Go to Pavilion reception. Management ask that you give them your room number, so they can tell the security at the back gate. This gets you back in to the hotel again!

Go up the short corridor to the left of reception, then............
and out through the door on the left (Just behind the baggage carrier in this photo). A short flight of steps leads to the road.
Turn right and follow the road, keeping to the left, up to the back gate. Remember it is a staff entrance route - do not expect the tidiest route you have ever seen!!
Before you go through it, make sure security has seen you, since it makes it easier to get back in.
