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.

Jersey Nightmare
After searching around for a hotel to take two small children to, we thought we'd found an ideal place.. .. family room, brochure photo looked idyllic (how do they do that?) price was right.

We got there and were foolishly surprised to find a 3 lane main road running past the hotel. But it's ok we thought because all of the windows are double glazed.. ..

Got to the room using the only working lift in the hotel that stopped working if more than 3 people were in it.

The room itself was a fabulous design.. .. just right for a family. The TV was on a wall bracket above the cot, the bunk beds were so close to the toilet / shower that you almost had to climb through the bottom bunk to use them, and for the parents? Two single beds.
And it was hot. Very hot. So hot that it was impossible to sleep at night without opening the windows and having the traffic keep you awake.

Apologies for lack of humour / entertainment.. .. it's me first post!
