We went for a function for two nights. The first room we were given was very small & at the back of the hotel with a view of the roof. It was so small you had to go out into the hallway to change your mind. We arrived at lunch time on the Friday. I requested a larger room with a balcony but was informed there were none available. I went back to the room to inform my husband. On seeing his disappointed face I went back to reception & requested again. As I said we had arrived a day before most of the other guests, so surely there had to be other rooms available. On my second request after much searching on the computer I was given a room with a balcony in a much nicer position. Why is it I wonder that every hotel around the world does this ? A guest arrives, you are offered a room, it is the worst possible room. Then you ask for another, it's better. Shouldn't it be first in best room first ? Not the other way around ? After a few years of travel I have now asked to see the room first before I check in & if I don't like it I simply ask for another room or go to another hotel. In the end it was a nice stay because of the function & friends we were with. The food was lovely.
