I was offered a traditional room on the top floor. I must admit the room was certainly traditional, like a throw back from a 80's dinner party. Tatty, cheap, tired and battered decor and furniture, a window that could not be opened or fully closed, no air conditioning (it was boiling) and the offer of the cheap, noisy, oscillating fan and the drone of traffic for comfort. It's nice to see £6m was well invested in the restoration in keeping with a grade II listed building.
At 1am I called reception to leave. A night porter (very nice fellow) secured me another room and thankfully a fan which was a marginal step up from the previous nightmare. The room was small, a single bed and once again noisy and uncomfortable.
A four star hotel, £6m investment, £2m spent on oscillating fans from Argos! It's a good job the service as just as bad (except the night porter)
I'm a seasoned traveler, I spend 2-3 nights a week in hotels up and down the country and I can safely say stay somewhere else, don’t take the risk when there are so many safer options.
The Service is a joke, as a Brit who doesn't complain ….. for once did ! I got a very lackluster apology. Clearly this hotel needs every penny it can get, to complete floor six and acquire further oscillating fans!
