Great Location for Football...hotel okay!from fivealive55
We arrived approx 9am and expected a few hours wait before we could check in because we wer told check in was at 12 or 1 but we were given our room straight away mind you we had 2 check out very early and our filght wasnt until very late so we spent our time with a tour around the football stadium and a few drinks at the bar.
The food was very good, fry was amazing but when we went down early one morning my boyfriend wanted a coffee and i wanted a coke, when he went to reception to see if this was possible they told us we could have a coffee but not a coke because they werent alowed to serve a drink from the bar until the opening time...for a coke?!?!
One morning for breakfast we wanted to pay because it wasnt included and there was no staff about so we went to reception to pay and she told us we had to pay at the restraunt so we waited for a while for someone at the restraunt and when they finally arrived they told us we had to pay at reception! the girl was obviously new!
The reception area etc was impressive but the corridor and rooms were very dated and smelt like an old peoples home!!! and the lift made lots of noises which made me feel quite uncomfortable!
The leisure facilites were good, lovely pool, sauna etc but the changing rooms are very dated and at the time we stayed the man told us the lockers werent working and ecpected us to leave our belongings in an unlocked locker!!! when i got in there wer keys in the doors and he responded by saying "oh they must have been fixed".
I would stay here again purley for the fact that it was close to the football stadium but if you wish to stay here for any other reasons i would not recommend it-its not very central to the city and not as up to date as i expected.

not a great stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The bathroom water had what we would call a 'foosty' smell about it - didn't think it was safe to drink!
I ordered room service for my evening meal - it was OK but items were missing and it was on the cool side, food came up uncovered too. The range of food was not great either.
The door on my room had very little to hold the lock in place and as I was on my own in the city overnight I didn't feel that secure. There was a chain on the door which did help.
I ordered breakfast for 7.45- 8 slot - it didn't arrive - I phoned down at 8.10 to be told it was on it's way - at 8.25 it arrived which gave me about 5 minutes to eat it before I left for my business meeting. There were items missing again - ie no continental basket of bread and rolls but a nice dish of butter with nothing to put it on. The fruit juice had also been spilled all over the tray.
Good points - the staff were friendly, particularly the receptionist at check in and check out.

Low cultural experiencefrom sombochris
The two barmen were slaughtered that evening, obviously severly understaffed.
These guy' were excellent and deserve much better than this place.
The presentation meal was terrible and the service aweful.
My experience at this hotel prompted me to join trip advisor.
Don't go there, unless you have to!!!
Not bad at all....from DancinDi
Mouldy bathroomfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The family room we were allocated was not of generous proportions but was clean and well decorated, but the bathroom was quite disgusting.
The smell from the mouldy shower curtain greeted us as soon as we opened the door and the once white bath sealant had been colonised by a thick black mould along its entire length and was starting to creep up the grout between the tiles.
The reception,leisure suite, bar and dining room are all very pleasant and the staff are very helpful but drinks are a liitle expensive at almost eight pounds for a coke. a beer and smallish glass of wine.
I would stay again but i would ask to see the bathroom first.
