8/10 Very good

It was great and the breakfast was amazing. The only problem was being on the ground floor facing the road. It was loud outside.

2/10 Poor

The room that we stayed in had converted shop windows as the 'wall' separating us from the street. This provided zero noise reduction from the crowd of people standing outside the next door pub which was constant until after the pub closed. Not only was it extremely noisy, it also felt very unsafe with only a pane of glass separating our bedroom from a crowd of rowdy drunk people in the street, and we were not able to relax all night and got zero sleep. I am shocked and appalled that a hotel inspector would allow this property to use this as a bedroom! It is the WORST hotel room I have ever stayed in! The sad thing is, the room and property itself was very nice and had we stayed in a room with 4 walls, I have no doubt that we would have had a different experience. Manager was very cooperative when we complained but since the hotel was full, it wasnt possible to move rooms, which really would have been the only solution. We wont be returning.

Fantastic property and staff. Only wish I’d managed to personally tip the guy who helped carry bags to the top floor, served us drinks/dinner, and seemed to do a bit of everything.
