Cathay CX101 HKG-SYD

We have flown this flight previously only last time the aircraft was an A330 instead of the B777 currently servicing the route and last time we were in ecomomy.

Once again the selection of lounges in Hong Kong is outstanding. Flying overnight on the Cathay B777 in business is very private and comfortable. Inflight service is great sometimes you wish the flight could be longer?wink

Langham Hong Kong

How often do you find something really good then go back and it is not as good anymore?

This has not been our experience with the Langham in Hong Kong. Last time we stayed we upgraded to the club floors and this time we booked the club floors up front.

Nothing has deteriorated and if anything the service has improved if that was possible.

Yes it is expensive, yes it is really really good. To date the Langham Hong Kong has always been a memorable experience.

Thank you to all Langham Hong Kong staff.

Cathay CX252 LHR HKG

We have always found Cathay to be great, good aircraft layouts, first to upgrade us ages ago!! excellent service and lounges. With the demise of the B747 the B777 is close to providing the same or better feel of available space.

Although service may seem a little rushed at times what airline does not feel that way at times, and Cathay are a great airline to fly in any class.

Trereife House Penzance

We wanted to stay in Penzance for 2 nights and selected this property specifically the one bedroom apartment even though there was only one or two grainy images of the internals on their website and hotel booking sites. In hindsight the images must have been taken just after the minor renovation was completed some time ago.

The apartment was tolerable but there really is no excuse for things not being clean. we dare not sit on the sofa for example, carpets not clean, kitchenette sink drain smelt etc.

Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport

This trip we stayed at the Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport both the night we arrived from Las Vegas and the night prior to departing for Hong Kong. Transit from Terminals 2 and 3 via red buses was fast, easy and economical both directions with a bus stop almost right outside the hotel. We had a meal at the hotel restaurant the night we arrived which was fine and full breakfast both mornings which was also great especially in comparison to some of the country hotels in the USA.

The Sommerville Torquay

We found The Sommerville Torquay a great place to stay for the two nights we had available in Torquay. It is obvious from the second you meet the hosts that they care about ensuring your stay is satisfying and pleasant. The accomodation is in a central location for walking to most attractions, breakfast in the mornings is a highlight, the room with seperate sitting and bedroom is comfortable and clean and well maintained. All up we are very satisfied with our choice of The Sommerville Torquay for the 2 nights.

Penrhiw Hotel St Davids

This is really simple, just go ahead and book and experience this property and the hospitality! Awesome, sensational, relaxing, pleasant, historical yet modern and clean this property and staff were really really appreciatted.

Penrhiw Hotel St Davids, an outstanding highlight of this round the world trip!!!

Thank you Penrhiw Hotel St Davids for the two nights you looked after us we really wish our available time to stay was longer.


Quay Hotel and Spa Conwy

Booked this Hotel via Expedia and we reserved a one bedroom with balcony. On arrival the first evening after driving up from Cardiff the receptionist told us there was no booking then said nothing else and kept typing away at the keyboard. I searched for the booking details then presented the info and was told "no have found it just expedia has not downloaded or been checked".

Future Inn Cardiff Bay

We spent 2 nights at the Future Inn Cardiff Bay unfortunately the first night was Saturday and we endured a lot of noise from partying above and arguing etc in the car park. On advising reception of the fact the next morning they were very caring and moved us to a higher floor as well as offering free breakfast the following morning. The hotel is ok, a little closer to the city than St Davids where we stayed last time and not of the same standard/quality as St Davids but a much lower price than St Davids Spa and the elf parking comparted to valet parking was appreciated.

BA274 LAS to LHR

We have actually flown this same flight previously, last time in economy. This trip we were in business class upstairs on the Boeing 747 experiencing British airways unique front to back seating. Pre flight the lounge was the same as last time. Previously flying economy we had lounge access via Priority Pass this time due to being in business class. The seat is very different if anything it does not feel as wide as the Qantas Skybeds but there is plenty of legroom.
