We were looking forward to a one night stay at this 5 star hotel. On arrivel we were not disappointed, the staff were very helpful and friendly, we were delighted when we were informed that our room had been upgraded. The room,No 303, was beautiful, clean and tidy, the start of our lovely night. Dinner was excellent,.service second to none.On retiring to bed our nightmare started little did we know that the upgrade included all night entry to the adjacent night club. We were awakened by the room vibrating to the beat of the music. This continued till 04.00 am in the morning after which we endured the noise of revellers leaving the club which lasted till 05.00 am. We had intended to use the spa facilities in the morning but were unable to as we slept till 09.30 and had to go to breakfast as checkout was 11.00 am. On complaining at checkout we got the distinct impression the the staff were aware of the problem of noise from the nightclub on a Wednesday,Friday and Saturday night at that side of the hotel. the hotel is a great experience but I would recommend that on a Wednesday,Friday and Saturday night you do not book a room that looks onto Waverley Station
