    Looks like this is definitely a full-house now

    News....

    I think I now have our rooms reserved in Annecy, for four nights:

    Monday 26 August

    Tuesday 27 August

    Wednesday 28 August

    Thursday 29 August


    It's the Hotel Restaurant Arcalod Doussard

    http://www.hotelarcalod.fr/accueil_en.html

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Hote...rance&t=m&z=19

    Seems to do OK on TripAdvisor:

    http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_R...one_Alpes.html

    Because of the season lots of hotels like to work on a half-board basis (breakfast and evening meal). That's OK with me.

    I am just waiting for confirmation that we have:

    • One double room (gone to a mate of mine, Ian and his wife, Bernie) EUR 146 a night inc. meals
    • Six single rooms (one gone to me) - EUR 78 a night inc. meals
    • One twin room - EUR 77 a night inc. meals


    Now, we probably have some oversubscription, so I will be as fair as I can be:

    • First to bods who are Subscribers to UKGSer as of today.


    • Second to bods who have been in regular contact with me via PM. These are:


    Iand46
    Yorkie
    Byron

    • Third to bods in the same order as they posted up interest:


    Neil DD
    Wessie
    Karl P
    Bakerlonglegs
    Tommymoto

    From that list, we can probably do a bit of juggling around and / or hope that I can get another twin room..... This of course assumes that chummy the hotel owner can confirm my booking..... If bods can let me know if they are happy to share, I'll do my very best.

    I will PM everyone so that they can see that the thread has come to life.

    If I can get a firm landing on the rooms by the end of this week I can look for our hotels on the way down and back etc and not least sort out our crossing and return dates.

    I'm in.

    I'm happy to share a twin. Not so sure someone would want to share with someone who snores very loudly and other reasons.

    I guess the plan is to start the trip on Sat 24th, PM tunnel to assemble in St Omer for the first overnight stop. 1 more overnight before hitting Annecy on the bank holiday Monday.

    I like the idea of a lunch time crossing on the last day, presumably Sunday 1st Sept?

    6 days to book off work then, taking Monday 2nd Sept off to do some laundry etc.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Annecy Trip

    Hi there Richard
    Thanks for the post and I would like to be included if there is space. This just fits into the very last part of my summer hols so perfect. I would prefer a single room but will share if it helps. Thanks for all your planning so far.
    Regards
    Byron

    BACK: Sunday 01 September Departure time 18:20

    Hi Richard,
    That still looks good for me - so I am a definite yes. Also happy to go for half-board or whatever.

    I would still prefer a single room due to some disgusting personal habits (snoring being the main one but I am working on others) but would consider sharing if there is a problem.

    Same trains now booked.

    Regards,
    Peter

    Right then, chaps...

    Phew....

    Cracked it! I have booked us all in to Annecy....

    One double room: Gone to Ian & Bernie

    Seven single rooms:

    1. Wapping
    2. iand46
    3. tommymoto
    4. wessie
    5. byron
    6. Yorkie
    7. NeilDD


    I have cancelled the twin room.

    I have confirmed this booking to the hotel.

    Now the next bit of news......

    We are taking a lot of rooms at what is the height of the season, so I have had to pay (via my credit card) a significant deposit amounting to about 1/3 of our total bill, which the owner will debit me for sometime next week.

    As we are all grown up, I don't mind doing that on the very clear understanding that I WILL recover the cash from you happy Tossers.... Let's deal with that later. But if anyone has a problem with the concept, sing-up, now....


    Now to sort out our hotels en-route.....

    Richard
