What a night!
If you can't stand the heat like me, don't come to this hotel in the middle of a heat wave. Otherwise, it's clean and comfortable, easy parking and convenient location. Supermarket Lidl is just across the road and bus stop right outside the hotel, with loads of buses for Nottingham city centre.
I read up the reviews before I booked, so was aware of the maze like layout and creaky stairs. As rooms don't have air conditioning, the desk fan was my only saviour.
I was woken this morning at 1am by the heat -- fan wasn't working. In fact, there was no electricity in my room. Telephone did not work either, so had to go two floors down to the Reception and found out the problem was affecting some parts of the hotel.
Packing up in the dark using my phone torch was not easy. The hotel booking system/internet wasn't working either, so it was a matter of checking good old index card back up, getting a key and see if a particular has electricity or not.
I must say Luke who was manning the reception was calm and helpful. Actually, the two other receptionists I saw during the day time were fine too.
I was offered a ground floor room, got my luggage in and found out the window opens wide at waist level. Not felt safe as single female traveling. Eventually, I settled at the executive room of the hotel for which I really appreciate, even though I had to carry the luggage back up to the second floor.
This room, unlike the other rooms, had an air conditioner and a fridge. Unfortunately, neither of them works!
It's 4 am now and I've unpacked again. Need to be up early, so better get some sleep but what an eventful night.
