For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.

4005New guest ... becoming returning guest
"I'll be back in about a month - see you then" - and a cheerful wave from a departing guest. That's lovely - customers voting for us with their feet, and not unusual.

2925Well House - the pictures
Wow - Google have done it again. I was surprised when I did an "image search" a few days ago to get a new, clean, effective display of images when I was looking for some stock art with which to illustrate a previous article. Impressed, yes, but of course I asked "what do we look like" and so I searched ...

1808We love children ... but our hotel is not going to be their scene
"What's your cheapest double room. Can you put a cot in there? How big are your family rooms". Oh dear - we're business accommodation and not a family hotel, and potential guests who are on the phone to us asking these questions wouldn't be happy with us, and would save money staying elsewhere. But ...
1748Hotel room prices - Melksham, Wiltshire

1701Training Course and Business Conference Technology
When a new technology comes out, it's described as "leading edge" - it tends to be very expensive, and whilst it functions it does so with limitations that make its adoption limited - by only those people who really need the technology and / or are prepared to put up with its restrictions. When I was ...
1676A warm welcome for visitors from the USA
As a hotel, we're here to provide a service to our customers ... and that service includes making them feel at "home away from home", perhaps on their first visit to the UK.

902Brand new hotel and training centre, Melksham
Our first full week at Well House Manor - and what a week it was! The hotel opened for guests last week, and this week for our public courses.

1520Terms and Conditions - Hotel, England - plain English
With our hotel getting busier every month, and with advertising in place to fill rooms at weekends and holidays when our training courses are not in full swing, it seems a good time to update our terms and conditions. On one hand, I wanted to cover almost every eventuality, but on the other hand I wanted ...
1164Grand Central Station
"Grand Central Station" answered the voice on the other end of the phone, with an American accent. Had I mis-dialled, or was I really looking for train times out of New York? No - this was a call I made into the office and Lisa, who moved from the USA 10 years ago next January, had recognised my number ...
1089Playing old games
We've provided "etchasketch", jigsaws and packs of cards in the library for our guest's use ... and although many of our visitors prefer the more modern attractions of 50 TV channels or the Internet, there are occasions that they enjoy an old fashioned change. There's the game of Life and Scrabble ...
1059Three sets of twins
I've heard it said that a hotel sets up a bedroom as a single if there isn't room for a double bed in the room, and as a double if there isn't room for twin beds. But our doubles aren't like that - we provide mostly double room since people, even on their own, usually LIKE a double bed. But we can ...
963George Hotel and Well House Manor, Melksham
The George Hotel, Melksham, stood on the corner or Lowborne and Bath Road - prime real estate in the town centre; alas, it was demolished around 60 years ago to make way for a modern (then) parade of shops which now are showing their age and considered to something of an eyesore in many of our Vistas. ...

Here's a tiny post from the eye of the storm. "Well House Manor" opens its doors to paying guests in the next couple of days, and we're in a flurry. Looking REALLY good but not enough hours to tell you all about it this morning! But I can tell you it's looking really exciting. ...

Ever been in a hotel and looked at the exchange rate they're offering to convert your pounds to their local currency, and shuddered? Or looked at the rates offered by hotels in England and wondered if they're ripping off the overseass visitor? Well - the boot's on the other foot now as we work out ...
857Strikingly busy
How do we manage this? We introduce something new and we're rushed off our feet - not that I'm complaining in the slightest! And so it is with our Hotel. Although we're not open until next month, we've got every room pencilled in already for one of the courses that month, and also for Geekmas as the ...
844Hotel, Melksham, Wiltshire
"When you're advertising your hotel, DON'T list out all the features such as the fact that all rooms are en-suite - people EXPECT that as standard these days" so came the recent advise from a marketing guru. He's probably right ... so I'm going to tell you today what's different about Well House Manor, ...
717A customer service company
"We're a customer service company who happens to be in the computer training industry". So said the sign stuck on the wall at a training centre where I was a guest presenter a few weeks ago. The words were the right ones for them, and they're right for us too, but their actions based on those words were ...
Why "residential"? We've spent this weekend planing Well House Manor - the facilities and services we should be offering in our new business hotel for Melksham, and that word kept cropping up. Well House Manor should be a home for our business travellers away from home - somewhere that's their residence ...
