    EduGeek@BETT 2011 - Hotel Notice

    Just to let you know that this year we will be changing hotels. In previous years we have stayed at the Holiday Inn on Cromwell Road, but over the past few BETTS it has satarted to take longer and longer to get back to the hotel due to lack of taxis etc, and had got so bad that it took over an hour almost every night this year, so this time we are staying at the Novotel London West in Hammersmith if anyone wants to stay in the same hotel as us when visiting BETT. It is only half a mile from Olympia, so we can walk there and back each day. I did want us to stay at the Hilton, but couldn't juistify spending over 5200 for us all for the week. Besides, they do a mean white russian in the Novotel bars

    1.4 miles too far for you to walk?

    The Novotel is a better hotel IMHO

    After a day at BETT? 1.4 metres is too far to get to the bar.
    Novotel is better too, you're right. Should be in there ourselves.

    I'm here.
    Steamboats rock!

    SoCo launched them in a can a while back, not sure if they had it planned or my writing to them every week with the suggestion of putting the cocktail recipe on the back of a beer mat that did it.

    The benefit of the Novotel, apart from the late night drunken sing songs by the piano, is that at least if we forget James in the bar, he wont have as far to walk!

    They have a piano in that one for us to sing around?! Who out of the Edugeek BETT Team plays piano then? Or is it an Elton John Red Piano that plays itself?
