I am currently at this hotel and to be honest cannot wait to leave tomorrow morning! Id leave tonight if I could just to get a decent nights sleep.
The hotel itself is beautiful,steeped in history and full of character however the noise from the rooms is beyond acceptable.I am now in my second room on the 7th floor and theres more noise than the first! Its constant banging,slamming of doors,every noise carries...It sounded before in my first room like an elephant above on the ceiling.,.It never stops.The staff outside in the corridors doing their house keeping,you can hear everything from them running up and down to them slamming the doors..its constant and really really bad to sleep here.I literally cannot wait till morning to check-out.so thats 2 rooms in 2 days and no peace!
The rest of the hotel is beautiful,the lobby is one of the most unique Ive seen,the lounge is great and the bar is very quirky and interesting,busy and good for people watching.
The staff are helpful but seem to have no idea about noise as they are not the ones in the rooms.
I will be stuffing the earplugs in again tonight.
The station connected to the hotel is great for food,shops,snacks etc..
The room I had was not in the Chambers section,but the other side.
My first room when I looked out of the window all I saw was a huge roof a few feet away from the window..nothing else at all.that was the 4th floor..if you were unlucky to be on a lower floor all you get is a brick wall..the higher floors like 6 and 7 are better for a view but still not much of one.
The bathroom products are REN so that is nice.Bed is comfybut no point when you cannot sleep from consistent noise..The rooms in the side I stayed were nice but nothing wow..some come with only a shower cubicle and some with the bath and shower over the top..so when checking in if you feel like a soak,make sure you ask for a room with both bath and shower.I would have really enjoyed my stay here if it wasnt for the noise..exausted and unhappy!
I stya in hotels all year round for my work and this is one of my top ten noisy!!! I wouldnt mind if it was from traffic lets say but when its from housekeeping round the clock then I have an issue with that!
