I particularly asked for a quiet room, if that was it, I would hate to experience a noisy one! There is a constant hum from a fan (I think) in the back yard. Then occasionally about 2am a truck does some noisy work, just in case one had managed to fall asleep. Trash truck I assume.
Later response from Hotel said staff allocated wrong room!
The room was cold in winter, no extra bedding in the room The heater fan is way too loud to be left on. It was 24 degrees outside. So it's a case of either feeling cold with less noise, or noisy fan and warm, but little sleep.
There is NO chair! The wardrobe is fit for a single midget with no jacket.
This is the first hotel (from 1000's) not to have an international shaver socket. I was told to go out and buy an adapter - for a 3 night stay!
The heating duct is at ceiling level, how crazy is that? heat rises!
There was no coffee in the lounge once breakfast had finished.
Room tv, it works fine except it is impossible to use the remote from bed level as the receiver is high up and tucked at the rear on a short cable.
Management, I am assured, are addressinbg some of these issues. I remain unconvinced.
Would I stay again or recommend it? Only for it's location.
