Hotel from hell

Location: Sandbanks has one of the highest retail land values in the world. This hotel should be condemned. But, the boats are nice to look at.
The room was unclean. The bathroom door did not open fully as it stuck against the floor. This meant to use, one had to squeeze between the door jam and the door. A rusty nail was found on the bathroom floor, after it had been trodden on with a bare foot. The shower could not be used due to the intense smell and existence of mould. Due to us leaving early we were told a continental breakfast would be prepared that we could take away. The poor night porter knew nothing of this in the morning. He did his best. Having paid a lot of money to stay here, including the heavy e- bookers fee, I feel we should have our money returned. I could go on but my time is worth more.
