Ive never written a review before but I thought I had to with this hotel.
As has been said before, you cannot sleep past 8am due to doors slamming, drilling, hammering and housekeeping shouting "HOUSEKEEPING" every couple of minutes.
Rooms were freezing, the room phone didn't work, the tv volume went down only to a loud setting.
Probably the worst part was the size of the room. £245 was taken from my card and without a word of a lie, there was around 10-12 inches of space between the bed and the walls and the bed and the door. This means you can't even open the door properly when entering or exiting with bags etc.
As I said, I have never taken the time to write a review before but I felt I had to with this extremely disappointing hotel. Dont get me wrong, the hotel looks nice but that is small consolation.
