We were supposed to stay at the majestic hotel on a Saturday night however when we arrived at 4pm we were told someone had mistaken my double exec booking for a single and there were now no doubles available. Luckily the hotel had a twin hotel, imperial hotel, which was apparently much nicer. However, this hotel had no parking so we had to park over the road and pay! We were then unable to get any sleep due to the bars and nightclubs underneath the hotel, even though we were 3 floors up and had ear plugs! As we had to be up at 6.30 this was not welcomed! The noise was extremely loud and caused the room to feel like it was vibrating! I would not stay here and would not recommend anyone else do so unless you are going to be out to the early hours! The bedroom itself was ok. We stayed in room 308 which had stains down one side of the wall from where it looked like there had been a leak! I would also suggest taking some pillows as the ones at the hotel are as solid as a rock!
