I've been staying at the hotel a few times a year for the last four years. Whilst it's a nice enough place I used to HATE the decor in the rooms. It was horribly dated, and although the rooms were a good size and were well equipped the yukky curved green units and the ugly colours always got me down. Last year I stayed in one of the new rooms when only the upper floors had been improved but this week was my first visit since the room refurb has been completed.
The rooms are now lovely. I like the feature wallpaper on the bed wall, the new storage units are so much smarter and there are still plenty of facilities - iron, board, safe, fridge etc. The new sinks in the bathrooms have beautiful sinks which manage the rare combination of looking great and actually working (most fancy sinks spray you with water when you use them). The beds are fantastic.
The restaurant is expensive and the selection for dinner is poor. Breakfast is a bit of a stressful experience especially if they have several bus loads of tourists in when you're hunting for coffee, juice etc. as the food area is quite small.
The basement conference rooms are horrible but that won't matter to most guests.
My favourite member of staff - the crazy bald Italian - was missing on this visit. I hope he was on holiday - he's the best thing about the place.
Smokers should note that they DO have smoking rooms - as I was unlucky to find out when they gave me one this time. Surely someone should have asked - I walked in, turned round and went straight back to reception. I didn't even know that smoking rooms still existed and I sure as hell didn't want one.
