Ah ! well a-day !

According to Wikipedia (ever a source of inspiration for toilet bloggers!), "The word 'albatross' is sometimes used metaphorically to mean a psychological burden that feels like a curse. It is an allusion to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (1798)[1]".  
This aspect was very far from our minds, however, when checking out the toilet of the favourite restaurant of some relatives of ours. Restaurang Albatross is situated in Malmö's West Harbour, and offers spiffing food, friendly staff and a simply corking toilet!

We like: Mixer-tap and soap!

Hygienic paper towels and bin!

Disability-friendly toilet, hygienically covered toilet roll and a supremely convenient and hygienic bin!

An aesthetically pleasing touch

There's no coat-hook, but according to Albatross veterans one can hang one's jacket on a hanger outside,
and one's handbag on the door handle! Also, thanks to the design, one can open this door using one's elbow (or other part of the body one doesn't regularly use for eating), thus saving oneself much OCD-related angst!

All appliances from Tork!

A close-up of the high-quality, disability-friendly mixer-tap!

 This supreme toilet gets eleven points, leading us to the inevitable conclusion that we need to revise our points system - it should be much more than that!
