Jan: The Adelphi in Liverpool, where I stayed years ago with my two older sons. It's on the top of a hill, so the wind whistled around it. Everything was brown and swirly, with beds that sank in the middle. The lovely 1930s bathrooms, with huge baths and Art Deco basins, were ruined by swirly 1970s wallpaper. We ate revolting pasta with tinned tomatoes and dried basil.
