I have just returned from my seventh consecutive holiday at the Pericles Hotel, and quite by accident have found this website. I wish that I hadn't as my blood pressure has become unhealthily high. Pity really, as I have just spent a week fully relaxing.
Anyway, enough about silly old me.
At the end of your first posting yo write; "enough said there's more but I can't be botherd"
I feel you are doing your modesty a disservice, as you have managed to bother on a further 10 occasions subsequent to this. Each if I may say so, with no offence intended, in a relatively condescending manner.
Indeed, as I write, I am already eagerly awaiting the little jolly pearls of wisdom your arrogance will ensure I receive.
Lets apply some logic here:
Virtually every posting on this website is of holidaymakers sufficiently impressed to put words to print to express happy experiences.
Then, taking the generally accepted theory that the majority of people write to complain and seldom congratulate, one can conclude that the Pericles Hotel is obviously a very nice place to be.
Now for my own experiences:
As stated earlier in this piece, I have just returned from my seventh visit to said establishment, and had already booked for 2 weeks next year to celebrate my 40th birthday. Along with my lovely wife (I would never insult mine to show off) I shall be accompanied by a further 22 guests (including 6 children and our parents) because the Hotel is good enough to satisfy the requirements of 3 generations of my family. How many Hotels can claim that?
I do not understand your motives for using such an "acid tongue" not just in your original posting, but in your replies to those who have dared to question your thoughts. I also believe that freedom of speech should be removed from those who abuse it, particularly when it borders on libellous.
The management and staff of the Pericles have become through their friendliness, warmth and charm (look the last one up in the dictionary) very close personal friends of mine over the years, and when you insult them, you are insulting me by association.
I am actually fairly sure that you are enjoying all of this attention, and are purposely being mischievous and looking to goad a response for your enjoyment. (Is your real name Sir Alex Ferguson)
If so, you have my congratulations on a job very well done!
Sadly I wasn't a professional footballer with Pompey. That was Robbie Pethick (no relation)
My own football abilities are more akin to Fowler (Pauline!!)
