... so we would be losing people and gaining people along the way, just to make things even more confusing!

We arrived in Liverpool around 2pm, and headed off on a driving tour of the city with a local guide, who demonstrated the unique Liverpudlian accent to great effect. We got to see the largest cathedral in the UK, visit Penny Lane, and learn lots of other stuff about the home town of the Beatles. The weather then descended on us in true English style as we raced across ...

My plans!

... aim to complete as many laps as possible. It was great fun, and was even more hilarious when I kept driving on a yellow and then red light and t-boned a crashed driver on a blind corner. I got black flagged and had to go into the sin bin area. Gave the fellas a laugh. Next was the golf range which was brilliant. There were big targets to aim for and you had your own balls which were electronically chipped to your account. When you hit a target you got points ...

... I just wanted her to shut the hell up or we could have been chucked off the plane! nice one!!

After 13 hours, a slight hangover and desperate for a wee we landed in Kuala Lumpar Airport. This was probably where my love for Chinese people ended and where I vowed to myself never drink on a flight again!

Flying with Malaysian Airlines I was so excited for the food. There's me thinking chow mein and beef teriyaki is on the menu, ...

    Hyde park would me more comfortable

    from

    Really dirty place, it will ruin your stay in london, rooms freezing and bathroom filthy- AVOID!

    This place is horroble

    from

    This "hotel" was filthy, the service was terrible. The showers did not work. Don't stay there!

    Avoid like the plague!!

    from

    I so wish that I had found this site before I went to this dump. OK, it was cheap, but spend an extra tenner or so and get somewhere habitable.

    The room was freezing, the curtains were hanging off and inoperable; a hole in the ceiling was plugged with a yellowing old tissue; the complimentary tea and coffee was all very well but there was no kettle; in the bathroom you had the interesting 'benefit' of being able to 'do your business', run the bath and have a wash without having to move a muscle, if indeed it were possible (not enough room to swing a premature kitten).

    The 'double' bed was the very smallest they can legally call double, and the TV didn't work

    Royal Court was OK

    from

    After reading some reviews on the Royal Courts, I was a little worried about what accommodations I had locked us into. Anyway, the room was clean, a little worn and somewhat "tacky" but actually fit nicely into our budget. It is in a convenient safe location (near a tube station and close to Paddington Station for train travel. It is definitely not a 3 star place (by US standards) but if you want a studio arrangement it will do. Lots of restaurants nearby and loads of students, travelers, etc. You good do worse!

    Feral.

    from

    Purchased a room for the nite of a popular standby site. This site promised air conditioning...which turned out to be the least of my problems. The room was absolutely filthy, after pulling back the sheets there were a plethora of pubic hair lurking on the supposedly clean sheets! Dust everywhere, mold in the toilets, and the window wouldn't stay open, (not good in 35C+ heat!). After a horrible nite sleeping on top of the bed (too disgusting to get into), I would definately never advise anyone to stay there. Like the other reviewer, I am also very well travelled, and this would be lucky to be a one star!! I'm surprised I didn't get fleas.....I wouldn't let my dog stay there!!

    Was good at one time...

    from

    I've been to this hotel twice, once in May 2000 & again in November 2002 and there was a huge difference! In May 2000 it was clean, the staff was great, I said that I would definitely go back. I did, in Nov 2002 and it changed a great deal, the furniture was well worn, everything looked like it needed updates and renovations and it was dirty. This time I had brought my 20 month old son and I wanted to vomit when I saw the "crib", it was actually a playpen that looked like it was never ever ever cleaned! When we returned home all three of us were deathly sick for a month. The only way I would go back is if they totally gutted the place and redid it. I was so disappointed the second time around. The only reason why I stayed was for the close proximity to Paddington and the fact that my toddler had more room to move around. What a mistake, since we all got sick.

    CLEAN?? CLEAN FOR A PIG STY!

    from

    I stayed at this hole in the wall the last week of July, 2003. It was sold to me as a 3 star by a major on line travel site that I will not name but they are expeditious to a lot of travel. It was filthy; there was dust on top of the dirt, which covered the mold and mildew. And that was the entire place, not just my room. The remains of a dead pigeon were on the outside window ledge with our open, screenless window-opened by somebody prior to our arrival. The kitchen counter electrical outlet was pulled half way out of the wall. The white window curtains were a dismal grey color from having flapped outside in the breeze, as curtains will do when no screens are present. The bathroom, oh the horror of the bathroom. I've seen better in rural Mexico. The decor was so outdated that it might have been retro had they not been in such poor condition. I could go on, but as you can see I was less than impressed with this sub one star hovel. I should also state that I am well traveled and understand what a 3 star hotel in London is supposed to be. This was not it.

    Would stay there again

    from

    Excellent location (safe and very close to tube and bus stops. Moderate price. Friendly staff, tries to please. Needs reconditioning, though: the furniture looks old and very used. The rooms are well equipped and clean. The tvs have terrible reception, but that's not a priority. No problems with personal property. Apparently no two rooms are alike, some more comfortable/better arranged than others. The street side can be noisy; since there is no air cond you have to sleep with the window open. My stay was in May, 2003.

    Careful with your belongings!

    from

    Clean building. Hand-me-down furniture. Nice staff. Or so I thought until our last day! Since my digital camera was full, I left it in the bottom dresser drawer. Upon arriving back to the room, we found door ajar! (maid had been in -room straightened) My camera was gone! I'm more heart-sick over the loss of my pictures than I am the camera. Informed manager, but nothing came of it, and of course we had to leave early the next morning!
