Stayed one night for work. Arrived and entered the one way carpark and was immediately greated head on by some idiot racing round the carpark the wrong way. As I parked up a crappy boy racer car sped and screeched into the carpark with 2 oiks getting out with sports bags who proceeded to make their way to the reception.
Obviously a local hangout for the Chester and Wrexham teenage banger brigade.
After checking in I got to the room. I was instantly hit with the musty like smell of wet dog as I entered, there were 2 single beds on casters that moved as soon as you tried to sit on it. The bathroom floor had wet patches near the toilet, which I only hope were water. there was no wardrobe, just a few coat hangers on a rail. No iron or ironing board. these had to be ordered from reception.
One call later and a travel iron appreared (really a travel iron). The TV looked like it came from the Ark with a limited choice of channels that seemed to just be just streaming constant adverts for PPI claims or Cash Converters etc.
After getting changed I went to the bar to meet my colleague. Not much of a draft choice, I asked for a Guinness, the pumps broken, is a can OK said the barman. Really you think anyone is going to pay draft prices for a can, get a grip!!! Obviously I had something else.
My colleague also commented on his room being smelly, he had to open the windows it was that bad.
After a really shoddy bar meal I called it a night. Good luck getting any sleep, was like laying on a large skateboard that moved everytime you turned. Also you could here the room noise form the surrounding rooms.
Turning the shower on next morning hopefully explained the previous nights wet floor. There was no shower curtain, just a small partition wall not capable of sheilding the rest of the room from the showerhead, which proceeded to hose the entire room down.
Shocking place, won't be staying here again any time soon.
