It took about 90 seconds to realise that I had made a terrible mistake booking a room here. Shabby decor in the lobby, lifts that didn't work, a room that smelt of damp with sticky carpets underfoot, the view was of a building site that was being used as a rubbish tip. The room was barely bigger than the bed, and you'd be lucky to get to sleep with the the view of peeling wallpaper on the ceiling. The "professional" photos of the rooms on the hotels website bear no relationship to what I was offered. On complaining to reception, the answer was "nothing can be done" Thankfully, my third party booking service was on the case and no cancellation fee was charged.
