As former residents of the area, we have regularly stayed at this hotel over the past 2 years. It is an easy walk from Central Station and with good public transport access to the city & airport. Although a little dated, the rooms and ensuites are spacious, clean, quiet and value for money. The hotel is open late and the bistro provides a variety of pub fare for lunch & dinner. A number of breakfast options are available within a short walk. Try the unnamed cafe run by an elderly chinese couple at the bus stop on the corner of Devonshire & Elizabeth Sts. Full english breakfast and good coffee for under $7 cooked exactly to your requirements. If your not 5 star travellers, then this is a good value option.

Finally arrived at Central Station about 4.30 pm, 8 hours after leaving home. Our accommodation is walkable from the Country Terminal but try struggling with 30kgs of luggage uphill on a cobbled pavment. Already I am dreading carting this luggage nearly 20,000 klms around the world.

After checking in to our accommodation, we split up for a …

... The ones we saw last time were made of wax and mostly behind a rope; the modern versions are made of fibreglass, more realistic and you can touch them! The exhibits get changed from time to time (all models are made in London and take an extraordinary number of hours to complete each model). It’s a more interactive experience; now you can walk amongst the figures. Another place ticked off the ...

... disorganised and I find lists keep me from being the latter. For those that have ever seen my work desk, it is usually covered in a plethora of post it notes and check lists. I must admit there I s a sense of achievement as you tick off each to do item and then screwing up the note and binning it. My list in this case has been a white board on the back of my front door..I have been adding to it and checking things off as I went. I thought I had sorted the ...

... was Erika's friend birthday so we went to the Argyle Rocks which is two storey bar/club. It's really nice in there as it has a big outside court area with big heaters, so we were able to chat to everyone and still be warm.

Sunday I went to S.A.S.H in Flyover bar. S.A.S.H is a daytime house event in the city that goes on ...

Great nights sleep and Royce is up early and off for a run. Back for breakfast , loving the Accor card which makes breakfast almost free,and then he is off for a bike ride and then to hand in his bike. He is noticeably jittery today . Lots of things to organize and a different type of race ... Handing in bags for transition with ...
