Virgin Holidays booked most of the trip and we find ourselves in the Fairmont Empress Hotel. A very large traditional hotel. On checking in they offered a free upgrade to a room with a view over the harbour, oh and a round bed!
We could definitely get used to this! Unfortunately, when we return it will be back to 'good old Travelodge'.
Ferry to Victoria
While we were checking in I happened to mention that the trip was planned around Jan's birthday in June. About an hour after getting to our room there was a knock at the door. Free bottle of fizz, fresh strawberries and a birthday card for Jan!
We could definitely get used to this!
A couple of glasses later, we went out taking photos around the harbour, day and night. At times like this I wish my camera had an Auto setting. For some reason I forgot to take blog photos but the reflections in the water were great.
