  1. TripAdvisor is your friend: https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/HotelsList-London-Historic-Hotels-zfp9198.html
  2. They seem to be a reputable business. Try getting a quote from Smiths For Airports for comparison. http://www.smithsairportcars.co.uk/
  3. Salisbury (by train) and possibly Stonehenge (by hoho bus) if Portsmouth Royal Docks doesn't appeal
  4. I don't see why my tax money should go to the fat cats [badly] running this airline.
  5. I suggest that you start a new thread. You are likely to get a better response.
  6. I have to say that my old school served a pretty mediocre Sunday Lunch, and not from a trolley. 🙂 Hyphens rule OK?
  7. As another 'Brit' I agree with JB. Is anyone offering odds on how long the marriage will last? On the question of customs at Southampton, AFAIK they seem to only turn out for ships that visited Gibraltar where fags and booze are duty-free.
  8. Sorry - I looked for a code and it was for the airport - it was me who had the wrong car park not you...:( There is no delete option, but I could have replaced my post with a more useful comment.
  9. TBH this question is too vague to get good replies. You might do better to consult a travel agency that specialises in cruises.
  10. For anyone flying in a sailing day, JB (as usual) gives good advice. Negotiating public transport with changes after a night flight and loaded down with luggage is not for the faint hearted. As always, it's far better to fly in a day early, which takes the pressure off.
  11. Beware of bed size descriptions like 'queen' and 'king'. They do not mean the same thing on both sides of the Atlantic. A King size bed may measure 60" in × 80 " in the UK but 76" × 80" in the US. A standard double here is 54" × 75". If you don't want to snuggle up with your partner, ask for a twin bed room... 🙂
  12. Many of the hotels and guest houses in Bath were built as private houses. The strict conservation rules often mean that it is impossible for them to install things like lifts or air con. Rooms are also likely to be fairly small as a big part will be taken out to allow for an en-suite bathroom (again not a feature in Georgian homes). TripAdvisor allows searches with limiting criteria and the OP should make use of that.
  13. It's been some years since I stayed in Bath so my experience is out of date. I do remember being somewhat spoiled for choice in this tourist-oriented city.
