A London Yacht Hotel #BriFri — 8 Comments

  1. That floating hotel sounds and looks amazing! The $700 per night is a little rich for my blood but I can see it would be totally worth it! I wonder if they’re doing a lot extra stuff on World War I – in France they’re having quite a few memorial events as it’s the centennial of a lot of the famous battles. An interesting time to be there, I imagine.

  2. A million years ago I stayed in a youth hostel in Stockholm that was a big boat, I don’t think a yacht! There is a floating hotel in Seattle that has amazing views, but besides the novelty as a tourist I am too pragmatic to fork over the big bucks when I want to sight see and not be in my digs much. That said I do insist on my own bathroom. Too old for a down the hall jaunt.

  3. Staying on a yacht would be a once in a lifetime experience for me….but not at $600 or more a night. Yikes. It would be fun though. When we have visited England and Ireland we book a cottage rental for a week at a time and spoke out from a central location. It’s not bad for a weekly rate and I can cook some meals at home. Still, a yacht stay would we incredible

  4. I too am reading The Road to Little Dribbling this week–I’m probably about 2/3 of the way through. It’s mostly fun, though I’m not wild about the occasional rant/whine and I think there’s a surprising amount of swearing for a humorous travel book for a general audience.

    Anyway, I’m learning useful things–such as that Stonehenge’s visitors’ centre has just been redone and the road changed, and that you can walk right into West Kennet Long Barrow. Things like that.

  5. I still haven’t read Notes from a Small Island or any Bill Bryson books other than the Appalachian Trail one. You’re such a great trip planner!–Wouldn’t it be great to stay a night in that yacht hotel? (One night would be fine for me; I’m not that thrilled about being on the water while I’m asleep!) I love the sound of the book The Road to Little Dribbling, and will be looking it up!

  6. The Yacht Hotel seems like it might be fun. My husband & I might be going to England in late Sept. so I will have to give some thought on where we stay. thx
