Nothing like waking to the sound of toilet waste rushing by your head. We managed to pack our bags in a confined space and the time to leave easyHotel had arrived. It didn't take long to check the room.. Credit to the staff at easyHotel. I mean, they know their hotel is just bad, but they've all been so friendly about it.
We finally got our first dose of Greggs, a bakery chain in the UK. We purchased bacon rolls and OJ and a sandwich for lunch for a total £7 for the both of us. There were weekend works on the tube but didn't delay us much to Victoria Station. We waited an hour or so before catching the National Express to Gatwick airport. With an early flight to Copenhagen tomorrow at 7am, we'd decided to be conveniently located near the airport at the Premier Inn. The bus took about 2 hours to get to the airport from London.
There was nothing convenient about getting to the hotel from the airport, despite it only being 10 minutes drive away. We were advised to catch a bus, but they were no longer running, there was no taxi rank, no public bus, and no assistance. The phone number we were given for the hotel was wrong. We waited 2 hours at different spots from bad advice. The only way was to phone order a cab which we eventually caught to the hotel.
The room was excellent, and cheaper than easyHotel.. In response to the inaccessibility of their hotel, the receptionist at easyHotel kindly offered us a free cab ride to the airport in the morning. Its 8.15 now and were going to sleep early. We will be up tomorrow at 4.40am. We've just come back from the best dinner of the trip so far. Mushrooms on garlic bread, pork belly, peppers, garlic potatoes, and a top choc caramel dessert to finish.
Looking forward to Copenhagen tomorrow. Lets hope our easyJet flight goes better than easyHotel.
