Overnight stay for work at Sizewell
I stayed with a business colleague at the Bell for one night while working at Sizewell Power Station for a couple of days. Parking is in the market place and cost us a pound cash for each car. The hotel staff were great when we arrived and the room was fine for me (my colleague was in a twin room). We had a wander round the town and out into the country before a good wholesome evening meal. We needed an early (0730hrs) breakfast so we ended-up with a yogurt, bacon sandwiches, juice and a takeaway tea. All okay but would have preferred a fry-up. Would I say again? Yes.
