Sometimes on the road you’re lucky enough to find that kind of B&B or Hotel where they just get everything right. You want to become a spokesperson for their place. Obviously the place I’ve stayed at for the last couple of nights has more than filled the bill. The breakfast was awesome- tons of choices. The bed: the kind you never want to get out of. The proprietors: Hatsue and Michael, are wonderful. Plus their dachshund:
It’s the Hatsue Guest House, in Camberley. If you’re ever in Surrey, UK, and need accommodations, the B&B is lovely and reasonable.
Hatsue, is a very personable woman, she really goes beyond the call of duty to make you feel welcome. She even went so far as to drive us to an alternative rail station so that our trip would take almost two hours less.
Camberley is a pretty little town I discovered. The streets are beautifully signed and named:
The Camberley Theatre was cool:
It’s always a pleasure to have your name in lights too:
The sign must have the power to convince. I had a whole whack of folks who came to the show who’d never seen or read Lord of the Rings. Like these two young guys:
In fact, the only person in the photo who’s seen or read the Lord of the Rings is me. Oh, the man in specs saw the LOTR Musical, in London.
The boys wanted a signed poster too. It was a pleasure to be in Camberley.
Tonight, I’m in Reading at the Concert Hall, starting at 8pm. Henry Paker is our comic support man.
I have an Executive Room at the Rainbow Hotel- it’s nice too- but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I miss the Hatsue Guest House.
Not as much as I miss my wife, mind you, because nothing compares to her.
