Good Location for Seeing the City
My stay was back in March of 1973, so things may have changed. I'm going on memory but mostly on my diary from that trip. I was 15, traveling with my parents, and this was my first trip to the UK. I kept track of the strangest things... I was very much into dog watching, and listed a lot of the dogs I saw... nothing about boys or fashion, to speak of.
Anyway I did keep track of room numbers... wonder if I should contact these hotels and let them know that CdnJane stayed there???
My impression of the hotel was: Comfortable beds, and pretty nice. I think we ate in the dining room there, as well as having breakfast the next morning.
I have no idea of the price of the room.
Unique Quality: Not a unique quality, but a unique experience... I was wearing contact lenses then, and had quite the process to get them in.. involving a glass of water, and bottles of solutions. The morning we were leaving, I was on my knees, in front of the wall mirror, with this table, and my solutions, etc... when there was a knock on the door. Thinking it was my parents, I called come in... Well there I am on my knees, my index finger pointing upward (my lense was on it), with a white towel... and the paraphenalia... when the lady to do the room opens it up! I suspect she thought I was in the middle of some religious ceremony!!! She apologised and backed out quite quickly... 30+ yrs later, we're still laughing about it!
