guesthouse toilets

just while I'm here...

why is it that the g/h shower so often sprays onto the dunny? - or even worse - the bogroll?

I mean -- how difficult is it to design a bathroom that avoids this messy, sloppy situation?

And the floor runs away from the drain hole ?

As you mention, shower sprays straight onto toilet seat, floor slopes away from drain -- other highlights:
washbasin without drainpipe,
no towel hooks,
clapped out old electric water heater that looks so dangerous I'd rather have a cold shower,
no mirror (I mean -- how on earth could you build a bathroom without a mirror),
and of course, the classic:
The hot water tap, which no mater how long you let it run, always seems cold, that is, until you try the cold which is even colder.

Still having a chuckle at the above , and you know its not always the obvious places that do your nut in .

A few months back I stayed at Inchantree Resort at the far end of Kanchanburi , which in some ways was an excellent choice , but ....

They just tried far tooooo hard .

Oh everything worked fine and it was all modern , minimalist grey slate everywhere , which looked great , apart from someone put 10watt light bulbs in the bathrooms .

How in earth this Hairy Farang managed to shave every day is still a puzzle to me .
