Isn't China on the Other Side of the World?

I knew essentially nothing about the Weetwood Hotel before arriving in Leeds, other than it was where members of the International Working Group were staying. Desi, though, did a little advance scouting, and informed me that it is a four-star hotel.

This is yet another example of how standards of luxury vary from place to place, from country to country. (The Chinese Tibetan Medicine Hotel, a real dodgy accommodation, was advertised as three stars!) The room was small (but nice). The bathroom was small (but nice). The bed was small (top sheet not provided!).

The Palmer House Hilton this was not! (With apologies to the fantastic staff...)
