I am currently a guest of the Salisbury city lodge, in room 9. I am writing this review at 1.55 am.
My daughter and I have been unable to sleep for the last two hours due to the noise outside in the street. The Chapel night club is currently in full swing and room 9 is on the first floor, directly opposite, so is subject to the full effect of the ridiculously loud music and the drunken, noisy customers of the club, in the street. My car is parked in the street downstairs and has drunken people leaning on it.
It is outrageous that the hotel should have sold me this room on a night when the club is open as it is impossible to sleep with this noise going on.
I have complained to the night porter, who said there is nothing he can do.
To make matters even worse, we are staying in Salisbury tonight because we have to be up at 5.30 am to start a 26 mile charity walk all day tomorrow, which will take at least 10 hours. Our chances of being in any condition to complete the walk are minimal now, without having the benefit of any sleep as the night club is open until 3 am.
I told the receptionist at check in that we were doing the charity walk and that I was parking my car outside overnight and she gave me no warning that there was going to be any problem with the noise or any possible damage to my car. It is quite unbelievable that she should have allocated this room to us under the circumstances and not even warned me not to leave my car, especially as it is not obvious that the night club even exists, during the day when we arrived.
This hotel should not be allowed to sell this room to guests who are unaware of the problems they will face. This is utterly disgraceful.
