I had booked this offer and to be honest nearly forgot about it. After reading the reviews I nearly did not book and waste the money however I am glad I did not. The room was ok , it was very dark and the sink did not empty but otherwise good. I went for a swim and friendly staff , I wonder why village chain make guest get out of the jacuzzi when the bubbles go off though? Virgin active have never done this? The meal was good and wine nice.

The former K. He has captured headlines by claiming that Harry L. Hopkins, Franklin D. Roosevelt s trusted friend and adviser, was an "agent of major significance" of the Soviet Union. What is infuriating is how the West ern press is aiding Mr.
Gordievsky s efforts to craft a best-seller. In the excerpts of his book, "KGB: The Inside Story," I have seen, he never calls Mr. Hopkins a spy. Yet headline writers do. The book says, "Hopkins was an American patriot with no admiration for either the principle or the practice of the Communist state. What deeds did Mr. Hopkins commit that may, in the popular mind, attach the monicker "spy" to him? According to Mr. Gordievsky, who was in knickers when Mr.
Hopkins died in , the former social worker advocated positions favored by Moscow. More specifically, Mr. Hopkins is accused of influencing the U. I hope Mr. Gordievsky provided more accurate information than this to British intelligence during the two decades he was allegedly a double agent. As Mr. Gordievsky hits the book promotion trail, perhaps he can explain why he did not identify Winston Churchill as a Soviet agent.
After all, Mr. Churchill entered into the highly secret, ill-advised "percentages" agreement with Stalin in October , conceding major portions of Central and Eastern Europe to Soviet domination. Such cynical "spheres of influence" were anathema to Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Hopkins refused to allow the White House to dispatch a cable to Mr. Churchill -- drafted by the Joint Chiefs and approved by the President -- out of fear that it might be construed as American approval for Churchill to enter into such arrangements with Stalin.
In May , Mr. Hopkins warned Stalin to his face that "the entire structure of world cooperation and relations with the Soviet Union would be destroyed" if he would not allow a free Poland to emerge from the ashes of war, as he had promised to do at Yalta. View all New York Times newsletters. Gordievsky indicts Mr. Hopkins for a post-Yalta euphoria. But as Sir John Martin, Mr.
Churchill s principal private secretary, who was there told me, everyone, British and American alike, believed in the immediate aftermath of Yalta that they had just fashioned an enduring blueprint for peace and freedom. After five years of war, maybe they were entitled to a moment of euphoria. Like Senator McCarthy, if Mr. Gordievsky is to prosper he must make news. But the other revelations in his long-awaited book are rather thin gruel. He "solves" the insipid hunt for the so-called fifth man in the Kim Philby, Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt spy circle by offering up an individual who confessed to being a Soviet agent nearly 25 years ago.
And his salutation to Julius and Ethel Rosenberg as "dedicated and courageous Soviet agents" merely echoes the more authoritative voice of Nikita S. George C. Marshall predicted that Mr. Hopkins s enormous contributions to his country would never be appreciated. Please upgrade your browser. See next articles. View page in TimesMachine.

Peak District Hotel - Review of Newton House
We are a walking group of around 20 people and stayed at the hotel for a weekend of walking in the Peak District. The hotel made us very welcome and comfortable with great rooms and superb breakfasts. We had a great time and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. After visiting Newton house last year on a Kgb deal, we thought we would give it a try again this year and took my parents back with us. We were met at reception by friendly staff, and having checked in was asked if we wanted a cooked breakfast, 2 of our party did, and then we were asked for money up front and then given a white table number with our room on.
Our room was clean, warm and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful even offering to brush all of the snow off our car.
This is a guest house that feels more like a hotel. Great location for walking, or site seeing. The Tissington Trail is just out the back garden. The staff are all very friendly, although you are left to your own devises in the evening. They do not open the bar, but as long as you know you can make your own arrangements.

A Soviet Agent? Harry Hopkins?
We too had difficulty redeeming a KGB deal for a 2 night stay at Newton House, but everything was sorted out by us before the stay following a patient explanation from the new owner. This place is no looker from the outside, but it is a very old property so I suppose that s to be expected to some extent. The family rooms are located in a section away from the main hotel and are actually quite good given the very low price paid. They are nicely decorated on the whole,with clean beds and nice shower rooms but a bit of extra dusting probably wouldn t go amiss. Yes, the breakfast was limited in terms of times of availability and choice, but absolutely fine for our needs and at the price we paid, it would be churlish to complain. The staff were pleasant and helpful so on the whole, a perfectly acceptable place to stay as long as you don t expect too much. We had a most enjoyable stay, very comfortable and nicely appointed room 6. The new owner and staff most friendly and welcoming. Although the full "English Breakfast" not available, the breakfast options were excellent , perfectly adequate and enjoyed. The Mayhews, Wivenhoe.
Suburban New Jersey home of married KGB agents who inspired The Americans TV show goes on market
By Daily Mail Reporter. The beige colonial boasts four bedrooms, an updated kitchen - and the chance to own a slice of Russian spy history that inspired the new television series The Americans. The U. Marshals Service is selling a Montclair, New Jersey, home whose previous owners were arrested in by the FBI and accused of being members of a Russian spy ring. Authorities said the home s former occupants went by the aliases Richard and Cynthia Murphy and led what appeared to be a banal suburban life. Spies den:
