On Thursday 24 November Chloe Rowlings, Louise Symons, Rebecca Watson and I went to Bath to experience how hospitality differs around the country. At 3.45 pm on Thursday we caught a train to Bath. It was a very fun experience for all of us. We had to make two transfers on the way up one - at Bristol Temple Meads and one at Westbury. We arrived in Bath at roughly 8.00 pm and walked to the Hilton Hotel where we were staying. The first impression for all of us was "wow" - the hotel was immaculate with a concierge and lounge bar area and we were all stunned. After arriving at the hotel we put our luggage in our rooms which were also amazing with all the trimmings such as complimentary soaps, tea and coffee in the room. We then all got dressed smartly ready for our three course meal which was absolutely delicious. We finished our meal at about 10.40 pm and by that time we were all ready for bed after four hours on a train.

We got up between 7.00 and 8.00 am ready for breakfast at 8.15 am which we all said was rather early! Breakfast was incredible with a choice of fruit, cereal, cheese or bread for starters and then an English breakfast to finish off. We then had a tour around the hotel with the manager, showing us all the different parts of the hotel and how it is run. We all thought that the tour was very informative and has given us good advice for our later careers.

After we had finished the tour and packed our bags, we took a trip into Bath's town centre to have a look at all the different hospitality - related businesses. The atmosphere was lovely in the town of Bath with all the different Christmas shops. At lunchtime we went to a little place called the River Canteen which as you might have guessed was based by the river! The food was lovely and after lunch we had a last look around the town before we had to leave Bath. We all thought that it was a great experience and we all agreed we would love to go back there again.

We would like to thank Roseanne Chapman (Penrice Catering Teacher) and Sarah Bruce (College tutor) for their organisation of the trip.
