On checking in the receptionist asked “you like music?” Well, it’s a good job we do. As previous reviews have highlighted, a room on the BCM side gets you the bumping radio one tunes from 8pm ‘till 12 and a room on the Katmandu side you get the dulcet radio two tunes of Tom Jones, Rod Stewart and the like from Finnegans bar from 10 ‘til 12pm. Luckily, the receptionist got it right and gave us radio 2! It’s not a problem really as the music stops around midnight and with the door closed its minimal. It’s a point worth noting though. Have you heard the stuff radio 1 play nowadays?
The hotel is run efficiently and like clockwork. Every member of staff know what they are doing and they do it well. Spotlessly clean and efficient friendly service from everyone.
We had a maintenance issue where the toilet cistern wasn’t filling with water and despite reporting it twice it wasn’t fixed. Very disappointing. We managed by shaking the cistern lid and shaking the cistern itself. Poor people next door must have wondered what was happening.
Food is ok. Nothing to get too excited about and there was always pizza and chips to fall back on!
The price of wifi and use of the internet was outrageous.
One of the things we didn’t like was the beer. Not the actual beer itself as Cruzcampo is a beer we enjoy, but how it was served and presented. The beer resembled a pint of cider after a minute or so as all the froth fizzled out and there was no ‘fizz’ at all. This was mainly due to detergent residue on the glass and how it was poured. Pouring the flat lifeless beer into a glass that had been rinsed thoroughly rescued it. Shame it wasn’t served at it’s best in the first place. Go to Finnegans across the road Mr Head Barman to see how a proper pint is served which was excellent.
House of Katmandu passed a few hours. It’s not really for toddlers or very young children. The hotel closes for a refurb with the emphasis on families for next season which means we won’t be returning. The 3 or four families that were there all had ‘tiny tantrums’ screaming the place down, and that was just the parents !! Haha. Sharing a meal time with 200 children for me is Katmandont not Katmando!!
We won’t be returning but we wouldn’t discourage anyone from holidaying here.
