I thought I would try the 'secret hotel' option, as the reviews sounded great from other customers. So I went ahead and booked what was advertised to be a 5* hotel, rooms with city views etc, parking, generally boosting that the hotel was amazing - you see why i thought great just book it!
On arrival i would have expected someone on the door to meet and greet and take our luggage. Before checking in we had to park the car, note to future customers this is not on site, it is a NCP. This is not included in the price despite both companies saying it was, the hotel provides a 25% discount.
We checked in and in excited spirits we went up to our room.
The room was very small (premier inns have bigger rooms).
The bed was extremely hard.
The room and furnishings smelt of cigarette smoke.
The side draw fell apart on using it.
The TV cabinet door was barely attached to the cabinet.
The shower fitting was not fitted properly.
The city view was a joke.
I'm sure from this you see why my husband and I were extremely disappointed with this booking/hotel. I understand we got a great discount, this doesn't mean that its acceptable to just give us a sub standard room. A 5* hotel so not put guests in badly decorated, finished, tatty 3* rooms!
