We were given Room 10 on arrival, which we were told was a superior room. It would have cost £140 per night, but we were offered it for £120 over the phone. We were extremely disappointed as it hadn't been refurbished. The wallpaper was patched, the skirting boards were chipped, the digital alarm clock looked as though it had been in a smoker's room for the last twenty years, it was dark, and although it had lots of floor space, it had an oppressive atmosphere. I asked to be moved to another room, and if one hadn't have been available we would have left. We were moved to room 41 (in the new extension, right at the top of the building) and it couldn't have been more different. It was contemporary and stylish. I've stayed in less luxurious 5* boutique hotels! The view was fantastic too. The full English breakfast which was included in the price was a bonus. We had a wonderful time and would most certainly stay there again - not room 10 though!
