On arrival at the hotel the room was extremley warm (I am super cold person so rarely have this problem) and I was unable to open the window so I put the table fan on (no air-con) which sounded like a jet plane taking off - the staff were fantasstically helpful and showed me how I could open the window and provided me with a different fan. I tried sleeping with the window open, however the room was over a pavement on the main road and was really busy and very noisey and after hours laid trying to sleep had to close it and put the fan on. Even with the noise of the fan I was kept awake with noisy doors, and other banging from within the hotel - the room was still very over heated and ended up 'resting' as no sleeping on top of the covers.
The room itself was very tired and the bathroom had no space whatsoever and it clearly wasn't one of the newly refurbished rooms and paying full price not through a discount site through a company they could have repeat business from was suprised having read all the glowing reports on here.
On depature I wasn't asked if I had a nice stay - just told what my balance was and that was that - no small talk at all - boarding on rude.
It was a shame as the restaurant food was lovely and the staff also - I stay in between 2-3 different hotels each week across the country and this is the first time I've walked away thinking I don't want to stay there again.
