I'm still at the Langstone, this is my second night of 4.
I was booked in here by the Company I work for to attend a week-long training course.
First impressions are good - the location is great, the reception staff are friendly and the reception and bar area look modern, clean & welcoming. I'm afraid, so far, it is very much downhill from there.
My well appointed bedrooms was so cold, I had to sleep fully clothed last night to stay relatively warm - by day 2, the room is beginning to reach a bearable temperature.
i ate in the so-called 'A La Carte' restaurant last night (which astonishingly has 2 AA rosettes!). The menu was unexciting, the service was slapdash, with the serving staff having no idea of who ordered what, and mine & my colleagues' food was, at best, luke warm on arrival. Steaks were not cooked as requested, my salad had seen far better days and the general presentation was terribly disappointing.
I was looking forward to a nice hot shower to ease away the pain of a long sleepless night & to warm me up this morning - it was hot & powerful, but the hotel have chosen to install shower curtains, instead of a glass screen in the over-bath shower. Due to the power of the shower, the curtain kept wrapping itself around me as I was trying to shower - always a revolting experience, as I'm sure these are not cleaned between every guests departure/arrival.
Tonight I am having room service - I will update as necessary - wish me luck!!!
