The London International Airshow was being held on the weekend of September 16th. My wife and I decided to stay for the long weekend. We stayed at the Best Western Lamplighters Inn. We were not disappointed. The Inn is much larger and more luxurious than we had thought. One has a a welcoming first impression when one arrives. There are well dressed, very professional staff to greet you upon check in. Our room was a nice size and well appointed. It is a small point but entry into the room is easy. Just a tap card as opposed to the dreaded slot sliding lock. The room was very clean and modern.
The pool area is very special. It is huge! The area has a tropical feel with palm trees and all sorts of tropical fauna. There is a waterslide and importantly, there are 2 lifeguards on duty. I could easily imagine families staying during the winter for a weekend getaway.
The restaurant adjoining is very good as well. It has a great menu and is very reasonable. "Shelly's Bar and Grill" is the name.
Impressions? The London Internatioal Airshow is the best military airshow in North America and the Best Western Lamplighter is the place to stay for the weekend. less
