The hotel we stayed in yesterday (the Gatwick Hilton, which is like a Premier Inn but more expensive) had an interesting sink.

You might notice that there are flannels either side of the tap. This is because the tap only shoots water into the sink when it's on full blast. When you turn it on less than full blast, it either catches on the sink housing or doesn't even go in the sink at all. When you turn it off, unless you do it instantaneously you're almost guaranteed it's going to run on the housing.

We noticed this fairly quickly, on account of how there was a pool of water on the floor. How the designers of the room didn't notice is beyond explanation.

The breakfast was pretty good, though, I have to say.
