Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel

Reviewed 14 May 2006

The Apollo has a lovely foyer, but unfortunately the quality stops there. There is no porter, so I struggled to my room with my bags, having to go down stairs and through doors to get to it. It would be better if they took off the internal doors or made them automatitc. The rooms is shabby, with 70's furniture, holes in the curtains, and unmaintained bathroom tiles that are not stuck down.

The lighting in the room is too low to work in, despite the two tables. The bed is good however, with nice linen and pillows. Room service menu is a bit over the top, not a lot of basic food on it for the travelling worker who is watching what they eat.

We have gone back to all reviews written over the past 2 - 3 years and came across this negative review written in 2006. We can only assure you that the issues of which you complain have all been addressed over the past 5 years, and the hotel is currently undergoing major renovation and expansion. There will also be an elevator in the new wing, which is under construction. We would hope that you would consider visiting us again where our General Manager, David Ingelton, and his professional and enthusiastic team, will use ever endeavor to make your stay memorable. Kind regards Trevor Morris - Director
