I booked a Superior King room and on arrival, was given the most ugly, old, dusty, out of date, well worn, un painted room they had. I literally walked in, looked around and went back to reception to decline the room and I was happier to drive away and find another hotel than stay there. I was asked why I didn't want to stay in that room and when I replied that the room was awful, even just for one night, the reply I received was that it was the Bridal Suite!!!! I nearly fell over!!!!! There is absolutely no chance that I would ever stick a penny strapped commuter in there - Never mind a bride!!!! (ROOM 70 By the way).
So, I downgraded as there was coincidentally one room left in the whole hole and I did not even get my £5 back - Yes, the room I downgraded to was a fiver cheaper than the Bridal Suite I was given. That needs some thinking about...!
So, from my downgraded room, I rang Room Service to order 1x Pint of Carling Black Label. I was told that it was £3.50 for the drink and £3.50 for the Tray charge. No problem, I'm lazy right now, I'll pay it.... Then... And it will be 30 minutes as we are really busy here................ (the saga continues...........)
I decline the wait, put my boots on and go down stairs where I see a maximum of 10 people including staff n the whole place!!! I go to the bar where the very polite barman serves me and when questioning the delay of 30 minutes, he nearly fell over too! He said that he could have had the 1x drink with me in no time!
My review is this - Do not stay here unless you've won it as a prize or it's either here or the streets. less
