my hubby had a course for a week and the only place we could get booked into was this faulty tower hotel! £600 for a 5 night stay without breakfast and dinner.
so on arrival was fine went to our room to unpack and get organised room seemed nice and cosy opened the wardrobe door and pulled out the extra pillow that we were going to use to discover NO pillow slip over it and it was covered in Slevers, light bulb wasn't working in the bedside lamp and no toilet roll In the toilet, went to reception and asked the male reception for a pillowslip for our pillow, a bulb for our lamp and toilet roll so popped out to the shop and came back got into our room and still NOTHING there hubby walked back to reception and here were 4 members of staff propped up at the bar drinking including the male reception who we had asked to get us these things! eventually the poor wee night porter comes along with half the messages!
house keeping staff a young lassy with dark hair and glasses tapped our door every morning at the same time 10;30 ish as I was getting myself and my daughter ready we were a bit slow in getting out the room she taps the door and asks if we would like anything I told her I was heading out in 20 mins if she could come back and clean our room then as it was not cleaned for 2 days as It was decent from myself keeping it tidy, 3rd day we needed it hovered and cleaned this cheeky lassy stands looking at me up and down and pulls up her sleeve to look at her watch as if to say for god sakes! I myself work in the exact same trade and never have I done anything so cheeky, took my daughter for a spot of lunch in the dining area while they cleaned our room (if u call it that) empty toilet cardbored was left in the bathroom worktop, no bin liner in the bin and room was not hooverd for 3 days floor was a mess she made the bed and put clean towls in!
I also have photos to show of the mauldy rotten shower that could do with a spray of bleach every once in a while along with the dirty toilet which didn't have a brush to remove any dirt OH not forgetting there was 3 of us staying in this room and only ONE toilet roll was put in just aswell we had wipes,not even a hair dryer in the room you get better quality at travel lodge for £19 a night!
the only thing that makes this place is the wonderful susan in the dining area always happy to help and so kind, food is horrid though!!! we shall not be back here and will defo not be recommending this hotel to anyone! they don't give a monkey specially house keeping! oh we also found a dusty receipt from back in may 2013 between our bed and bedside table how often do they pull those out I didn't want to look any further! we couldnt even open our window at anytime as the staff were sitting at our window smoking our room was honking the first night we had it opened! lesson learned!I did wonder why my hubbys company didn't have this hotel on their recommended list to stay!! BIG AVOID!
