disagree - they were at a hotel
16 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just wanted to add my 2 cents. I could see other reviewers were debating some bits of this episode... I loved the episode and got the impression they were staying in a hotel. My only question is were they visiting from another part of the UK, or were they traveling over from the US? Great episode - very sad ending. Van Johnson is great in it. It is a shame that this episode is not on the DVD - it is my personal favorite. Sorry to keep harping on - I can't seem to submit my review unless it is over 10 lines even though I have said everything I wanted. Geez.. Just wanted to add my 2 cents.
