This hotel is directly beside the main train station - and where this may be useful in providing transport links - it means you shouldn't expect to sleep much. On the day we arrived it was 34oC - at 5 1/2 months pregnant I was rather struggling with the heat. Having checked in - I discovered my room was on the side of the hotel which looked directly out over the railway tracks - the first thing that greeted me was the heat and the train announcements!! Having had a look round the room I realised there was no air con and no fan. Realising my chances of sleep would be minimal I went down to reception to enquire if there was any chance of changing rooms - without even looking at the computer the girls said no. I then asked if they had any fans. This time I was told "no - the only fans we have are for the staff on reception" and she pointed to the fan in front of her! I was gobsmacked! Needless to say I had to sleep with the window open as the room was unbearable with it closed! Trains run all night long and it literally felt like I might as well he been trying to sleep on the station platform!! I managed about 2 hours sleep at best!! The next morning I decided to try and see if it would be possible to change rooms again - and again without looking I was told NO! Needless to say another night of no sleep ensued. I will never stay at an intercity hotel again. Customer service is something they clearly don't give a second thought to. If you want to sleep - don't stay here.
