This was our first visit to The Midland, and our appointed room was somewhat of a disappointment. The room stank of damp or mildew. The air-conditioning unit sounded as if someone had left an empty tin can next to the fan. The bathroom tiles were missing grout.
We returned to reception, and got another room, which was better.
Thats if you like beige.
The walls were beige, the carpet was beige, the bed covers were beige.
We left our room, the staff were dressed in beige, again the walls and carpets were beige!!!!
The Midland is in an ideal location, well situated in the centre of town, but situated well away from the car park.
The public rooms were ok and quite spectacular, the bar was expensive and adequate. I had to wait twenty minutes, while all the wedding guests got their drinks. Why is there no waiter service?
Breakfast again was ok, but nothing to write home about.
All in all, The Midland was rather like the colour beige..............very boring!!!!
