I joined BD
as a CSA in 1999 before moving into load control & traffic. I was originally based at MME
then moved down to MAN
where I worked for just under 4 years.
When I did my induction course with BD
they used to put us up in the Renaissance on Bath Road - very nice indeed. Sadly, they moved us to somewhere crappier and the hotels have just got worse since then - Travelodge, Comfort Inn (the worst), etc. When I left BD
a couple of years ago they were using the Premier Travel Inn on Bath Road - a slight improvement on the previous couple of hotels. But yeah the food is always crappy and over-priced at most of these LHR
Still, there is a pub in an estate within walking distance of the Premier Travel Inn called the Pheasant. That is probably the best option for somewhere to go locally on a night.
Cainanuk - do I know you? When did you join BD
? I left in May 2005. Send me an e-mail if you like.
