We arrived early evening and the place was closed. I had to contact someone through the intercom on the street. The intercom is as old as the hotel, sounds like one of your grandfather's 78s, and cuts out after a minute. I had to call in twice to ask about parking (answer: wherever). No staff inside, Just an envelope with my name on it and a key inside. Incidentally, how hard would it be to include a small map and instructions for parking in the envelope with the key?
We got up to the room (two bedroom suite). In retrospect, we should have left right there, but we had driven quite away and were tired.
It has that smell ... you know when something bad has happened and they keep spraying powerful odour-killing sprays everywhere which have that sickly sweet aroma? Well, the place smells like that.
The bedrooms are barely bigger than the bed.
The TV is so small and the couch so far away it is like watching TV on your ipod, but not as clear.
The kitchen ... The distance between the worktop and the wall cabinet is so small that anyone over 5 foot has to cook all hunched over. Think Quasimodo frying an egg.
The actual cooking surface is a two burner hob. But the frying pan is bigger than the hob so it won't touch the hot surface. There is no oven.
There is one sharp knife. I tried to cut a tomato with it but ended up mangling it so badly it scared the kids. I'd have been better off using a teaspoon.
In the morning, we found that two of our party were especially appealing to some kind of bug that lived there, having woken up with itchy red welts.
We checked out as soon as we could.
