Arrived at midnight after a 6 hour drive and given a room at the end of endless corridors. Open the room to find empty crisp packets, used towels and and unmade bed.
Traipse down to reception again and after a 20 minutes wait finally given another room.
On a more positive note, the hotel is quite nice with good sized rooms and both wired and wireless internet. The connection is quite stable but the bandwidth is terrible. OK for doing a few simple emails etc but if you want to download any attachments, or worse still, send any attachments, you are in for a long wait. It seems a shame they want to charge for parking as the hotel there seems to be plenty of parking.
The bathrooms have a wet room which I normally like except in my room the water dribbled out of the shower head.
Would I stay again? Maybe at the right price but there are lots of other hotels in the area which might be better.
