Destinations

I was trying to find out if you had any ideas for a destination - Falmouth, Salcombe, Looe, Eddystone, Weymouth etc?
I`ve spent 4 years in Plymouth and i like to try and get to somewhere different from my usual haunts!

The destination is Plymouth.

The idea being to have a meeting of members of this forum where we can gather and put faces to names and have a good time. Some like Charles will cross the channel by boat. Others such as myself Brian, Manos will be crusing down from the Torquay / Brixham area. Some may travel by road to Plymouth.

I have no doubt we will do a fair bit of boating while we are there to.

My understanding is that the Mountbatton center charges 25 a night B&B would have to check it though. Their is a bar and a pontoon could possible do them a deal to use them.

Thanks, but NO Thanks!! not disrespect but I will go for either the Holiday Inn or the Novotel (want to be able to sleep at night).
My student harsh years have ended loooong time ago and I like (when I can afford it) to have my comforts otherwise I do not do it.
Manos (if you do it do it in style)

Inaugural RIBnet Conference

Manos,
As an ex employee of said establishment I have to agree!
It was good when it first openned but now it is dreadful. The original managment have all left in disgust. They cater only for divers and open events. If you fit into any of these categories take care they will take you to the cleaners.
(EG 200 to use the showers and 1 PER page to photocopy! They tell you this after you use them.)
Try the Copthrone Hotel for an average room or the Duke of Cornwall for somewhere a bit plush
c ya there,

Chris.

Copthrone Hotel was also in mind but forgot to mention it.
The Mountbatton was not that brilliant when I was there (some 20 years ago!!).
And as I said why should I go somewhere and less comforts than I have at home and even worst pay for the inconvenience??
Any way I STONGLY suggest one of the three namely

COPTRONE
NOVOLTEL or
HOLIDAY INN

Hold on guys-don't panic Mr. Manos-wairing!!
I have spent most of the day scouting hotels etc. and Charles is in the last throws of doing a hotel deal for us.
PS Manos-the Holiday Inn, superb establishment that it, is want 128 today for a double and these prices ARE GOING UP!!
Think Charles has a much better deal fo us. Just hang on a second. Trust us.
