Stayed here as were transferred from a nearby hotel due to an overbooking error. Very disappointed with the room we received. Room was tired and looked in need of some refurbishment. Carpet very worn/had large split at bottom of bed and all loose fitting/rippled. Curtains attached on bare tracks to panels of unpainted mdf on bay windows. Room also far too hot and no air conditioning apparent. Very disappointed in general with the room and defo not what I expect from a hotel with a '5 star' rating. Shower was also seriously lacking water pressure in morning, was more of a trickle than a shower after a long time spent trying to adjust it further. In short, not the place to go if you're looking for a touch of luxury. Hotel did make a reduction in room service charges as offer of goodwill and staff were very helpful and apologised.
