          I am a bit worried about noise. I thought we had picked a nice very quiet hotel but it appears from some of the reviews that it can get a bit rowdy. Is the bar over at the Emerald nice and quiet?

          We found that the type of visitors/ guests that tend to use the hotel and bar, aren't the rowdy young type, but more middle aged and mature types, the Emerald bar would be nice too

          No, we took our own. There were pots, pans & hot plates in our room although not in all I think. I expect that they would find you one if you asked - the manager was very obliging.
