1: "A potential DEATH THREAT!" at a B&B
Posted Feb 19, 2017
Trying to get a reservation at this B&B was a fiasco & my stay there put me in possible MORTAL danger.
My comments are NOT a hysterical reaction of a disgruntled client . I am a retired 71 year old physician & I have had the good fortune to have travelled world wide in the past 16 yrs & stayed in a wide range of hotel/ B&B classes.
As the result of difficulty booking this B&B on the Net via Expedia,their agent made the booking for me. This took 75 mins. to complete I had further business to complete. At 2200hrs.I found the B&B with difficulty. The B&B sign & house number weren't illuminated. No one would answer the door & the door telephone just took me to an answering machine. It was only with the help of the police was I able to contact the manager who had to drive 30' to reach the hotel. I was settled in my room by 0100hrs.
I needed a bath. The room had a very large Jacuzzi bath in a small alcove in the room. The bath was, when filled with water, about 2.5 feet deep. To get into the bath, one had to step up 2 steps tiled with a smooth, shiny, ? quartz like finish. There wasn't any evidence of any non-slip matts being available. There was 1 hand hold at the tap end of the bath that was screwed into the wall, 2 feet above the tiled floor which, ( I am 6'1" tall.) There weren't any other hand holds on or near the bath.
I ended up falling into the bath! Struggling to get out took 10 mins. I stood up & my feet slipped & I fell across the floor "ONLY" spraining my L wrist !!
