Not a good start when the first thing you see in reception is a sign you can upgrade your room,basically it's saying you've got a crap room if you don't pay extra. To start with my room 309 was shabby but clean and in desperate need of a refurb. However the room didn't get hoovered for a whole week. Also there was a massive boulge in the ceiling when there must of been a flood on the floor above. On the other hand, we had great views from our windows and the hotel is probably in the best location you could ask for. What i found most annoying about the room was the TV. I could only get bbc1 and bbc2. I had to stare at a picture of a kitchen on itv and a picture of 2 fillets of cod on channel 4 ,for the whole week. Lastly the beds were quite uncomfortable as you could feel the springs. However you could tell they have done up the public areas of the hotel for the Olympics. The food was alright but very basic. I thought the breakfast was very nice. I thought the waiters and waitresses were very hardworking unlike the restaurant manager who didn't do anything. Also they seemed confused about how ordering the drinks worked. I liked the games room that had a snooker table. The hotel had 2 lifts i preferred the old fashioned lift with the two gates, like the one in the Titanic.
