Not a pleasant suprise

We arrived after a harrowing drive from Dover with two hours of stop and go traffic that turned a 4 hour drive into 6. It was 85 and muggy. We didn't expect air conditioning but the small fan in the room didn't help much. I'd booked via e-mail and asked for a king or twin beds on the ground floor but got a double bed on the first floor with no elevator and 3 steps up to a bath with no shower. Not good for my husband who needs both knees replaced - he almost didn't make it out of the tub. The bed didn't have a top sheet and it was too hot to try to sleep together. Luckily the room was large enough for me to sleep on top of the duvet on the floor with a damp towel over me. The ceiling had a large patch of plaster hanging down and while we were hoping for rain to cool it off, we didn't know if the ceiling would hold up if it did. The whole place had a Fawlty Towers feeling about it. While the two African grey parrots were a nice touch, the money would have been better spent on sprucing up the place. Castle Lodge Hotel is rated 3 diamonds so I didn't expect anything like this. $130 will get you a nice room in a Holiday Inn or other motel chain in the US in a city the size of Ely - somethng that doesn't seem to exist in England, so it was quite a shock to pay 75 pounds for something that wouldn't even be rated in the US.
