This is a question Hotel Splendido

Enzyme writes, "what about awful hotels, B&Bs, or friends' houses where you've had no choice but to stay the night?"

What, the place in Oxford that had the mattresses encased in plastic (crinkly noises all night), the place in Blackpool where the night manager would drum to the music on his ipod on the corridor walls as he did his rounds, or the place in Lancaster where the two single beds(!) collapsed through metal fatigue?

Add your crappy hotel experiences to our list.

Queens Hotel
I'm starting to remember quite a few dodgy hotel stories now.

Queens Hotel in North London is always quite an experience. Exposed carpet tacks waiting to cut your feet during the night; exposed wiring on the lights; the cupboard in the downstairs room that opens to reveal the main electrical distribution point.

Still, it's not so bad really, as it's dirt cheap and in a reasonable part of London. Perfect for groups of drunken lads.

Last time we were there, my friend's disappearance into his room was followed by the kind of smashing glass sound you hear in a Tom & Jerry cartoon. We went rushing in to see what had happened, and apparently when he opened the window the glass fell out.

I have pictorial evidence of the experience here:

The offending window
Broken glass

I can't wait until we stay there again!

I love how the cover isn't even on the main fusebox. Could have had all sorts of fun removing fuses.....
