Makes Fawlty Towers look like a nice place to stay
Some things never change!
The Lonsdale makes Fawlty Towers look like a nice place to stay!
My elderly mother and I stayed in this dump back in September 1984.
We had what was supposed to be the “best room” in the hotel, it was in back of the kitchen with no view out the window, noisy in the morning (when one was trying to sleep) and had only a “pi$$ed-in” sink (the toilet was down the hall and the bathtub was upstairs).
Can you believe this place came with the recommendation of a travel agent!
The breakfast was highly greasy and a “heart attack on a plate”, the staff proved to be arrogant and mostly unfriendly. I left my Michelin London Guide book on the bed in my room and when I returned in the evening it went “missing”, when I told the manager he made it clear he didn’t give a sh!t (he was a Monty Python stereotype of the Upper Class Twit of the Year).
Moreover, on our last night I returned independent of my mother around 11:00pm and rang the front door bell for the desk clerk to let me in for almost 15 minutes, finally another guest let me in (24 hour front desk is a crock). The Canadian snot that was the desk clerk then came out to demand to know what I was doing in this hotel. When I told her, I was staying there and “thank you” for coming to let me in. She told me I should have asked for another key on check-in, thanks for telling me on my last night dipsh!t!
Folks, pay a little more money and stay in a better place for what may well be an once-in-a-lifetime trip to London, this place proved depressing.
