Have to admit I wasn’t looking forward to spending a couple of nights
in Halifax. The drive there didn’t do much to raise my sprits either.
When I eventually pulled off the M62 and made my way to my hotel I was
getting more and more apprehensive. I began thinking of illnesses I
could fake that would prevent me from attending the conference but
leave me well enough to turn around and drive home.
I was still lost in my thoughts as the Sat-Nav guided me into the
hotel drive. Within moments I’d forgotten where I was, what a stunning
building! And things just kept getting better. Met with a glass of
wine and shown to my room by incredibly friendly, but not overly so,
staff. A quick shower to wash away the road, relaxed in front of the
flat screen on big comfy bed in my well proportioned room.
Then to dinner, absolutely delicious. Great service, wonderful menu
and a truly relaxed old world atmosphere in a beautiful wood-panelled
Breakfast was just as good as dinner. I found myself sitting though
the conference just waiting to get back to the hotel and planning what
I was going to have for dinner! Not something that I usually do when
staying a travel-lodge!
Next time there’s a conference in Halifax I know who’s going to be the
first to volunteer..
