got up early again today was a pretty long drive we went to the giants causeway, walked a rope bridge with a 80 foot drop below - very scary my legs were shaking, great time to get a text message too - half way across - thanks danny and vaughan lol wasnt checking them till the other side lol. to make matters worse there were about 500 steps down to …
... off. I eventually just gave in and agreed with her that I was going broke and should turn off my phone. Once I get to the station downtown, I literally climbed at least 100 stairs with my 50.8 lb bag and at least 20 lb backpack. Then of course there's stairs to get out of the station, where it's raining as your dragging all your stuff to the hostel.
Now we never got a confirmation for the hostel, so ...
... And, don't underestimate the statement about those carrying guns. No names, no pack drills... but at least 1/4 of those we socialised with were carrying
Do not underestimate the Legacy Run itself. Even with a day of acclimatising, you will still be suffering a bit of jet-lag when the run starts on the Sunday morning at 0800. Most days we were marshalling at 0600 and not checking into our hotels until 2100 - they are long days. There is a plan to ...
... day at the Gallery looking for the Seurat Drawings but they turn out to be not what we expect. On return to the house I found that note that I had left for the warden did not evince any sympathy and I have incurred a 170pd fine, reducible to half if I pay within 14 days. Do I pay it or do I shoot through back home and let the bailiffs find me? T makes me ...
Both were happy with their respective purchases, as we had time to look in some shops. We are starting to accumulate a bit of extra stuff, but Wayne should be impressed as we somehow managed to bring everything with us to London on the train. He thought we would have to leave some stuff at Reigate, for the cousins to bring in when we next catch up with ...

Great welcome from Demetrios, fantastic location. Room good, needs up dating a bit, but for the money what esle would you expect. Staff excellant and fab breakfast incldued. Couldn't have asked for more.
Thank you for your kind words.
I understand what you mean about updating a bit and I am glad to say that we have purchased brand new furniture for all bedrooms. I am also planning a painting programme this August and hopefully installation of new flat screen TVs come September.

Searcys Roof Garden Rooms
I really enjoyed my stay at Searcy's. The rooms represented great value for money, being both clean and comfortable and the location would be hard to beat. The staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. My friend and I arrived later than planned and there was no time to go out for lunch before getting ready to leave for our evening event. The hotel provided a light snack in our room at a moment's notice. I will certainly stay again. Thank you Dmitri and Iwona - it's good to know that hospitality is still alive and well.
I arrived and was escorted to my room having been informed by the Manager that my room had been upgraded. What a pleasant way to commence a rapport!
I was curious to see what recent reviews might have been written about Searcy's in the years after we stayed there. My wife and two younger children stayed there a few years ago on the recommendation of a friend (who had stayed there years earlier), and we were pleased in some ways, but very unhappy in others.
We had real problems booking a hotel for mid-week end of July - right in the midst of the Tourist Season. This was one of the only available hotels.
Excellent Value for the Location
The very quiet location behind Harrod's cannot be beat; the room was nicely decorated and well-priced by London standards; the breakfast included in the room rate outstanding. All the staff were pleasant and helpful.
