Imagine stepping into a room and discovering you have been transported into a beige nightmare set somewhere in 1973.
Flocked wall paper and badly clashing decor fight against the swirling patterned carpet - looking like its owners employed a small troupe of interior designers to spin round in circles until they were dizzy and then be sick all over it. Welcome to the Angel Croft...
This place is the closest I have been to the 70's since i shook hands with Jimmy Saville.
Search for reviews of the hotel and you get the impression that its patrons were none too thrilled with their genuine 70's retro adventure.

If you get past the dazzle camouflage effect created by the decor, there are some beautiful features in the hotel.

As I stepped on to the landing of the top floor, from behind a door, i could faintly hear the earie crackling of a badly tuned radio and the lyrics to Dont cry for me Argentina echoing around the corridor!

Pushing thoughts of silent hill to the back of my mind I stuck my head round the door and found...

Toatally missed the kitchen and another half of the massive cellar on my first trip so here's a couple more shots.
