The only reason I would stay here again would be if everywhere else was full. It was just ok. We had a slighly cold welcome when we checked in. We went to walk in the front reception door to check into the hotel but we can't get in because we don't have a swipe card at this stage. The man behind the desk just stood there and was waiving a white card at us. He was trying to say through the window "use your card if you want to get in". Anyway he let us in by simply pushing a button at his desk which he should have just done to start with. No biggy but also not very welcoming. 4 tea and 4 coffee sachets which was just not quite enough. No teaspoons. 2 bottles of complimentary water in the fridge, 1 of the bottles was only half full. Room was very small and t.v was also very small and fixed on the wall offset from the bed. Now these things I didn't like but it's not the end of the world, I can kinda put up with them BUT what I can't put up with is getting woken up at 8am by the hotel playing music through the speakers in the hallway outside our room. This is totally totally unacceptable to be waking up guests with music that is completely unnecessary. I just can't understand why they would do this. If it was during the week I wouldn't mind so much because I would probably be up at that time but do you have to do that on a sunday morning? Cleaning staff also talking loudly outside our room early in the morning. No heater in our room so we had to make a trip down to reception to ask for a heater. Now once again, not a big issue but all of these things combined made our stay unpleasent. Apart from these things it's not too bad but I still wouldn't stay here again.
