G'day you blokes, new on here, done an intro. On 9 March we embark 'Arcadia' at Sydney to Southampton, 49 days via Asia/Africa to ye olde port of Southampton on 27 April. Once there renting a car from Thrifty, good price etc. OK, my query, Premier Inns in UK seem to have some reasonable deals and reviews on Tripadvisor, any of you blokes stayed in them, are they OK? I mean are they OK for the handbrake and I, we are not snobs, just a clean, comfy bed, hot shower, a good feed are fine. On our 3 weeks in UK post cruise intend to stay in inns, pubs, relatives, etc. Cheers.
