the paint job and the brick structure make one building stand from the other. i wondered why entire rows of buildings would be built joining each other and was informed that the reason was to minimize heat losses from the buildings in winter.
Chris: Winter heat loss is a serious subject Ayush

I did a "little google" and I noticed that the hotels are all over the place. This looks like a pretty good "chain".
Chris: Yes it's a fine chain Astrid. This one is in Dorchester

I some times enjoyed this hotel chain- but this one is a BEST WESSEX!
Chris: Oh yes Philine, your suggestion is a fine one

I would have thought that a flag have been erected in honour of your visit. I've stayed in a Best Western hotel when in Bandon, Oregon.
Chris: WHAAAT!!

That's not in Wessex!
I have stayed in one or two of their establishments...when I wasn't paying
Chris: What exactly are you inferring?

Wessex has some of the finest hotels to be found Tiff.
Chris: Your very words are jewels of pure truth Chad

Not the sort of place that a hard working public sector worker could afford.
Chris: Clearly this isn't spoken from personal experience

The Royal Hotel - once was the most common hotel name in SA. Not many are left.

Did you know that there once was a Wessex Regiment. Apparently it was dissolved in 1995 when the Queen thought of the possibility of a Wexit.
Chris: Good grief, The Royal Wexiteers must be reformed pronto!

Good plain signage!
Chris: Designed to be decoded by those who are unsure
Nice to see the Wessex name still being used.
Chris: Yes it is
We stayed in their Malmsbury Hotel, it was very nice.........but not in Wessex smile
Chris: Wessex spreads its wings then..
