We spent three nights at Qudos on our travels around England and I can honestly say that this was, by far, the worst place that we stayed on the whole trip. Upon arrival, we checked in at the bar and were given the key to the notorious Room 12. One of the staff carried my large suitcase up to the room for me (which was much appreciated). Upon opening the door, however, we found someone else's luggage in our room, so it was back down to the bar to tell them of our discovery. Someone came and took the mysterious luggage away. Our room was small and had a large window. Since it was a little warm, we tried to open it, but it wouldn't open, so another trip downstairs to ask if someone could help us open the window. A guy came up and tried, but it was painted shut. He did kindly bring us a small fan to help cool off the room as much as possible. The first night was OK, but then it was all down hill from there. The second and third nights were live music nights and Room 12 is directly over the stage. (Why they put us in that room when we were staying several nights and there were obviously other rooms available, I will never know.) We had been told that the music could be somewhat loud, but we were not told the whole truth. The music was SO loud that it literally vibrated the entire room! It was like trying to relax inside a big, giant speaker. This continued until 11:30 both Thursday and Friday evenings. We decided that we would put up with it, because they had warned us that it would be loud. I just want others to know that it is so much more than you can imagine. As far as I'm concerned, that room should never be rented out on nights when the pub has live music. My husband and I decided that the owners of Qudos were much more interested in the bar/restaurant and saw the room rentals as nothing more than a little extra money on the side. The location was great, the room itself was OK, but the noise, the noise...
