Plaza on Hyde Park Hotel
A small pub near Plaza on Hyde Park furnished our first London supper. If their fish n chips are representative of this British favourite, I'm unclear why. The chips (we'd call them steak fries or thick French fries) were excellent, but the fish consisted of a single, large filet, deep-fried with scattered bones. Quite a challenge to eat, and disappointing.
Generally, hotels provided a cot or roll-away bed to turn a double room into a triple. After much animated discussion, we decided that the bed assignments would rotate; Elizabeth would take the cot at the first hotel (London), then Dale (in Leasowe), then Carol (in Paris), etc.
Dale found the beds comfortable, but the cots were consistently comfortable as well.
