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.

Pub-stroke-B'n'B near Morecambe, can't remember the name. Shame.

Arrived at night so didn't see the sign for their car-park on the opposite side of the road. So we parked in front of the pub, in what appeared to be a pull-in for such purpose.

Next morning we saw loads of hairy bikers in the bar. Then we went outside and saw LOADS of hairy bikers and LOADS of hairy bikers' bikes - all surrounding our car.

There was virtually no effort made to move for us - the ones who were obviously accountants and only "bad" at the weekend were the worst. But it needed loads to move - and we just couldn't talk the talk.

For a brief moment we did consider pushing our way out - our Range Rover had plenty of power. But we didn't fancy getting a bike stuck under the wheels as even the meekest biker would soon have pulled our arms off.

So we went back inside, explained the situation. Seconds later the fire-breathing harridan of a land-lady came out and laid down the law. And the bikers parted like a bunch of pussies.*

Unfortunately that was the only redeeming thing about the place. Otherwise it was sh*t.

* - we kept this thought to ourselves.

(This is my first ever post. Hope you liked it. It is, at least, 100% true. Therefore unlikely to win the "Best of"... ;-) )
