Reception was really good as I was looking to check in at 2pm and the room was ready for me, with friendly staff.
It advertises as being the 1st Indian themed hotel in the UK and it's not got to the point where they need to start renovating and improving areas.
There were at least 2 mains sockets in the Noor room that I stayed in that were loose and you had to be careful when removing a charger that the socket unit didn't come away at the same time.
The bathroom def needs some TLC, but the shower was great, powerful and loads of water. A soap and shower gel pack were in the bathroom trying to hide the area above the toilet that needed some paint and further TLC.
The room has a flat screen TV, really too low for watching in bed - could do with being wall mounted and a desk type of unit - just don't open the draws, those you could open some wouldn't close as with the built in wardrobe. It had character but I definately couldn't bring my wife here. One night was ok.
The thing that really let the room down was the bed sheets - the top sheet had holes in it and the bottom sheet had stains on it. By the time I got into bed it was 11pm and was too late to see if reception was still available for fresh sheets. With this in mind, I thought I would skip breakfast.
When I mentioned about the bed sheets in the morning, they said I should have reported it to reception and they would have swapped it out.
