3. LONDON TIP

Patricia T wrote to share a tip on London accommodations. Patricia wrote: “We recently visited London and stayed in a modern Travel Lodge at Kew Bridge. We took my hoist with us, and there was plenty of room and a very good bathroom. We invited a friend for dinner and the food was excellent. There was an all-you-can-eat breakfast, too.”
