Hi Emmet,Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are sorry you did not have a serene night - being in the middle of the city, it is hard to control what goes around, specially on weekends. Appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

Great room. A complimentary biscuit would have been nice with the tea, coffee station for what you are paying per night.

My son has special needs, he accidentally soiled the sheets on our first night, although I did my best & hung up our towels to reuse, I needed my sons sheets changed, I pulled the sheets right back, as a way of letting someone know, the beds were remade by staff, but the sheets weren’t replaced, did I really need to request clean sheets, doesn’t it just take commonsense to remove very soiled sheets, rather than just make the bed. I had to place towels underneath him the next night, the staff were all friendly, but this fault is inexcusable.
