A hotel that treats you like a pub (a bad one)
Posted Sep 8, 2016 on Hotels
At checking in, first words were that I had to pay, which I had already done. After this another (nicer) guy checked and corrected him telling that I had payed and stated that they though they already finished their agreement with Hotels.com. Afterwards they enquired on why I asked for a family room when I it was just me and that they had to do the sofa bed in vain. (well I paid for it so it is practically none of their business I assume?), room was hot with no AC and with open windows there was insects (not biting mosquitoes fortunately, but those which are thoroughly interested in your Ipad screen), furniture had stains and although carpets were ok there was a wasabi nut in the middle which shows it had not been vacuumed. Shower was an incredible puzzle and once you got it warm (from scalding hot) flow was intermittent. For dinner they recommended me their partner restaurant "the phoenix" which service was poorer than the hotel. At night after all this I decided to take a pint and after being ignored by the guy he finally got to me with a "What can I serve you buddy), my reaction was not very polite I admit I told him that I wanted a pint and that I was not his buddy for which he gave me a lecture and "I kill you" looks, not to continue with this none-sense I said yeah lets have the pint and get this over with. I went to my bed (which was comfortable) and slept until the most bland and greasy breakfast (even for England standards).
