Stayed one night in this hotel with my girlfriend in room 34. First impressions were really good. The room looked clean with an extremely comfortable bed and a big flat screen TV mounted to the wall. However we found throughout our stay that things weren't as they should be.
Even though it is advertised that there is air conditioning, there is only a heating system, which won't change from 25 degrees, which in summer is very uncomfortable (thankfully the window opens and we found a fan hidden under a dust sheet in the wardrobe).
Secondly there isn't much selection in terms of TV channels (unless you're a sports fan). There are limited number of channels, yet all the sky sports channels are included, but with varying levels of reception. A simple Freeview integrated TV would be better.
My girlfriend noticed a spider on the top of the wall and as she went to throw it out the window, she noticed that there was a large amount of spiders and cobwebs around the window. This was very off putting and made us a little uncomfortable as the room suddenly didn't feel very clean. We would have requested to change rooms, but we had been told on check in that the hotel was fully booked that night due to a wedding party using Reeds restaurant in the hotel. Surely housekeeping would have noticed this and acted to remove these from the room.
We didn't sleep well that night, but thankfully the breakfast the next day went a small way to make up for it. less
