The real Fawlty Towers?
How bad can it be?! It's called Waters Edge Hotel, well its not near the waters edge, and if you're unfortunate enough to be allocated a room at the back of the hotel, your view is a white wall about six feet from the window. The carpet was filthy, the bathroom was very mouldy and grimey, the shower itself had mould and spmeone elses hair in it. There was no shower gel or shampoo any way. (not that we would have gone in). A plug socket din't work, the curtains were hanging off, so we couldn't draw them properly. The bed I'm sure had an old straw mattress, it was the worst bed I've ever slept on - well, I say slept!! Every floorboard in the hotel creaks, so you could not have slept for the noise of people just moving about anyway! The noise from the floor of the room upstairs was awesome. The flush on our toilet wouldn't stop.....Oh, and you cannot park properly. Torquays nice though! No breakfast available,
