    We had a great experience on four Vietnam Airline flights in business in January but at that time could not select VA to credit the mileage and these just appeared mid-April after several requests. Well worth flying with.

    Just had an enjoyable weekend stay. Was able to use the club pass that offers a la carte breakfast. Afternoon scones and cakes and evening canapés were very pleasant but not a filling meal. Decent selection of teas all day and alcohol during the happy hour session.

    I stayed at the IC Westlake a couple of weeks ago and have the annual lounge pass. Excellent range of hot dishes (around 6 options) with plenty of cold canapés and desserts and cheese. Sparkling wine and range of wines. Excellent gym and thermal area and outdoor pool. Lovely sunset bar overlooking the lake to enjoy a drink and some musicians. Easy transfers into town using Grab. Fantastic breakfast spread as well.

    I was at the CP Sheffield last week and was told the front bar area was being refurbished and would be the new lounge. It would be great if this becomes reality as this is bigger than the first floor area pre-COCID & I really like the hotel and the great history to the building. Breakfasts have improved and the 24 hour gym is really valuable.

    Hello can anyone share a Wheeley code with me?

    Well I’m pleased to confirm an email has just arrived:

    The 25,000 points you requested as part of your IHG® Rewards Spire Elite benefits have been added to your account.

    A lot of effort but the benefit is still available!

    Having qualified on points as Spire again, I’ve sent four emails and the representatives just avoid answering the question when they respond. Instead they confirm I’m Spire from requalifying (thank you for confirming what I already know) or tell me I haven’t reached enough nights or points this year! Tried calling today and got passed around and around. Eventually spoke to someone who has made ‘a case file’ as I should have received the points. Whether they will turn up in my account I’m unsure.

    I’ve stayed a couple of times and it really is a wonderful experience- especially in the summer with the outside pool!

    I’ve been to both. The Liverpool DT is compact but very good. Nice central hotel but now sadly charge Diamond members £15. The Crowne Plaza is probably a better option or the Marriott both with much larger pools. The Chester DT spa is much bigger than Liverpool and FOC and probably better overall for a stay over a few days.
