I was originally booked into the Jurys Inn but when I arrived the tour operator I had booked through had gone bust. As I was due to do the marathon I needed a hotel in a hurry so paid a ridiculous price to stay at the Royal Albion. It is well located but that is the only plus. Our room was in the basement without windows. At 10pm we discovered we were underneath a night club. The ceiling and bed were rocking, apparently until 2.30am - perfect if you are running a marathon the next morning!! To be fair, they moved us at 12.45 in the morning so we could get some sleep. The breakfast was £7 and was revolting - cold porridge (no honey) and cold toast. We moved to a 3rd room for the second night. The remote control didn't work in any of the 3 rooms. The shower was temperamental to say the least. The windows, when we had then, were filthy and the net curtains were screwed up. The rooms were basic and tired but reasonably clean. There was a stag party and a rugby club running riot - lots of drunk men lost in corridors. The staff were neither friendly nor rude, just sort of disinterested. I feel ripped off! The whole place needs a complete and utter refurbishment outside and inside and sound proofing too. I don't recommend anyone stays here ever - unless you are stranded and about to run a marathon like I was!
