Oh, I was so pleased to get home! As soon as I asked the taxi driver to take me to the Campanile and he laughed, and mentioned "like something out of Psycho" I knew that there was something up. I really didn't realise that such places still exist -a draughty, exposed block of chalet-type rooms where bedroom doors open straight out onto windswept outdoor corridors and the elements. It reminded me of "Crossroads Motel" but without any staff, so more like a cheap motel from an American horror film, just as the taxi driver had mentioned. I felt very insecure because the reception-bar-place was the other side of the car park and my room door looked as though it had been kicked in more than once, and the lock was missing. It reminded me of a stay at Butlins on a school trip when I was little in the 1970s, and this place seems to have been built - and neglected - since that decade. OK, it had a television and hot water - but do we have to feel so impressed with that? I did manage to find the single electric socket behind the curtain, so I could charge my phone, but I didn't feel safe and I so wished that I had booked the Travelodge, which is new and set right beside the lake, as I stayed there in April. I thought that the Campanile looked nice in the photos, but when I got there, I realised that a few hanging baskets can really deceive me. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. We live and learn!
