    Stay at other Hiltons in Vegas with no resort fees and no casino but still on the strip.

  • Peter K says:

    Sounds just a little grander than Resorts World Birmingham!

  • Alex W says:

    “Hilton is returning to the Las Vegas Strip” not sure what you mean, Hilton already has several strip and off-strip properties. We stayed at the Tropicana (Doubletree) a few years ago and thought it was pretty good. Good value, a little lounge with a few nibbles for Diamonds, and swim-up blackjack!

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      Also The Las Vegas Hilton (now the run-down Westgate) was iconic in its time – famous for everything from Elvis to the world’s biggest sportsbook to Star-Trek. But it was NOT on the strip 😀 :D.

    A big thank you to those here who recommended the DT at North Queensferry when rooms were going at £53 a night.

    Had to pay nearly £56, but the room is great, staff are good, restaurant does a very decent dinner for a hotel restaurant – and it has by far the best scrambled egg I have ever seen in a UK hotel, up to the standard of the Diplomat in Praha 15 years ago, and that is high praise. Wine prices at dinner are not as high as I would have expected either.
    Only real niggle, apart from the weather, which is foul, is that there is no view of the rail bridge…

    • BJ says:

      Made me laugh, I thought I might be alone in considering the quality of scrambled eggs a make or break factor in a hotels food offering. They are also excellent at DT Aberdeen City Centre.

      • Michael Jennings says:

        Scrambled eggs are lovely when done right, but in many hotels they are totally awful.

        A friend of mine came to visit recently, and I cooked her breakfast. She initially said no, but then I cooked some anyway for myself. She then said, “Oh, you can cook scambled eggs properly” and had some.

        Sorry for the digression, but it’s Saturday morning.

        • Peter K says:

          It’s not like scrambled eggs are hard to do, they just need proper attention while doing them.
          A lot of hotels though seem to have powdered egg mix or they are as dry as anything under heat lamps by the time you get to them.

          • Lady London says:

            My rule is never, ever have any breakfast featuring ‘scrambled eggs’ on a plane. Ditto ‘American breakfast’ where the main offender is often ‘scrambled eggs’. Asian breakfast has usually been ok on planes.

          • RussellH says:

            They DO have powdered egg mix.
            Some years ago, when my partner commented to staff at some hotel or other about the lack of scrambled egg, she was told that they had run out of powdered scrambled egg mix.
            On due reflection, I think that “powdered scrambled egg” is an oxymoron of the most distasteful kind!

        • Cat says:

          Digressions are expected on Saturday!
          Hotel scrambled eggs make me sad too.
          OH is currently making me scrambled eggs with smoked salmon for brunch, bless ‘im!

          • Anna says:

            Yum, my favourite meal, breakfast or otherwise (and it was pretty good with some LPGS in the Concorde lounge last year).
            My best scrambled eggs ever were in a French chateau near Chantilly, every 15 minutes or so a waiter would pour some double cream into the serving dish and give it a stir, it was utterly decadent!

      • RussellH says:

        Just got home and read the comments:-)
        There /were/ two other niggles in the restaurant
        a) My excellent confit duck was advertised as served with cavolo nero, but it was just (still very nicely cooked) green cabbage.
        b) The bar had run out of Maltsmith lager.

        Thanks for the scrambled egg tip in Aberdeen, we are not sure if we shall ever be back there though, as friends + relatives have all moved now.

  • Howard Jones: ‘80s synth-pop legend. says:

    My apologies. A question asked probably before but cannot locate answer. Referral bonuses for referrals for Amex to people overseas. Y or N?

    • Anna says:

      It would depend on whether they would be accepted with an overseas address, I’m not sure this is possible.

      • Anna says:

        Also, do you still have that 80s haircut?

        • Howard Jones: ‘80s synth-pop legend says:

          Thank you Anna. Unfortunately, the ravages of the decades have hurt me follicularly. But for me and for everyone else here, the more important question will always be: What is Love anyway?

          • Michael Jennings says:

            If you don’t have the haircut after all these years, really no-one is to blame.

          • Anna says:

            Ah well it doesn’t matter as long as you’ve thrown off those mental chains.

  • Don says:

    As reported earlier, Revolut have confirmed to me that VISA is back to 6012. Is anyone willing to the the guinea pig and check with Barclaycard?

    MasterCard is not for the time being, fixed, so would that mean using Curve linked to Barclaycard VISA would mean it goes through as 4829?

    • jc says:


      • Don says:

        Is there no doubt that Barclaycard would see the MCC as 6012 now? I just don’t trust Revolut that much. The previous change was totally unannounced.

        • jc says:

          No one here has a crystal ball to give you a 100% guarantee. Get it in writing from Revolut, then do it, if you get charged raise a complaint with Revolut to get it back (or Ombudsman, but Revolut pay these out at the complaint stage in my experience if you have the original promise)

      • fivebobbill says:

        … as I found out jc 😫

  • Alex Sm says:

    There is a similar UEFA competition on the Russian (and maybe other) pages of They might be a sponsor as well (or is it the same company?)

  • Daniel says:

    OT- Curve ATM Withdrawals. the free £200 per month ATM withdrawals, is is based on Calendar month?
