    in fact, i stayed here with my wife- we took train was the perfect antidote to airports-the premier train takes nethearly a day,but you can catch up on sleep,shower, and enjoy 4 delicious meals- thewe were given the toyal treatment,along with or fellow guests- go to the 200 foot ferris wheel, and the QV hotel was fit for the queen, even victoria would find the service-it was built on the battlements of te clock tower, historically significant- you won't believe the quality of service-the top flight staff were full of excellent suggestions-ask nicholas at the door where to find the best seafood-this is a 1st class hotel, in nay way i could think of-do yourself a favor,check it out-they will not dissappoint-
