I have to say when I arrived at this hotel the first time I was not impressed at all. The receptionist's body language was very negative, she didn't stand up to greet me or smile at me and actually turned away after she spoke to me. It was a different story when I returned later to check-in properly. The two guys on the desk couldn't be more helpful and the room was lovely. I opted to pay for breakfast which is offered at a discount if you book the night before and at £8 is great value for money. I can see how this hotel is popular for weddings and other special occasions as it is set in fabulous grounds. The breakfast was good quality and when I checked out the two ladies at reception again couldn't be more helpful.

... repair means that the wire is attached half way down rather than at the top. Carefully I step over which is fortunate as there is a latch gate ahead.
I stop to have a chat with a wellington booted couple from West London. We swap mud bath scare stories. I generously share my 'hop over the fence at the appropriate place' advice - would hate to be responsible for an electrocution. They are contemplating where best to have lunch - Shiplake or Sonning? Not much use asking me as I ...
... to Merton Priory although the Duke of Marlborough was to decorate the fishing lodge ceiling with monkeys in 1738 so the name stuck. It's now a posh hotel and has been since 1840. Edward VII and Queen Alexandra took tea on its lawn, HG Wells visited several times with Rebecca West, she in turn described it her novel 'The Return of the Soldier' and the Birmingham Six stayed here in 1991 on their release from prison. Making my way through ...
... front row so have a birds eye view of all the action. The music outstanding as were the general cast, all in all some fine entertainment. Tonight we went out to the Royal Standard of England Alehouse for a pub meal. This place is reportedly the oldest pub in England with parts of the place a tad over 900 years old, a few jugs of Pimms were had along with some traditional English pub grub. Home early as the Don still worse for ...
Today is our last day :( But, probably one of the more interesting days, too! Today we're off to Bath and Windsor. Compared to yesterday, we got to sleep in this morning.....the alarm didn't go off until 6:15 am! Our first stop today was Bath where we were able to do a tour of the Roman Baths. So very interesting! They've been in existence for 2000 years and they have uncovered a lot of the original pieces of the baths. After our self-guided audio ...
... have realized that her Facebook comments were getting scattered and few and far between but time passes rather quickly for me and I just hadn't a clue. Her husband told me that she had been diagnosed 18 years ago with breast cancer so the entire time I knew her, she never said a word. I wish she had let me help her, in any way I could have. But she was always fun to be with and upbeat and the only time I heard her complain ...
