We booked what we were led to believe was a Superking room. I told the staff member when we booked I was disabled, well, to be honest, I didn't use the exact words, but I did ask if they had disabled parking. We is covered we were on the third floor, with no lift. They did move us to a first floor room.
This is their room "Michael", which I also believe is room 1. The noise was unbearable, with heavy traffic from very early morning, until well after midnight. Not the Hotel's fault, but we also had to put up with a drunken guest who had been locked out of her room, and spent over 45 minutes knocking on the door until she finally woke him up.
The Super King room was very basic, although the bed itself was very good. They had an open wardrobe with no drawers or doors. There was no hanging space as, what there was, was taken up by the two towelling dressing gowns. No dressing table with mirror, a particular hate of my wife's
Despite the obvious drawback of the noise the double glazing had been removed. The frame for the double glazed door had been left in place, which meant it was not possible to open the door to obtain fresh air. No tissues in the room. The "recently" refurbished bathroom had a very awkward step down into it, no bath mat for its' very slippery bath.
I took the above with a member of the reception staff who made nothing of the noise and no alternative room to offer.
Other than that the staff were reasonably friendly and the included continental breakfast perfectly adequate, hence my raising the marking level to 2.
It can only be the popularity of this area, in my opinion, that allows this property to continue as they cannot possibly let people come to their premises, knowing it is almost impossible to get a good nights sleep, especially if stopping in the front rooms.
