I have just returned from a stay in this hotel and one night was more than enough ,we were overwhelmed by the entrance to this hotel .stunning decor ,lovely staff all was going well until we finally found our room ,along a dark dingy corridor we entered the room to find two very large beds an adequate bathroom then we realised there were no Windows the room was claustrophobic to say the least .I rang reception to say how the room felt we were offered another room but we're told I was a long way from where we were and it had a window looking onto the main train station not wanting to be kept awake by noise we said we would stay in room 238 ,it felt like servants quarters it had an external window which faced the landing unfortunately it didn't open and no light came in .the air con was broken and the room had no air circulating it was unbearable neither myself or my daughter slept it was horrible .as I got out of bed I stood on something which turned out to be medication which concerned me as it could have been a toddler that had found it ,I googled the pill which turned out to be a form of viagra ,this made my blood boil to think the room hadn't been vacuumed since the last clients getting up to God knows in the bed I was sleeping in .a thoroughly horrible night I did complain when we checked out to a young receptionist who could only apologise ,they do not mention these stuffy internal rooms on the website I paid £ 98 for one night .totally disappointed they offer you a free mini bar and that is because your so hot in the room you need to drink oh and they send a fan which makes no reduction in the heat the noise keeps you awake .rest assured I will not stay there again and the medication I found will be sent to head office.
