I am not really keen on bed and breakfast places and would much rather stay in a hotel with a bar and other amenities. Or maybe an apartment or perhaps a villa in the Algarve like one we once stayed in one January? It even had it's own swimming pool.
I'm watching Holiday Homes In The Sun on channel 5 every tea time this week. Yesterday it was Woolacombe in Devon and tonight it's Sintra near Lisbon. They jogged my memory of some of the b and b's I have stayed on my travels. I didn't pay the prices they pay on that programme. Tenner a night was more my price.
Going totally on a tangent and kind off subject. Did you know that the sitcom Rising Damp was set in Yorkshire? No nor did I. Well I will go to the foot of our stairs.
A Kent B and B in February.
Once we decided to go to Kent in the snow in February for a few days like you do? It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted summat to do. So we drove to Kent.
We had found the B and B advert in an old Lady magazine and duly knocked on the door and were greeted by two old ladies. They looked me and the wife up and down and said:
"What's your name and address? You sound like you come from up North? Why have you come down here in the snow? We have to report any bookings to the police you could be terrorists you know?"
We carried our bags to a downstairs bedroom.
"S'pose you'll be wanting yer breakfast in the morning? We don't have a dining room. We'll bring it on a tray to your bedroom in the morning. Ten o'clock sharp mind".
We sat on the bed and laughed when they had gone. " How odd" we both said.
Ten o'clock sharp next morning there was a knock on the door.
Have you ever stayed in any strange bed and breakfast establishments?
