Good location with shops and numerous places to eat. I was there over a weekend and the music could be heard in my room which was 2 floors above the bar/nightclub. I found it not too intrusive. I found the staff friendly.helpful and polite. A good breakfast too The room was clean with a good shower.

Arrived at 9.30pm to find the deafening night-club in full-swing, and the the check-in desk surrounded by burly bouncers and drinkers which was a *little* off-putting, if not intimidating. That said, the girl behind the counter was extremely nice and helpful and pointed us in the direction of the free car-park (opposite the police station) just a stone's throw away.... More

We booked a couple of months for a friends party on a Saturday night. We were aware of the nightclub so requested quiet rooms at the time of booking. Check in on the Saturday was fine.

Turned up at 8pm wanting to get straight to bed as my boyfriend and I had to be up at 5am so he could compete in a very important and strenuous half iron man race nearby. It took 30 minutes to get someone to give us a key for the room we had pre booked despite going to the bar... More

I have looked into the background of this booking and found that you booked this room on-line via Laterooms.com on 5th June for a 7th June arrival. The website does warn Guests about our Nightclub with music until 2.00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and advises that where possible quiet rooms are allocated. Due to the lateness of your...

We needed a hotel for our band to stay over after a gig in Hockley - we pre-booked this and didn't really know what to expect with only 2 stars (probably because there is a noisy nightclub downstairs at weekend but this didnt bother us as we never got in until the club was almost closing)- what we found was...
