I have stayed at Scandic Haugesund for several periods. Rooms are great, clean and really nice looking. I have been there during the cold winter nights mostly, and during this time the rooms are cold. Really cold. And the temperature cannot be controlled with the remote control. The bathrooms floors where ice-cold to. I also rented a movie, but it was not possible to watch it. Because it was lagging all the time. In January 2012 we also rented at conference room with a special offer they have in Scandic hotels. It includes lunch, and coffee, cakes and so on. In the firm I work for we use Scandic Haugesund a lot. The ventilation problem seems to follow me around when I’m at this hotel. We also had problems with the food arriving to late, this has happened several times.
I talked with the meeting and conference manager and she said that this happens sometimes because the kitchen could be busy. Well I would accept this excuse one time at least. But the funny thing is that the food and drinks we ordered always came late. And still did when we had the last conference in early April this year. I also talked with a colleague of mine that had a conference there may this year, there still were problems with the ventilation and the food being late.
I have been to a lot of hotels in Haugesund, also Rica Maritim Hotels. And when I was there the last time I thought I was back at the same hotel, because there were a lot of people at Scandic that used to work at Rica Maritim. Makes me wonder why Scandic have so many former people from Rica working there. Well by all means this does not bother me. But it should bother the management at Scandic.
Scandic Haugesund is well worth the visit, but they have things that need to be fixed. And a working ventilation system is one of them. And one last thing, I found dust and so on in the ventilation system in the hallway, and even over the ventilation system in the breakfast area. But I pretended not to see that….
