“Thank you Fawlty!”
Reviewed August 8, 2004

We stayed at the Kings Arm Hotel while on a Trafalger Tour. Of 19 nights that we spent on tour, this was without a doubt the worst of the hotels at which we stayed. And the tour promised first class accomodations! This was more like third.! Our room was on an upper floor, but we only took the lift (elevator) once as it was so ancient that it felt and sounded as though we would be trapped in it! Our room was quite small (okay, we know that the older hotels have small rooms) and it overlooked the back door to the kitchen was was quite noisey. We went to take a shower and much to our surprise there was no shower, only a bathtub. When I went to call the desk to arrange for a wake-up call since there was no clock in our room, I found no phone in the room (only one in the hall). I went to the desk and he said that the staff would knock on our door. Our two meals in the restaurant were adequate, but don't ask for anything special, most of the wait staff can not speak English! When I left the key at the desk upon checkout, I could not resist and said, "Thank you Fawlty!"
