2/10 Poor

Never again
Last night we checked into the hotel. Whilst checking in a drunk patron of the hotel stumbled out of the lobby and proceeded to get into my car whilst checking in. As I attempted to intercept my car being driven away the front desk stood by and did nothing. As the man got out of my car he proceeded to abuse me whilst again employees did nothing despite being asked to call security. I then had to drive my car into the car park the man continued to abuse me again. To make matters worse, this morning went downstairs for breakfast after a traumatic night to be told there is no buffet at the hotel even though it was advertised and paid for. We were told we would be required to order off a very slimmed down breakfast menu. Sorry no bacon with eggs. We stay at hotel chains each week. We won't be staying here again and I recommend nobody does. P.s the room quality is also not 4 stars as advertised (see photos) The manager admitted that they stuffed up. They made mention that they would get back to us about making the horrible experience right, but never did.
