Our first aid course was in Oxford and we stayed in a charming B&B called Nanford Guest House.
We did a quick search online to find the address on our way there, and upon seeing some reviews for the first time we realised our fatal error – the Nanford guest house has been voted the dirtiest hotel in Britain. Having stayed there I can say the review was quite kind, as you could probably extend the geographic region to include the rest of Europe. It will also be the benchmark on our trip and I imagine we could extend that further to include Africa.
As well as being dirty and smelly, with mould and various other things growing on the walls, it was incredibly noisy with lots of banging going on – both doors and people. The mattress had lost what spring it might have had 30 years ago and after a bit more research we found some more reviews claiming that it is also brothel, so if you are an avid collector of fungal diseases, athlete’s foot is just one of the many you can pop into your scrapbook.
Here are some reviews for you to peruse at your leisure: http://www.dailyinfo.co.uk/reviews/venue/632/Nanford_Guest_House
