On our way to Poole recently, we decided to take a one night stay at Whittlebury Hall and Spa, situated in the little village of Whittlebury, Near Towcester, and a couple of miles from Silverstone race circuit.
Well, I seriously considered not writing this post as we are now well and truly committed to using Holiday Inn Express. No doubt people will disagree, but we have used a number of their hotels now, and have found the offering to be consistent in terms of room expectations, room quality, staff quality and value for money (good) and HIE poole was no different in this respect. So what can I add? But then I thought, I’ve written a review for every other HIE we’ve stayed at, why does this group of excellent, hard working staff deserve any less?
This is probably more of a mini-review of the hotel; being IHG credit card holders we use Holiday Inn Express a lot now, we get various perks and discounts during our stay (including discounted room rates if you book on the IHG website).
I’ve always fancied the idea of a world cruise but its not the sort of thing you can do when you’re working, unless you work for the kind of company who allow sabaticals, to do the stuff now that you will probably be too old to properly enjoy in later life. For us then this remains a retirement dream. Well, actually, my dream – I wonder if Sue fancies it? I suppose I should ask her.
So when we first set up our website, As a bit of fun I set up a counter to the day we would eventually set sail, and it read 9.2 years! Plenty of time to save up. But look how fast it’s ticking down! I had better start packing…
It’s been months in the making but I can now reveal that we are only days away from releasing our first ever video (or is that “Vlog”?) on our Youtube channel . It has taken a while to figure out the best way to present the hours and hours of footage, and it’s construction is worthy of a post in it’s own right! So dust off your tux, slip in to your ballgowns and grab your champagne by the flute because opening night is rapidly approaching!
