“don't do it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2008

The plus points first. It's not too far out from the centre, is has free parking & wifi (chargeable) available and it's low priced.

But here's the catch, it's only open 8am-11pm. Outside of these hours you are on your own.

I'm sitting here in my room in the Kyriad. It's hot so we switched on the small air conditioning unit in the room. It started up but after 15 minutes we realised the room wasn't getting any colder. Testing with my hand I have found the unit is making a lot of noise but no air flow. Worse still it won't switch off. We have tried for 30 minutes to get this unit off but it's not responding to anything and it's hard wired to the wall, no way of switching off.

I phoned reception to be told it's after 11pm so the hotel is closed, nothing can be done until 8am.

So here I am in a room that's baking hot with an air conditioning unit on overdrive making too much noise to sleep.

That's the problem with this concept, I don't mind the idea of a cheap head-downer but not at the expense of ALL service.

Thank god they have this wifi otherwise I'd have gone out of my mind by now.

Definitely not recommended and for me, never again this brand of hotel.

Hotel very expensive to the quality that offers. Bathroom very cold and old. Good parking (free) but dificult access to -2nd floor. Staff quite simpathy.

Rooms very small with no adequate ventilation. Very hot in summer but I guess would be OK at other times. Clean, breakfast and garage OK, good value overall.
