Disappointing - 2 out of 5

Sara T, visiting Waterfront Norwich Tue, 5 November 2013

Disliked: The thermostat in the room would not work, so the room was cold. Also, the water pressure was so poor that having a shower proved difficult.

Awful experience from start to...

Liked: Nothing springs to mind
Disliked: There was a lack of front of house staff, one person was expected to cover check in, resturant and bar. Room booking was for twin room but was set up as standard king size. When asked if it could be changed i was advised it could and would be done whilst we had our dinner (that was a whole other nightmare.) On returning to our room we had a single duvet plonked on the bed and no changes made to the set up, this meant that we had one sheet between two beds and a kind size duvet and a single duvet and we had to seperate the bed move furniture and re make the beds as best we could with what we had. The issue they claimed was because it had been booked through and not direct!Getting back to the food - well, we were told they had no chips or fish so when we looked at the menu there were very few options that didnt come with chips, so we had to leave and go to an alternative hotel to eat in their resturant.. that was very niceI thought it couldnt get worse but how wrong i was, the bathroom door locked and couldnt re open so i called reception with no answer so had to go down to reception again. They did manage to open the door with screw drivers and pliers but looking at the lock it had happened a few times before and i was advised that door handle was a little wobbly and to keep it in mind when we used the door. Breakfast was awful, food was low quality and cold and the scrambled egg was placed next to the beans in a warmer and the bean juice had migrated to the egg which looked awful. I can honestly say it has been the worst experience i have ever had in a hotel. However the staff were nice (2 reception staff - there had been a change of shift not 2 at one time!) and a young girl who seemed to be running around doing everything but clearly there is a lack of staff and the building is run down. Never again will i stay there.

Very good

Liked: Perfect for attending a concert at the UEA and enjoying the leisure facilities next door. Loved the breakfast. Have stayed here before and will stay again.
Disliked: Was quite a bit of wear and tear in the room. The light above the bed took ages to cool down causing a loud clicking sound.
