Hi, We do have entertainment at the hotel but it is usually the last Saturday of the Month.

Work was taking place in the room next to us. Loud drilling and banging could be heard when we arrived in the room and then from 9.30am up until checkout. Was trying to get some rest as I had been up from 5.30am to take my partner to hospital. Obviously i didnt get any rest. When I advised recption staff of the disturbance I was advised that the work had to be done sometime. It would have been helpful if they have ensured guests where not placed in rooms directly beside where very noisy work was taking place.

Location is half way betwwen airport and city centre. Hotel is nice and clean. Staff were all friendly. Bar is a good size, comfortable and the Guinness was good. Room was comfortable. Bathroom had a large walk in shower. Sleep quality was good. Do not expect any nice views. Overall a good stay and would use again.

The taps in the bathroom were stiff and difficult to adjust and the water splashed everywhere. I reported to the reception but nothing was done. The bath tub had moldy patches. The shampoo and shower gel had very strange smell (they were old?)

Good morning, We are sorry you had a bad experience with the taps, this has since been fixed. The Shampoo & shower gel should be fresh as they are changed daily. We will check with housekeeping to see if maybe there a problem with this batch. Please contact us directly if you are returning & we will make sure you are looked after. Kind regards Team Skylon
