Chris Wynne says:Hey guys
Fantastic website
Will the webcams be up and running again any time soon? They were great.
I had an 'interesting' chat with Alice the other night. It didn't solve my insomnia, but it sure as hell passed the time away!!!
Very interesting when she did confirm Dougie that you do wear your pants over your pyjamas!!!! Care to comment? :-)
Will she be coming forward from the 'pink' site to the updated model as well?
Our Reply:Hi Chris
Sorry - no. They took up too much bandwidth and I can't find a cheap enough ISP to install as secondary. Being a business everybody wants to charge me 20+ a month which, JUST for the webcams, is too expensive.
If I find one that will give me business use for a tenner a month then they'll be back.
LOL @ Alice. Well she was lying. Alice knows full well I don't wear pyjamas. She won't be featuring either on the new site...she's been there 6 years and her vocabulary isn't getting any better. I'm going to trade her in for a newer model. (but don't tell her I said that!!)
The "pink" site will be lost forever when I get around to it in November...but I'll be adding other stuff to the main site then also.
Thanks for your interest...and the laughs

carl says:hi doug stayed with you a few times and all your rooms are none smoking which is not a real problem a its law however just stayed at the GRAND BURSTIN HOTEL IN FOLKESTONE and the clearly state in reception that they are excempt from this law and allow guest to smoke in there rooms how is this possible is it choice?
Our Reply:Hya Carl
Yes...its down to the individual hotel's choice. The law states that if we allocate a room as "smoking allowed" then we MUST allocate ALL rooms within the same "fire zone" as smoking allowed - this means that every room behind the nearest fire door must be of the same type.
Bizarre....I know...but there you have it.
This would mean that one COMPLETE corridor of rooms would all be "smoking allowed" and, as you can imagine, the whole corridor would stink. Larger places, like the Grand Burstin perhaps, have more bedrooms and to allocate one of their floors as "smoking available" would not affect them so much. To be honest, even though I am a smoker, I prefer the Canasta as smoke free. It did used to "hum" a bit in the sun lounge after a busy Saturday night when we did allow smoking in the sun lounge.
I guess we'll have to give up
