Noisy Environment

You may want to bring noise cancelling headphones or earplugs if you stay at this hotel With the pub and live music events, noise is often a major issue for guests A party type atmosphere often runs well late into the night Some guests even describe fights in the streets nearby as a common happening To make matters worse, noisy church bells ring every hour.

Bathroom Facilities in Need of Overhaul

After Hours Entry Proves Difficult

Many guests describe having trouble getting back into the hotel and their rooms when arriving late at night, say from attending a wedding or other event Door keys don't seem to work and finding help to let you in could prove quite the adventure.
