    The location and the room was ok

    There were refurbishments going on. A really strong smell of paint, building noises and dust. We weren’t told of the work in progress before we arrived. When we did find out it was too late to cancel.

Staff should of knowing this and arranged us to be move away from noise.

    The location was convenient.

    The hotel was being rennovated. The scaffolding and painting going on inside and out even when we checked in took away from our experienc. The residents lounge was unavailable due to this ongoing work and we were directed to a nearby bar which closed as we arrived. We had been looking forward to a luxurious and welcoming stay at this famous hotel but received the trademans entrance and little service. The room was not as expected either, with a faulty aircon control, which apparently was disconnected and wasnt ment to be provided, the bathroom was tired and badly discoloured. The staff at reception said they would pass these issues on to management, and then quickly added that we should mention it next time we were booking so they are obviously not too bothered. Must update my travel blogs and forward ion social media.

    Nice room on the 4th floor, very comfortable bed. Spacious room. Central heating, a little balcony. Great restaurant for breakfast and dinner, even the coffee smiled

    There are a lot of refurbishments going on so not all areas were available. About the room: I did not like that housekeeping opened the balcony door and left it open all day. Due to the storm the rain the room was flooded and cold. I got help but it destroyed a bit my afternoon. And another thing I did not like is that a hotel like this has still shower curtains. This is quite disgusting. Either you have this thing stick on your body or the room was flooded. This should really be changed
