S:So what do you think we should do for our anniversary?Should we stay in a hotel or go backpacking in a park?
J:I'm too old to go backpacking.Let's saty in a B&B in a scenic spot.
S:Since the weather is supposed to be nice,why don't we stay at a hotel with an outdoo r swimming pool?
J:That's a good idea.I know of a reasonably priced hotel with a swimming pool that's ju st a stone's throw away from Hyde Park.
S:That's an execllent location!It must be one of the only hotels with an outdoor swimm ing pool in the heart of London!
J:They're also known for their huge breakfasts that keep you going all day.
S:We can eat to our heart's content in the morning and then spend the rest of the day in the pool.
J:Should I call them to make a reservation then?
S:You might as well see if they have any vacancies.Do they take credit cards? J:Let me just check their website to find out. S:Well?
J:Let's see.It says that breakfast is included,car parking is available,taxes are included i n the price,there's free internet access,and yes,credit cards are accepted.
S:Fantastic.Let's bookit for Saturday night then.And find out what time we canchecki n so we can make as much use of the pool as possible!
J:I've booked the room for Saturday night. S:What time can we check in?
J;We can check in at 2:00 in the afternoon. S:What about check-out?
J:Check out is at 11:00 a.m.,but you can request a late check-out for an extraf10.Shoul d we do that?
S:Why not?Then we can sleep in and relax by the pool before we head back home. J:Lockers are also available for luggage near the pool facilities,so we could spend the e ntire afternoon at the pool,even after check-out.
S:In that case,we won't need to pay for a late check-out.
J:Let'sjust wait and see how we feel.We might want to sleep in on Sunday morning. S:That's a good deal.How about internet access?Is it available in the rooms? J:Unfortunately not.They only offer free internet and WiFi access in the lobby. S:That's alright.We won't really need it anyway,will we?
J:No,I think we'll manage going without internet access for a night! S:How are we going to get there?Should we take the bus? J:Since they offer free parking,let's just drive.
S:Ok.What time to do think we should hit the road on Saturday?
J:If we leave by noon,we should be able to get there by 2:00.What do you think? S:Maybe we should leave at 11:00.That way,we'll have time to stop for lunch before we get to the hotel.
J:11:00 it is then!Go pack your bags!
