I booked into this hotel to watch Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Norwich City. On the whole, my visit was very enjoyable but there were a couple of sticking points. I want to get these out of the way first:
The first room I was given hadn't been cleaned - the floor was strewn with rubbish, the dustbin was full and it generally smelled like a brewery. The staff however were very helpful on this note and gave me an upgrade to a room with a view of the pitch (which I must admit I'll be back for at the next opportunity!).
The food and drink was very expensive - I'd highly suggest that you eat out. There are countless great restaurants in the area, and after the match I did choose to eat out. £4.50 for a fairly average bottle of beer PLUS a £4.50 tray charge made for a eye-watering visit to the bar before bed. Surely they make enough profit on a bottle of beer that overpriced without adding an additional £4.50 captive audience charge? I'll most certainly be bringing my own drinks next time I visit.
As I mentioned the staff were very helpful with the problem I had after checking in. My room was on the third floor and was very well appointed as you would expect. The bed was comfortable and the usual selection of teas, coffees and biscuits awaited you upon arrival.
I took some time out on the Saturday morning to visit the city centre. There's a great array of shops to suit all sorts of different tastes. The Jarrold department store is definitely worth a visit.
