... After a 13hr flight we arrive at Gatwick Airport, pick up our PRIORITY luggage (lucky luggage) for our onward journey to York; not bad timing as we landed at Gatwick at 7am and were at home dead on 11am.

Still eating 3 meals a day, restricted carbohydrate. No problems with wanting to particularly eat between meals, or after our evening meal in the evening.

Making coconut flour/oil bread and also almond butter bread as required, certainly get through a lot of eggs when I make 2 x coconut; 1 x almond = 18-19 eggs.

So typical day is:
Breakfast: one piece of coconut bread ...

Landing in good old blighty

... home in what appeared to be no time at all, at about 1030, oblivious to our surroundings. We were both in a sort off Jet lagged trance....It was wonderful to see our garden bursting open it's Spring flowering bulbs, it felt sort of weird though that we had missed a winter, going straight from autumn into spring.....When we entered the house we were pleasantly surprised to find that Debbie, Steven, Leanne, Jordan, Jess, Lucy and Chloe were all there to greet us. We ...

China travels

... a lot of European, neoclassical buildings in areas where the French, the Brits , Germans settled.
I also visited the famous Yuyuan Gardens and pavilions, which were created by the Governor of the region in the 16th century, during the Ming Dynasty. You reach them by walking through an enormous, bustling Chinese Market, very colourful and noisy, with lots of traditional style Tea houses. The gardens, mainly large rocks and trees and shrubs, ...

The Great Ending

A travel blog entry by gapyearjamie

This was it. The end of our journey. Exhausted, we collapsed in the Sheffield Tap pub, waiting the 18:14 northern rail service home. It seems quite funny that our adventure, which took us around some of the worlds greatest landmarks, started and finished on a northern rail train. As we bid our farewells, we knew we would never forget this epic trip, and it was a truly great beginning to my gap year adventures. It was at that point that I realized I had lost my sunglasses. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Metropole Hotel (The Met) Leeds

    Overpriced and undermaintained

    from

    Four stars? For what? Certainly not the room. My door looked like someone had kicked it - a big foot-sized broken dent! And the cleaners clearly don't make any effort beyond tidying - the carpet was in dire need of cleaning, or even replacement, there was thick dust on everything higher than about 5 feet from the ground. The TV set was cheap as anything, and the quality of picture and range of channels was weak to say the least.

    The only good thing I can say is that the room service was quick and efficient, and the food was delicious.

    My advice - don't waste your money. You'd probably enjoy a Travelodge more.

    Reasonable

    from

    In Leeds for a conference at the Queens Hotel, but couldn't get a room there, so chose the Metropole as a friend had already booked there.

    Awful.

    from

    Totally unacceptable standard for a 4* hotel and a travesty given the beautiful architecture of the building. Our room (408), was shabby to the point of being dirty; the room walls and carpet grubby, the window frame rotting and the blanket on the bed had stains all over it, including vomit. When we asked for a different blanket we were informed by concierge that no housekeeping was available on saturday nights and they didn't know where the spares were kept themselves. The bathroom was outdated but clean however, the door didn't close to and toilet bowl was glued together. A fire alarm at 1am completed our stay.

    Strangely enough, we will not be returning in a hurry.

    Unpleaseant stay

    from

    I found my room, although it was a smoking room very unpleasant. There were burn holes in the bedding, the nets were falling down and I was not impressed with the Bathroom.

    I also waited 45 minutes for food ordered at the bar and the prices for bar food were ridiculous

    Seen better days

    from

    Just returned from a 3-night stay. Agree totally with "OK, not great" verdict. I paid 75 a night including breakfast but the rack rate was 110 without! At that price it would be a rip-off. The place was grand once but is very faded now: it needs considerable refurbishment. But the room was clean and the bed was comfortable (the linen seemd new, not just clean). The bathroom, too, was fine. The service was efficient and friendly and the breakfast was fine. No complaints - but even at 75 it's no bargain.

    OK but not great

    from

    Stayed at the Metropole again this year having patronized the hotel since I was a student in Leeds in the sixties. Great old Victorian edifice with magnificent terracotta moldings. Hotel has been slipping in standards of late - now operated by Le Meridien - maybe the slide will stop. Our room large, with comfortable beds and clean bedding but otherwise a bit threadbare. Large dated bathroom was spotless and everything worked. Our friend's room had good beds and bedding but smelled musty. Tiny creaky elevator is unacceptable for a hotel of this stature and size. Old style grand staircase is less harrowing. Lobby is pleasant. Former grand bar now relocated to the rear, no longer grand but OK. Breakfast is overpriced. Limited parking on first come basis - don't count on it. Desk staff bemused and somewhat amateurish but friendly and eager to please. Excellent location. If you get a good rate (esp. weekend) and one of the larger better rooms (we did) you may be pleased (we were). If you pay the rack rate or get a poorer room, you will not.

    Disgrace

    from

    Arrived at hotel and departed some 20minutes later. The hotel was so old and dirty with a musty smell all round. The bedroom were a disgrace, the floor boards creeked, the wallpaper was peeling off and burnt by the televison. The bed sheets were old and dirty. I could go on all day on how dissappointing this hotel is. However a good point is that 200m up the road is the PARK PLAZA HOTEL ! FANTASTIC HOTEL. Thats were we moved too.

    Very nice hotel, gracious and relaxing

    from

    We recently stayed in the Metropole Hotel in Leeds for a weekend break. The Hotel was very gracious and had a stylish lounge area where my husband could sit and read the papers whilst daughter and myself shopped in those lovely emporiums of style for which Leeds is famous, Harvey Nicks etc. The bathroom was wonderful and the service discreet but attentive. We will be back again soon! Highly recommended - near station and within walking distance of shopping areas.

    Memorable Wedding Breakfast

    from

    My husband and I would like to tell you what a wonderful wedding party we had for our daughter and new son-in-law on Saturday 7th September at the Hotel Metropole, Leeds. Many guests stayed overnight including ourselves (some stayed two nights) and were delighted with their rooms. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, all very friendly and courteous. Particular words of appreciation for the Banqueting Manager Mr Harold Brown for his highly professional and committed contribution to the success of the day, and to his colleague Adele who handled all the long term arrangements.The Edwardian ambiance of the hotel added greatly to the occasion. The food was excellent and the newly-weds thoroughly enjoyed their stay in the honeymoon suite, particularly the jacuzzi!
