Booked this through lastminute as many ppl have recently as a birthday trip for me and bf.
We actually walked past the hotel a few times as we couldn't find it through all the refurbishment works going on outside.
We were in the apartments down the way and so had a lovely view of an office block and had workers watching us.
The room was a twin, and when the receptionist showed us to the room she commented that oh dear, this is a twin - we'll have it made as a double - and the beds were just pushed together. It was not comfortable.
The thermostat was set at 32c when we got there -so we had to put the aircon on, which was so noisy all night!
There was some filthy insect in the sink (i think it was a silverfish) in the morning.
The longlife milk in the frisge was out of date so no tea in the morning.
Appauling considering it is a 5 star hotel.
