birmingham jewellery quarter for loved up couple


My oh so loved up,soon to be married mates called me for advice. we want to go to the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham…is it as great as they say it is ? well it is certainly an experience I said, well worth a look! Great they said we want to make a weekend break of it – can you fix us up with a hotel? Actually I said a great offer has just come in today on Birmingham – the  3 star Jury’s Inn in the city centre for 2 nights from £42 inclduing breakfast – sounds fab they said “book it”.

young lovers need privacy for dirty weekend


My teenage sons friends nabbed me the other day. You have something to do with hotels they queried?
Mmmm said I ? Well we want somewhere to stay in London for a night in October when Dean gets back from his army training. OK I said London is not cheap though, shall I just look for somewhere simple like a fairly central Travelodge. Perfect they said, we may stay two nights if we can get a better deal. I found a choice of 3 Travelodges for them to choose from all reasonably priced and fairly central – The Travelodge Farringdon – close to Kings Cross, The Travelodge – Marylebone and The Travelodge –  London City Road.
