Usually when I go away with work I stay in Travelodge, Premier Inn or Holiday Inn, nothing fancy, not luxurious or extravagant. I was very excited to see that this weeks stay was somewhere new and even more excited once I googled the venue and discovered it looked like this
oooohhhh going up in the world Shaz.
On arrival I was shown to my room which was in a complex outside the main building. I climbed some rather grubby carpeted stairs. In the corridor outside my room were four empty beer bottles, a pair of dirty socks and a dinner tray! Nice. The first thing that I noticed once I entered room 58 was the ticking clock, this was located in the bathroom! How odd. I have never been in any bathroom in a hotel or home that has a clock in it. I assumed once I walked down the room that it would open up in to a bigger space. But no. This was the smallest room I have stayed in ever. Also the coldest due to the window being open and even when closed there was a huge draught. I put the heating on and climbed in to bed fully clothed. The company had paid £98 for this luxury
I think the mould was a nice touch!
By far the worse ‘double’ room I have stayed in. A few communications the next day and the room fee was refunded! Fortunately the breakfast and lunch at the Hotel were very nice and even more importantly for the work aspect of the day the internet was good.
No doubt I will be back, but think I will book in for the night at the hotel down the road!
Tonight was a 1 mile run with hubby. Probably not best to talk about DIY plans whilst doing this. Running is meant to lower your blood pressure not raise it.
