We knew we were going to be in for something a bit different with shared bathrooms etc and were prepared for that but we didn't expect our room to vibrate util midnight on the Friday night (Karaoke night) and 1am on the Saturday with the very loud music and patron noise. It is probably fine Sunday through Thursday. The restaurant seemed busy all the time and it is obviously a popular gathering place for the locals. Our room was boiling hot as it had been a wam day- I liberated a fan from the hallway and we slept with it on. We did keep the window open (It only opened at the bottom) for air but that didn't help the noise problem. The beds were comfortable and the towels etc brand new. The staff, when we went downstairs, were friendly but we never saw any staff members upstairs. There had obviously beeen a TV in the room as the wires were still in the wall and otherr rooms seemed to have them. We wouldn't stay here again.
