Pity...i wanted to like it, chic, stylish, fashionable, but too many things were amiss.
Like.....20 minute wait for coffee at the bar."sorry, i was busy with a large table for 6....Really?
Like.....The internal door separating my room and next doors room....thin as paper, could hear everything (i mean everything!!!!)
Like.....The racket in the corridors and doors slamming. Thin walls, sound carrying, sounds of footsteps on the laminate floor.....did not bode well for a good nights sleep. (this......despite pointing it out to reception and asking for ear plugs only to be told "sorry.....we dont do those!")
Like...... no iron and iron board (I thought this was a pre - requisite for a five star hotel?)
Like.....only 4 coathangers, meaning i had to hang my shirt over the mirror door, and when i removed it discovered the collar was filthy as the top of the door had NEVER been dusted/wiped.
I would have willingly discussed these matters with reception on check out, but was not even asked if i enjoyed my stay, thus negating the opportunity to provide feedback.
Nice staff, good breakfast, but i'm afraid thats the only positives i can come up with.
