Marjorie's Big Bruise143 viewsMarjorie managed to shut the back door of the car on her forehead. The blood blister swelled within 30 seconds of it happening. This is a couple of days later, and you can see how swollen it is above her left eye.

A Memorial at York Minster Cathedral108 viewsI liked all the swords and rifles int he ruffles at the bottom of this bust. And the winter light, through the stained glass windows, was attractive.

Marmadukes Luxury Hotel and the Four Poster Bed114 viewsFor some reason the management or decorator at Marmadukes Luxury Hotel thought the four poster bed (designed, apparently, by the guy who designed the beds in the Harry Potter movies) was the most important thing in the room. It filled the room. In fact, one of the four posts actually went up and into the antique chandelier. You couldn't use the single bedside lamp: it was behind a non-retractable curtain. Marjorie trying to read in the dark, in this hotel-from-Hell.

Marmadukes Luxury Hotel - York167 viewsFor our one night in York, we paid 180 (on a Monday night, in November) to stay at Marmadukes Luxury Hotel. We thought it was awful. Here's a photo of the only TV in the room, with a screen smaller than my laptop. And you had to sit in this low, stiff Victorian chair to watch TV. It was truly awful.

Marmadukes Luxury Hotel -- Trying to Watch TV in Bed89 viewsThis overwhelming bed also made it impossible to watch the single TV in the room from bed. Yet the bed was 80% of the room. The single TV screen was small, and you had to look at it through the bars at the foot of the bed. It was the most inconsiderately designed hotel room Marjorie and I had ever encountered, and the hotel management was absolutely the worst.

Marmadukes Luxury Hotel, York --- Run Like Crazy84 viewsIf you ever go to York and your hotel looks like this, run like crazy in the opposite direction. Marjorie and I had an awful stay here, and the management were nasty and unapologetic.
