The problems we had were efficently dealt with but for the price it was, there should have been no problems to begin with.
Stayed here for a visit to Alton Towers as the usual hotel I go to was full. What a mistake. Hotel is in run down area of town, lapdancing bar next door. First room we were given was tiny, no view, broken bed, broken wardrobe, and a staircase above us meant constant noise. I complained and we were moved to a family room.
Stayed 4 nights, breakfast inedible had been left out on the servers to dry up and fester, sausages uncooked in the middle asked for fresh eggs and waited 40 mins to be presented with eggs that had uncooked white (all 6 of them as there were 3 of us), waited another 10 mins after sending them back and managed to get one cooked and one still with an uncooked white.
We stayed at the Quality Hotel for 3 nights on 8th April 2005, our party comprised of 2 adults and 3 children taking the DB&B option with the main purpose of the visit to include a trip to Alton Towers.
Having booked our wedding there for 11/09/04 we were greated with numerous problems throughout the day. 1st the wrong date on the menu cards, not enough drinks available considering they had all been paid for and dirty drinks glasses for the wedding breakfast. The following morning when we went to collect things like the wedding cake, they had thrown all the cake boxes away (there were 3 tiers). Then we found out that all of the remaining cut fruit cake had been thrown away and the sponge cake all cut up but never even put out for the guests! If you want to enjoy your wedding and take your cake and leftovers for people who were not there, then don't go to the Quality! They don't even seem interested in putting things right!
Noisy, Shabby, Strippers next door!!!
We stayed there 1 night prior to going to Alton Towers with child aged 10. Hotel is very central and surrounded by nightclubs. Our room on 1st floor overlooked 'gentlemans club' and strippers used hotel car park for their cars although the hotel provided bouncers to try and prevent this. Also overlooked very late night burger bar. Fighting, screaming, shouting until all hours. We had no sleep. Passing traffic noise amplified: it was very loud- in our room the secondary double glazing did not close fully.
Food is good but evening meal was cold and had to be sent back. Breakfast good. Rooms shabby.
This hotel is not suitable for children or for anyone who wants any sleep!!!
A warm welcome awaits you at the Quality Hotel
Just had a fabulous weekend at the Quality Hotel Stoke-on-Trent.What a surprise to have a clubroom complete with spa bath as standard on a weekend deal! The staff are exceptionally friendly and efficient, especially in the restaurant. The food was excellent,fresh,hot and plentiful. Even though a refurbishment is going on it was hidden well and I didn't feel I was on a building site! Congratulations to all at the hotel for making my birthday weekend do special.
Stayed one night in March 2004, Hotel undergoing extensive refurbishment at this time. Room was in an annex block, comfortable enough, but room smelled strongly of stale smoke and windows wouldn't open. Leisure facilities were good and staff friendly. Decent breakfast but rather overpriced for a three star hotel but then someone has to pay for the redecoration I suppose. Ideally placed for the City Centre which has loads of eating houses.
Friendly welcome and lots to do
W enjoyed the Health Club in the hotel, and we enjoyed a relaxing weekend visiting the wonderful tourist attractions locally associated with the world famous chinaware produced in the area. The restaurant harks back to a bygone age setting, with hanging chandaliers,drapes, and good wholesome, english food. We particularly commend the staff for welcoming us as though we were long lost friends.The hotel itself is over 150 years old, and the bedrooms are not the most modern we've stayed in , but they are comfortable,and clean, and to be fair there was some refurbishment work going on whilst we were there. We can't wait to go back for our next anniversary .thank you for a lovely weekend.
