If I had seen the previous review, I would have stayed somewhere else.
We stayed there for four nights in early July 2008. I was told when booking that the hotel was 'undergoing some work' and there would be no gym facilities and some disruption to the lobby area - neither of which would bother us. SOME work ?? When we arrived, part of the car park was occupied by two large cranes and also being used to store building materials. One whole wing of the building was sealed off and the entire lower section of the hotel had been removed. They were even fixing the roof!
I cannot fault the friendliness and efficiency of the staff, but the room rate at $175 per night (excluding breakfast) was a rip-off, when the builders started work as early as 7AM and the place was a mess!!
We were in an old room on the 8th floor, only one away from the renovations, so we heard it all. We could also hear ANY activity going on in the hall - other guests and their kids, the maids and cleaners, builders - the lot! Not at all private. There was also some aircraft noise as the hotel overlooks the runway.
The room was basic. The beds were comfortable, but the bathroom extractor fan didn't work and the bathroom lights were like buzzing deathrays!
The only consolation was that the construction workers downed tools for 4th July weekend, so we were granted a little peace for the latter half of our stay.
...I'm wondering why this place is open... And why it's still charging a standard room rate, when it's currently way below standard. If you need accommodation near Bangor Airport (as we did) there are other options nearby which are much better in their current state.
