We booked this hotel 3 months in advance, as we where attending a convention.
We requested a room on 1st or 2nd floor with a front view.
Upon arrival the reception advised us that they had their own "function" on and where booked up. (not that I saw any sign of this) and the web site sill offered vacancies! So, we got given a room on the 3rd floor with no view, and when I say no view I mean no view! the room was at the back of the hotel and had FROSTED WINDOWS which you could not see out of, and alarmingly where painted shut!
With the windows painted shut and no specific fire evacuation proceedures on the back of the door, I wondered if this was illegal.
The room was clean-ish. The carpet has not seen a vacuum for a long time, as when I took my shoes off for bed me feet where covered in hairs and bits (uuuch!) and the shower had a lot of mold on it.
We where offered another room but that was on the forth floor, was identical and as the lifts where broken all weekend, another flight of stairs was just a pain.
I was let down that I paid the same as people who got front view nicer rooms and for £170.00 for 2 nights I got a second rate crappier room.
I believe in getting what you pay for and don't like being ripped off.
But looking at the reviews for the other big 3 / 4 hotels at this end of the shore, it seems to be hit and miss on what room you get.
