Back again for a fourth time and now feeling quite at home here. Last time we were here , we had asked for a 'quiet' room and were allocated one on the sixth floor overlooking mostly a car park, so yes, it was very quiet.
This time we asked for the same thing and were given 414 - fourth floor, overlooking dual carriageway. The traffic noise was pretty constant and as the windows were a bit draughty, I think it was worse. The weather was bitterly cold and the wind whistled through the building - literally. the whistling wind was really loud in the corridor outside the room, coming from the fire escape at the end of the corridor, which again, wasn't completely sealed when shut..
This did not deter from our stay - with earplugs in, all noise vanished! The breakfast was much improved this time too, though the scrambled egg still resembles dry yellow polysteirine - someone should really show them how to scramble and egg without doing it to death. This time, the fried eggs were a) fresh and b) not swimming in fat like last time, and the bacon was beautifully cooked, unlike the anaemic white rashers of December.
The reception staff were helpfull and friendly and no question was too much trouble...
Being so bitterly cold, we couldn't be bothered to walk to the Millenium Centre to catch the No 6 bus into town, so booked a taxi two mornings running, arriving in 5 minutes and costing £5 from the hotel to the back door of John Lewis in the town centre - and great for carrying all the bags back at the end of a long day...
Only one complaint - this room needed a new shower - or descaling - we tried all the settings and none were very good or powerful.
No doubt we will be back again before too long..
