We booked in to this hotel for two nights on business, 12th and 13th January 2006. It was like an episode from "Fawlty Towers" My advice is just don't go there. Room very small,furniture falling apart and on 7th floor with lift only stopping at random floors. We got to 8th floor after 10 minutes and walked down. Lift opened at lower basement which was awful (glad I had not eaten!) Tried to get a snack at the bar, this was barricaded by two vending machines and the only seats were broken. Tried to get down the stairs from the 7th floor only to find obstacles all the way, old carpets, furniture, wood with 2 inch nails sticking out and stair treads that were dangerous. My husband decided to check out as our personal safety was at risk. We were late for our meeting (also had to fetch and move the car) and had to pay full price at another hotel, the first alternative that we tried was full! Not the best frame of mind for a business meeting!!!!
