I booked The Light for a hen weekend to make it a bit more special than a bog standard hotel. We arrived around 5pm and it took about 30 minutes for us to check into 3 apartments! I was expecting an open plan space with wow factor and what I got was a two bedroom flat in need of a clean and general upgrade. There was no working telephone, so if we needed to speak to reception which we did on several occasions (key card stopped working, DVD player which had been booked in advance wasn't rigged up and when it was it wouldn't work) we had to wait for the VERY SLOW lifts to take us down 11 floors. Most of our Friday evening was spent faffing about checking in, paying on arrival - weird - and sorting out problems. Basically, in my book a 5 star apartment does not have a mouldy bathroom, broken toilet seat, iron burn in carpet, broken light fittings, and blinds which do not cover the window let alone block out the light. Overall, very disappointing. The only saving grace was the refund we received.
