Lacking for a 4 star
Receptionist was very helpful, booked a taxi for us for later that evening and upgraded us to a deluxe room.
Room itself was a bit dated but clean and spacious with a big bed. A strong smell of paint throughout. The usual toiletries but no dressing gown or slippers. The fire alarm went off at 4.30am without any explanation or reassurance from staff. At breakfast the next morning, after 20 minutes waiting at our table, we eventually managed to get the attention of the waiter to request coffee. The coffee, when it eventually arrived in a large coffee pot, was almost pure water, THE worst coffee we have ever had the bad luck to taste. The buffet looked like an amazing spread but it was only ok. There was no offer of freshly cooked eggs, the only offering was scrambled eggs from the buffet which were drowning in liquid. On checkout when I mentioned that we were very tired after being woken by the fire alarm at 4.30am the receptionist was not very sympathetic, she more or less said 'well it is good to know that it works'. Well obviously it doesn't if it is going off without any fire. I have since checked reviews of the hotel since I have come home and I see that it is not the first time that the fire alarm has gone off during the night scaring the life out of guests and disrupting sleep. The hotel is in a convenient location but I would not return. There are plenty of other hotels in that area that I would try next time.
