Arriving at 1.00am,tired and exhausted after a long flight,I was shown courteously to my 'marvelous'room on the tenth floor. It appeared to be enormous and like a set from a 1960 Bond movie! No instructions how the lighting worked, a giant tv screen in the bedroom was not working and I needed to catch up with world news. No instructions by the telephone,ie reception housekereper etc.By trial and error an engineer arrived, could not fix it and I suggested he returned in the morning. I could not sleep as he had left the set making loud bleeping sounds.Once more I tried to telephone and again did not get through. I dressed, took my key and found a telephone in the corridor.On returning to my room,the key did not work! and I found myself in the reception area at 4.00am in the morning.asking for a working key.
After waking early and finding the means to open the automatic(?) curtains which enveloped the circular bedroom...not a view of the sea!! but building sites all round! I had responded to the W emails a few days earlier asking for my wishes " a good nights sleep, an early morning swim and a light breakfast thank you". The pool was closed for repairs!! (for some days???) and it was built in the shadow of the high rise buildings around it. The numerous dark suited staff ,only distinguishable from guests by a W on their lapel....but no name and status offered a comlimentary breakfast(already included in my tariff!)....and finally arranged transport to the Sheridan a few minutes away where I enjoyed the relaxation,good swimming in the beautiful pool and sea and a partial recovery from the series of disasters! Checking out their were additions to my account. Breakfast,..had to be removed!! Phone calls also removed and a chocolate bar! I do not eat chocolate!! Considered these extras were maybe a 'try on' as most of the guests were checking out on business accounts but I was not alone on finding discrepencies on the bill. Chaotic management trying to do their best..
