On approaching Beaches I felt an overwhelming sense of dread, which only increased as I entered the establishment. A smell of cabbage and dogs assaulted my poor nostrils as I was led up to my room. I entered the room and was greeted by mismatched furniture and bed linen, an ancient carpet and a rusty old storage heater. I was instantly VERY disappointed. On further inspection I found the television was directly above the bed, making viewing almost impossible. As I opened the door to what I believed to be the ensuite, I found a smaller room, again horribly mismatched with demonic cuddly toys eyeballing me from the corner. An opressive, dated bathroom awaited. What a surprise(!) Depressed and dejected, I decided to attempt sleep. To my sheer horror the sheets were damp, which the proprietor later blamed on the torrential rain they had the previous night. Ridiculous! After a thoroughly awful night's sleep I wanted to leave immediately, happily omitting the breakfast. This establishment is NOT worth the rates it charges. Desperately in need of a visit from The Hotel Inspector! AVOID!
