This is my first review, the reason being that I have never been angry enough to write a review before.
My boyfriend and I were booked in for one night over a weekend. When we arrived there was a big group checking in at reception. After 10 minute wait (during which no extra staff joined to help with the group) we were checked in. We soon realised that we had been put on the same floor as the large group booking with their rooms either side of us and across the corridor. We also realised immediately that there was absolutely no sound proofing in the room in which we were staying and we could hear, word for word, all of the conversation in the rooms next to us.
Whilst I completely understand that you can expect large groups staying with you in a central hotel in a city I think you could at least expect, as a couple, to be placed away from them on a quieter floor.
We got absolutely no sleep due to people wandering around the corridors, shouting and slamming doors throughout the entire night.
Great location but this hotel needs a serious revamp, during which sound proofing desperately needs to be investigated.
If you want to stay out all night this hotel is great. If you want to sleep at any point do not bother.
