Same here! Only it's our 11th anniversary! I'm such a dunce, though.....I could have sworn I read to send in the fax at 5 days out, so I was waiting until Tuesday to send it. We check in on the 9th.

check-in

There are 2 reservations for our family trip (2 rooms) but I am wondering if I can do the check-in for everyone? My mom and in-laws are all new to this so it would be easier for me to do it.

Totally agree! Not one meal we had there in Oct was bad. Are actually going to save some money in Jan when we go and eat there instead of table service places.

Also wanted to thank you Venom! We got the building we requested, my sister had a corner river view royal room it was amazing! We are going to request that room again next month.

The meat is not charcoaled to within an inch of its existence, which seems to be the aim in the US. See http://www.thegreatbritishdiet.co.uk...les/Bacon.html.



What the Americans serve is generally regarded as "streaky bacon", and while a few Brits do like it, most regard is as a distinctly cheap and vastly inferior over-fatty cut.

A proper full (OK, very full) British Breakfast would be something like this, from http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/c...ast-alone.html:

That is some lovely bacon! I do not like my bacon cooked to a crisp.....I think I'd like your British bacon very much!
