    Old hotel with thin windows, basic decor not value

    It was a valentines evening with a murder mystery dinner. The hotel booking went fine but and heard a large banging noise on arrival from what it sounded like the flor below. I never thought much of it and as we were heading straight out never thought too much about it. On our return at 11:30pm the noise was still there. We were tired and decided to just get our heads down. I should have probably called concierge during the night to complain but when your tired and don’t want to get out of bed in the middle of the night you hope it went away. I decided to get up at 5:30am in the end and then when I checked out I explained about the noise. There was nothing they could do they said as it was no longer there. Was told it was rattling windows but this was not the case as it was definitely pipes or something else banging. There was also screaming outside all night so overall experience was not great.

    Lovely weekend away

    We enjoyed our stay here as it was very ideal for a concert we attended. The hotel is lovely the food in the bar was lovely and the staff were all so friendly! Our overall stay here was brilliant just our bathroom was in need of some much needed TLC and re-decorating!
