On arrival we were greeted by a man who constantly shouted "Margaret! Customers!" this immediately made us feel at home. We were then told that we need to go to another hotel in order to get a parking Pass, to which I have never seen as many disclaimer signs saying "we are not responsible for your car". Once "Margaret" had finished her cigarette, by the smell of her, she led us up to our room. When halfway up the stairs my son said to me "Dad, it smells like a hamsters cage here" and to be honest I think a hamsters cage would have been luxury compared to this. Once in our room we were asked "do you think you'll need any towels?" Now I'm not a spoiled and by no means up my own [--] but surely a towel is not to much to ask for in a room? When we returned from a day out in the equally disgusting Blackpool we were greeted with the news that the heating would not be on due to it being nearly summer. My son had bunk beds to himself, which was a god send as he needed the two duvets to try and get a heat during the night. In the morning I couldn't get the image of this woman with yellow cigarette stained hair hanging over my breakfast with a fag butt in her gub. So we hit the road at our first opportunity to pastures new! And do yourself a favour by not visiting the 1940's "bar".
