I stayed at Admiral House this weekend and it was a really good hotel. I had breakfast and although it wasn't up to much it was quite enjoyable. The only issue i had with the hotel which may seem very petty however to me this was a huge let down to the hotel. I arrived at the hotel to find a couple of peple (what i asumed to be guests) at the reception desk, however after standing there for several minutes i realised that this was not the case. I now believe that these people where friends/family of the receptionist. Not only did i have to wait while they finished their conversation in what i think was polish whilst being checked in i had several pairs of eyes watching me, which made me feel slightly uncomfortable, when i enquired about restaurants, bars etc. an english speaking gentleman had to step in and assist in giving me directions and even names of places i may like to eat/drink. I am not an unfair man however I think that someone in a front of house position such as this should speak almost perfect english. I was not shown where the lift was or even told which room i was in i was merely given a key to the room and a rectangular piece of cardboard. These words may sound harsh however i would certainly recommend this hotel to friends however the check in/out brought this hotel down. I would stay here again but not while there is a social event going on in the hotel lobby.
