I am currently staying at this hotel. Last night I noted there was a extension cord leading from under the bottom of the bed covers of my double bed. It was connected to a wall socket that was switched off, and I naturally thought it was for an electric blanket. Upon switching it on I was surprised to find the entire bed whir into life rising 4 feet off the ground and 2 feet forward. Upon inspecting underneath the bed was found to be sitting on some sort of primitive hydraulic lift apparatus. Upon further inspection there was no reverse switch to be found and so I slept the night in an adjacent single bed. I tried to work on my PC throughout the night utilising the ‘free wifi’ only to find the connectivity dropped out every 5 minutes which was highly frustrating. Upon returning to the hotel this evening I found a note on the still erect bed telling me it was broken and please spend the night in the single bed (again, despite paying for a queen room). There is now also no internet connectivity at all so I ran the reception and spoke to the vague woman who appears to try and run things. I asked her if she had any reports that the internet was down, to which she replied no. I then told her that the internet was indeed down as my 2 devices couldn't now find a signal. She said it was probably something wrong with my devices to which I replied I dont think so. She then asked me to step outside (its below 10 degrees here this evening) and connect from there! I replied to her that I was able to connect to the signal the night before albeit it was next to useless. She said there was not much she could do as other people already had a password (?). I then repeated the fact that whether they had a password or not there was no signal and I asked if she could reset the router. She said she wasnt sure as other people might be connected ! I said they cant as there is no signal. She then said she would see what she could do. I asked if that meant if she was going to reset it. She said she might be able to. I asked what does that mean. She said she had only done it a few times before. I said all you do is unplug it and plug it back in. I asked if she would do that. She said she would see what she could do! I waited 15mins and am now in town at another place using their wifi! cant wait to see what the rest of my stay has in store!
