DYLAN HOUSE: FREE PORN IN LONDON


Dylan House advertises that the rent serviced apartments. The first thing I noticed was just how small the room was. And it was a room, not an apartment. There was a kitchenette, but you almost need to sit on the bed to cook in the single rooms. If you don’t have large bags, no problem. It was tiny, but comfortable. My room was quiet (around the back), it all worked and it was modern. I could put cold beers in the fridge and microwave things. Cooking would need to be pretty simple as the kitchenette is tiny as well.

OK, so you want to know about the porn? I turned on the TV which is hooked up to a satellite box. And a naked woman began talking to me in Italian. Changing the channels brought up equally unclad multi-lingual colleagues. Any major language was catered for! In fact this satellite card seemed to be almost exclusively dedicated to the naked female form. I found it very hard to find the news. On the plus side I now know some interesting words in 4 languages that I may be able to use in the future in a sleazy foreign bar.

The location was good near Paddington Station and is in a quiet neighbourhood. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby, so all in all – it’s a reasonable choice. An interesting choice in terms of in-room entertainment options, but a good nights sleep.



overview:
• 22 Quiet ‘apartments’, good beds, great location, rooms are small
• Free Wi-Fi
• 2 other locations in London

All ‘apartments’ include: Iron, Fan (no air-conditioning, but rooms are cool), Heating, Shower, Hairdryer, Telephone, Radio, Flat-screen TV, Tea/Coffee Maker, Kitchenette, Refrigerator, Microwave, Electric kettle, Kitchenware, Toaster, satellite TV box

NAYLAND HOTEL: POOR CHOICE IN LONDON


The Nayland describes itself as a 3 star hotel. Only in London will you see hotels promote themselves 1-2 stars more than they deserve. If this is an international 3-star place, then I am the King of the Universe (if you believe this, bow down now, rate this tip and go read some more of my reviews). The Nayland follows a long tradition of rubbish hotels in and around the Paddington area. It was an old and decaying hotel that someone bought at the top of the market around the mid to late 1990’s. The owners, realising that the market had now crashed and they had vastly overpaid for the hotel, save costs by doing little or nothing. No decorating, repair, upkeep. And – of course – chopping rooms in half and putting in cheap and thin walls. Bathrooms? Tiny. Mattresses? Thin, cheap and rarely replaced. Towels? Rough and thin. The Nayland is on a busy road in London and you can hear it. It’s a run-down building and you can do better in London at this price. You have to look, but you can do better.



OVERVIEW:
• A well located, old hotel on a busy road with poor beds and small bathrooms
• Continental Breakfast is included
• 41 Rooms with thin walls, narrow corridors and squeaky floors
• Wireless Internet access (surcharge)
• Luggage storage, Fax/photocopying, Tour desk, Ticket service

ROOMS:
• Room types: Single, Double, Twin Rooms, Triple, Quad Rooms
• Below average beds, needs redecoration, thin walls
• En-suite but very small bathrooms
• Rooms are small

IBIS BUDGET: ASTOUNDING VALUE - MANCHESTER


PLEASE NOTE: This used to be the Etap Hotel, but is now owned by the Accor Hotel Group and called the IBIS Budget Manchester.

I have to admit that I do avoid Accor owned hotels like the plague after 3 incidents in 3 countries. This hotel, however, is excellent. For £30 ($46) you can stay just across the street from the tram to take you wherever you want to go in Manchester. Even if you come back late in a taxi, you are probably going to pay £5 or less to get back. The hotel is quiet, has its own car parking (get here early or by train), and has reasonable rooms. The staff are nice and when I asked for a corner room, the appropriate key appeared (room 406). My room was reasonable sized, had an ok mattress, efficient bathroom facilities and was very good. This is not a bad place to share a room. I had ‘bunk beds’ with a single on the top and double/twin at the bottom. The shower and toilet are in spate rooms so you can use the room without too much hassle.

It’s even located cross from a massive pub with a full restaurant menu. An excellent bargain for a night out in Manchester.



HOTEL OVERVIEW
• 210 non-smoking and climate controlled rooms
• WI-FI
• 25 Car parking spaces (small charge, get there early!)
• Wheelchair access and 14 reduced mobility rooms
• Non-smoking hotel
• Built by someone else so even the bastards at Accor can’t mess this up

Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel: EXCELLENT BUSINESS HOTEL - MANCHESTER


I chose this hotel because I was organising training for managers over a 3 day period. The Marriott offered me an excellent 24-hour delegate rate and it looked nice when I visited. In fact it looked so nice that I make excuses to stay here for 3 days when there was absolutely no business justification to do so! I had a lot of slack in my schedule so I was hanging around the pool or in the gym while they did the training. I made sure I didn’t miss the buffet lunch (good) or eveniteh restaurants (excellent!). I only had to pay for my bar bill. This was not a small amount after 3 days. By the way all my delegates raved about how good the meeting rooms were and that the food was magnificent. It is also very easy to get here by car and plane. They even display the arrivals and departure flights in the lobby.

The rooms are very well appointed and the beds are Marriott beds. Guaranteed to give you a good night’s sleep. The only was disappointed with was that the walls are thin.

The bathrooms are modern and have excellent toiletries.

If you have the time like I did, have a good swim in the indoor pool and a good soak in the Jacuzzi.

RITZ HOTEL: KNOWINGLY NASTY - EDINBURGH


I booked this hotel for friends who wanted to visit Edinburgh for the first time. They we appalled at the filthy conditions they saw in this hotel. To add insult to injury, the staff agreed with them when they complained. They explained that the owners had cut costs by having less housekeeping staff. Not only was it completely obvious, my friends manage a bed & breakfast themselves. They were deeply upset. Just have a look at some of the pictures. It is obvious places where literally half of a handrail has been dusted and the other half left for weeks or months! The chairs in the room show months of dust. The radiators look like they have not been cleaned for years. Pillows and pillowcases were stained. Ritz my arse. More like the S.hitz.

There is no excuse for lack of housekeeping. None. Either do it or close down and go home.



OVERVIEW:
• 27 guestrooms which are not cleaned properly or often (photos)
• irons/ironing boards which are dirty (photo)
• coffee/tea making facility in your less than clean room
• No parking

1 LEXHAM GARDENS: NEVER AGAIN - LONDON


This crazy hotel describes itself as “boutique-style”. My arse it is. They are a cheap hotel, but there is no excuse for the rooms and facilities they provide. I made the mistake of booking in here for 2 nights. The first night was in the basement under some stairs. I heard people coming and going all night long. As soon as I sat on the bed, I realised that I would end up with small red rings on my back. Bad! And the room was very small. In the morning I tried to take a shower. I am relatively slender, and I barely fit inside. I dropped the soap at one point and had to open the door and get out to retrieve it! There is no way a large person would have fit in that shower. Before I went to work (tired), I begged them to change my room. They did and I ended up in another tiny room. Luckily it had a better bed and a larger shower. It still had the powerful drain smell in the bathroom that all the rooms seems to have, but at least I got some sleep.

This is a self-described budget hotel, but they still charge a lot of money unless you book in winter months. At more than £100 a night for a single, there is no excuse for the tiny rooms, broken window blinds, drain smells and noisy rooms. It really shouldn’t be optional for you to be able to get a night’s sleep. For the same price you could stay at somewhere like My Place Hotel, which is closer to Earl’s Court Underground Station and restaurants.



OVERVIEW:
• 55 Noisy, small rooms, poor beds, broken things, Non-Smoking
• Laundry service, airport transportation and concierge
• Ironing room

ROOMS:
• Small, cramped, bad beds, drain smells, noisy
• Room types: Single, Twin
• Flat screen TV (Freeview channels), Telephone, Tea/Coffee Making Faculties
• Hairdryer (available at reception for a deposit of £5)
• Wireless Internet Access (£2 for 24 hours connection)

Regents Park Residence: £20 CHECK-IN FEES (London)!!!



In my personal opinion, these people are creepy, weird, rude and cannot be trusted. Just my opinion. I booked these ‘people’ and the ‘accommodation’ on a website different from their own. 3 hours before I get there I received a phone call form a rude sounding woman demanding to know when I was checking in. She also told me she was ringing from a different accommodation. OK. Alarm bells are ringing away here. I rang the number back and told her I was booked elsewhere. NO. She tells me I must come to a different address and name! Weird. She tells me it’s a 20 minute walk away! Not good. I told her my schedule and she insists I come to check-in a least an hour earlier than I intended. No reason given.

I show up and guess what? It’s some sort of real estate/accommodation bureau office. I am here for 1 night on business. Yes, Miss ‘Friendly’ is busy. I explain I am here and need to go to my dinner reservation some distance away. I will just have to wait. When I say I will leave my bags and be back in a minute “NO!”. Ok, I will come back. “You will be charged £20 for check-in when your return”. Ehhh??? What the hell?

Have you very heard of being charged £20 to check-in? ANYWHERE in the WORLD? No, me neither. Threatened with it I was.

Luckily for me I had booked it through h a good website and I was given a great hotel.

Later I looked on the website I booked on and found this:


Please note that the check-in is at Ground Floor, 4 Greenland Place, NW1 0AP. Guests should confirm their arrival time by calling the number provided on the booking confirmation at least an hour before arrival.
There is a surcharge for late check-in between 9 PM and midnight.

Yes, a different address!

And the weird thing. If you book this direct with their own website, linked below, you are told neither about the £20 charge or check-in at a very different location.

Now would you trust these people?



£20 TO CHECK-IN AFTER 9PM OR IF THEY JUST GET MAD AT YOU.

INDIGO LONDON TOWER HILL: WISH I COULD AFFORD THIS IN LONDON


Yes I did stay here. I just didn't pay for it. I had used my favorite Hotel website (Hotels.com) to book another hotel. There was a mistake on the reservation and they asked me where I need to be. I explained I was working in the City (of London) and they found this wonderful Boutique hotel. Wow. From the second I walked into the plain building I knew something was different. I was greeted very warmly and offered everything. Newspaper, business services, gym in the morning, you name it. It was too late for the gym, but I knew these nice people would be as happy to serve customers in the morning as well.

My room was amazing. In fact - it really does look like their website photos. My 4 posted bed was comfy. My wi-fi service was excellent. I ironed my clothes (in the room) in my new robe while I watched my nice TV and drank cold beers (ok I brought those in). I did have a nice fridge to raid for some cold drink in the morning.

After a good nights sleep I set up my espresso machine and went for a shave in my nice bathroom with all sorts of lighted mirrors. My shower was really great and the towels well worth stealing (no I didn't). But I did take some nice toiletries home.

I enjoyed my room so much, I decided to work from the room that morning. I really did not want to leave!

This is a great hotel. Its hard to believe its part of the InterContinental Hotel group as it definitely does not look like a chain hotel at all. If you want a bit of luxury and comfort near the Tower of London (and City) - this is a great choice.

AMBASSADORS HOTEL: LAMINATE PALACE - LONDON


I found myself at the Ambassadors after my original hotel had a pipe burst. I was greeted warmly and my request for a quiet room was granted with a windowless room in the basement. This is fine with me as I just want a good night’s sleep. My room was small, but workable and everything was modern. The bed was good and I did get a reasonable sleep. I had a good TV, climate control, coffee/tea and the room and bathroom were of a high quality.

Like many full renovated hotels in London, rooms have probably been cut in half, thin walls erected and laminate flooring is everywhere. The Ambassador is no exception. This means that if you get the wrong neighbours beside and above you – you have problems. I have had plenty of drunken Flamingo Dance Troupes and middle aged German men who seem to have large Teutonic Church Organs for a nose and mouth. Between the walls shaking from their sneezing or the constant clearing of the throat – you start to realise homicide should be on the 24 hour room service menu. The hotel would make a killing. Pun intended.

I was lucky. The 2 old German guys (ok, maybe they were Austrian) who had nasal issues spared me until I woke up. My point is that if you are a sound sleeper, it’s a great hotel. If not, it’s a good hotel and you need to stand your ground with the neighbours. My rule is that I knock and speak to them once. The second time I ring reception to deal with. The 3rd time is me in reception with my luggage looking for another room or hotel.

So it’s an ok hotel and there are some good (and bad) restaurants nearby.

• 140 rooms in the Kensington and Chelsea district

Ramada Docklands: AN INTERESTING CHOICE IN LONDON


The Ramada is an interesting choice. It is on the doorstep of the ExCel Exhibition Centre and a short walk to 2 DLR Stations. It also advertises itself as being the closest hotel to London City Airport. Having said that, it is also a little out of the way, but in a quiet and safe area. There is a good selection of restaurants and bars 700 meters away, just walk around to the other end of the ExCel Centre.

If you don't want to walk, then it's the hotel's Stresa Italian Restaurant and the Oval Bar. Despite being right beside the London City airport, I did find it quiet. This was helped by having extra soundproofed windows, having a room at the back and it being night time. The only I problem I had was the sound of doors slamming at times. the door closers on the room doors make every door closing a wall rattling 'Bang!'. I have never understood why any hotel would use such a system. Other than that I found the hotel slightly dated, but good. My room had a desk, free Wi-Fi, coffee/tea facility, Neutrogena toiletries, and ok bed, steam iron/board, and a very large TV. My sleep was ok, but the bed needed a new mattress. Probably guests haven't told the hotel, and I forgot to tell them myself. I found the staff helpful and polite. I also enjoyed my free newspapers in the lobby.

All in all, it was ok. The hotel is more oriented towards work conferences with full board options for companies. If you are a solo traveller, you will want to be aware that this is in Zone 3 of the Tube/DLR network and it can take a while to get to central London. Also there can be bus replacement services on weekends if they are doing maintenance on the DLR.

They do have a small ‘Fitness Room’, but you could go for a job in the nearby area.

Parking is mostly chargeable (up to £2 an hour). Having said that there were plenty of spaces when I was there. The odd thing is they have a limited number of free (no charge) parking spaces, but the can NOT be booked in advance. First come, first serve.

For businesses they offer half and full board delegate rates with all the expected services thrown in.



• Air-conditioned rooms
• Treble glazed windows (soundproofed)
• Easy walk to the DLR
• Rooms are good with a steam iron/board, desk, big TV and coffee/tea facility
• Very large TV (limited channels)
• Bathrooms have Neutrogena toiletries, hair dryer, good mirrors and showers
• Free Wi-Fi in rooms and also internet accessible computer (lobby)
• Free newspapers (lobby)

THE SHINING: DUNADRY HOTEL & COUNTRY CLUB


If you have ever seen the movie ‘The Shining’ with Jack Nicholson, you will have seen a dark and somewhat spooky grand old hotel. The Dunadry is exactly like that, except no ghosts or axe murderers. They have beautiful hardwood floors and even exposed timbers in the main reception building. It’s a nice old hotel with a bit of stress on the old part. I was given a room with large double glass doors opening into a nice courtyard. It was hot so I left these doors open all night. No problem – it was nice and quiet. The room itself was a combination of real and musty wood, brick walls and the absolute feel of the 1970’s. I even had an old radio in a wooden console by my bed. I am not complaining, it was just that I felt like I was in a time warp.

My stay was great. I was here for several days and I enjoyed great beer, service, food and even live music from someone wedding reception. The corridors are dark and muted and you do expect to see some bloody and tortured ghost when you turn a corner – but no problems. I had a good bed, large bathtub and lot s of peace and quiet. A very old and historic hotel.

A LITTLE HISTORY OF THE HOTEL:
The name ‘Dunadry’ is a derivation of the Gaelic words for ‘Middle Fort’ (Dun-Eddery). Red Branch Knights of Ulster and their celebrated hero, Conal Cernach, built 3 forts between the villages of Tara and Dunseverick. In the 1600’s gentleman by the name of Daniel Blow founded a paper mill here. In its heyday the Blow family appointed as court printers to William III and are reputed to have printed the court circulars at the time of the Battle of the Boyne (xxx). The paper mill used water from the river now known as Six Mile Water to power its activities. It was later transformed from paper to linen manufacturing the early 1800’s. By 1920 it had become its own village of more than 20 houses and its own railways station.

The original hotel owners purchased the run-down village in 1957 and the Dunadry Hotel now covers the site of the entire old village. The Mooney family purchased the hotel in 1986 and continue to operate the hotel today.



HOTEL OVERVIEW:
• Completely quiet, great beds, centrally located in Northern Ireland

Radisson SAS - Manchester Airport: STAY INSIDE MANCHESTER AIRPORT


I have stayed here several times for business meetings and VT meetings. It’s actually the best way to stay near Manchester Airport, as it’s actually inside the airport in the middle of the 3 terminals. Despite being next to the runway, it is sound-proofed and the rooms are silent at night. They have 4 themes to the rooms and I have stayed in 2 of them. Avoid the ‘Scandinavian’ rooms. The furniture was very low and I picked up a bunch of bruises on my shins. Otherwise I can recommend this hotel for early morning flights (with car parking package) or as a business conference facility that you can reach by car or train.

While you are here, even for meetings, you will enjoy the food. It is excellent and the SUPER BREAKFAST is not to be missed. They even have American breakfast items. The bar is great and they can mix any drink and even have live music. Try and get your boss drunk so they pay the bar bill, it’s not cheap.

All in all, it’s a unique and nice hotel.

Hotel The Place in Edinburgh: Outstanding 4 star hotel with amazing character

We had a very comfortable stay at The Place on our recent holiday in the city of Edinburgh. This is an outstanding 4 star hotel with modern facilities including a restaurant and a chic cocktail bar with truly amazing character. We were very satisfied with our stay indeed. This is a four storey hotel with 47 well furnished rooms. The hotel has no lifts as it is spread over three Georgian style townhouses. Every room has a flat screen LED television. The rooms are small but adequate. The personnel especially the reception staff are warm and friendly and services are impeccable.

Every room is complete with coffee/tea maker. Safe deposit boxes are available at the reception. Wi-fi is available in the rooms free of charge. The hotel has 24 hour reception.

The unique qualities of the hotel are its modern character Georgian terraces and its central location just several minutes to major tourist attractions in the city including the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. Another plus point is that the tram from the airport stops outside the hotel. It is the last tram stop from the airport. So you will not miss your hotel and you are not worried to locate your hotel in the city when you travel from the airport! We were satisfied with our stay and will not hesitate to come back again to the hotel.

GLENARTNEY GUEST HOUSE: PAPER WALLS - ISLE OF ARRAN


The Glenartney prides itself on being environmentally friendly. That may explain the paper-thin walls. I did enjoy my stay here, and had several quiet nights’, but you are at the mercy of the guests being quiet. And their dogs. Other than that - this is a beautiful place to stay. You can sit outside in the gardens and look out over Brodick Bay. Inside they have lovely decorated rooms, comfortable beds and warm communal rooms. They even run a fantastic bar in the evenings. I enjoyed sitting in the largest living room, having a cold beer and browsing through the guest library. Everything in Brodick is a healthy 5-10 minute walk away.

Glenartney is dog friendly. Just pay an extra £10 for rover (only one dog per room). I had a fellow flour legged guest and he was very quiet. His owners spoke loudly, but went to bed early.
