This hotel has taken the public's love of period features as licence to neither repair nor renew. The result is a cramped, run down boarding house featuring broken down relics of the 1970s. It is not the boutique hotel it purports to be on its website, a facade maintained by artistic photographs and airbrushing that would give pause to your average glamour magazine.
As you may have guessed my partner and I did not enjoy the experience and walked it after only nine hours (we had booked two nights), the following specific issues arose beyond the general decay pervading the premises:
Lock broken (we had to deadlock the door at night)
Bed frame broken
Bedside lamp not working (even after I changed the bulb)
Kettle not working
Dirty marks (query blood) on the carpet
Used tissues in the bedside draw
I requested another room which was provided. However this also had a broken light and was in a equal state of disrepair.
We felt thoroughly misled by the website and would urge anyone booking this travesty to go in with their eyes open. You will be booking into a rundown boarding house, albeit close to Haymarket station.More
