9. A hotel I stayed at in England had no phones, no clocks

This was the first hotel in the tour and the tour leader did not bring her American only cell or an alarm clock. She was outraged since she had never been in a hotel that had neither appliance. She did stop at a PoundStore (think Dollar Store) to buy an alarm clock, but it took three tries to get one that worked.

Another place I stayed in was the same, but at least their "book" about the hotel gave contact numbers for everything - front desk, room service, housekeeping, etc.

One thing every single UK hotel and B&B had was a tea service with an electric kettle. Usually the only coffee provided was instant, but at least there was some caffeine choice in the room.
