    On the horns of a dilemma...

    On the horns, WS1...

    My contract's up for renewal next month and the PTB are making noises about my relocating to London.

    Needless to say that a daily commute will not be possible so, how do you chaps organise your accomodation for The Smoke?

    Do you stay at Reading and use the train? (Not that keen on this idea - what's the point of working in London and not making the most of it?).

    You can see I need help on this...

    A few times I've been staying at the Down Hall Country House Hotel and driving in.

    If I'm in the City I stay up in Doncaster, train to Kings X, taxi or tube.

    Depends on mood.

        ..as opposed to "Got the horn"...

        Sorry WS, thought you were a possible successor to RR in the smut stakes.

        My mistake.

          Thought so, but decided to check anyway

          I have no idea who RR is, but I see my reputation is established. My work here is done :b

            ..not quite.

            It wouldn't have occurred to Roger Rabbit to check - he'd have been straight in (Phnarr, Phnarr...)

            But you're getting there.

            (I do miss him tho'.. :\ )

              At least the accommodation would be cheap. Anyone need a guesthouse in Doncaster pop along to Threaded's place.

              Free use of the Lambo too.
              (If you can find it)

              Spod.

                Cojak,

                A few of my fellow contractors here come from outside of London and they tend to stay at a hotel near Paddington (there are loads), and try to negociate a good rate with the hotel manager (if you stay like 3 months or something then you have some bargaining power)

                I can ask around for some specific hotel recommendations if you like

                    Presumably you are being compensated well for this. Remeber to factor in travel to and from London, the cost of meals and something to compensate for the fact that you will be away from your wife/kids for most of the week. Although the last bit may prove to be a bonus.
