I was staying over in a hotel recently – one of those positioned in the budge friendly end of the market. I only paid a small amount for the room because I had loyalty points to use up. On the whole it was a splendid room, considering we were right in the city centre and had absolutely everything we could need right at our feet. The bathroom facilities were excellent in that the taps all worked first time and did not drip at all when shut off. The shower was large – the entire width of the bathroom – and it had a really easy to operate shower. This is one thing that always worries me when i try to shower anywhere that isn’t my home. Because my eyesight is appalling without specs on, and my hands are very arthritic, I struggle with controls that have to be turned on and off and if I can’t work out how to adjust the temperature, or even get water at all, then it’s just not enjoyable or relaxing.
