"Get top floor as floors are wooden."
"Ask for the top floor and towards the back of the hotel. Front rooms get all the drunken noise from those leaving the bar."
"If you want privacy and self catering ask for a chalet."
"try to get a room with a terrace - great view"
"Ask for earplugs on arrival."
