I stayed at the Ashbourne Hotel for one night on business. I was given Room 102. On entering the room, I found it to be rather cramped and basic. I have stayed at this hotel before and the room then was much better. I was told that there should have been a Room Service menu in the room but when I had eventually man-handled my luggage up the stairs (no help offered) and unpacked, I found that there was no menu in the room. I then had to go down the stairs to Reception, as I couldn't get an answer from the phone, and ask to be given a menu.
The food was very good - I had a rib-eye steak which was exceptionally tender.
I eventually settled down to watch a bit of telly and then it started. A loud monotonous hum which was drowning out the sound from the television. I left it for quite a while before it became too much. I then phoned down to Reception (got an answer this time) and complained. They said it was the fans from the kitchen, which appears to be directly under this room. This noise went on until past 10.00 p.m. Very irritating when you have had a long drive and just want to chill out at the end of the day. To add insult to injury, on it came again at 6.00 a.m.!! Uggggggggh.
That morning, I met a colleague for breakfast. When I asked him if he had a good night's sleep, he said that he had had to complain about a loud humming noise as he had wanted an early night but couldn't get to sleep because of it and eventually he too had complained.
Moral of this story is to make sure you don't get put in Rooms 102 or 103!!
