This hotel is superbly located, but thats where the praise ends. I requested a heater for my room but the staff at reception were unaccommodating. I was advised that heating switch for my room was deactivated. I returned to reception to remind them of this issue. I ended up being move to 2 different rooms, all with no heating, and this matter was never resolved. How can they charge me £150 a night, and not be able to provide guests with heaters?
The temperature of the water was luke warm at best.
The shower drain in my room was clogged up, and water was overspilling outside the cubicle, leaving the bathroom floor extremely slippery and very dangerous to walk on.
Breakfast was unenjoyable. The bread was stale with mold around the edges, and the croissants tasted as if they had been reheated over and over again. Some of the mugs, bowls and spoons were visibly dirty, and it was possible to taste what the guest before had consumed.
Besides its location, this hotel is massively overpriced and offers poor value for money. For the same money, I'd recommend staying at the Radisson or Midland Hotels which are further up the road.
