We tried to stay at the Savoy on Saturday th 15th of December 2012. On arrival we asked the two ladies at the front desk if the hotel was quite as we just had a bad experience the previous night with a noisy hotel. They informed us that it was and so we booked in for our stay. The room was not bad, although everything is a little run down, everything was clean. We went out for the night and upon our arrival at our room (22h30) we heard shouting, screaming, swearing and very loud music coming from the outside. We went to the person on duty and asked if we could be moved to another room as we would not be able to sleep with the noise. They were only willing to give us a room further down the hall on the same side, which did nothing for the noise. We eventually booked out of the hotel at 23h30 after phoning around for another place to stay. Upon our return to the hotel the next morning to enquire about getting some of our money back (our stay was B&B), they heard our complaint about the noisiness and just then informed us that there is two night clubs on either side of the hotel. They were not willing to refund us. ( From the person who opened and closed the gate for us the previous night, we heard that the noise only stopped at 3h30 the Sunday morning!)
