We stayed at The Globe this weekend, looking for a relaxing weekend away. Whilst the room was lovely & the location very convenient, the overall visit was not enjoyable as we simply were unable to sleep!
Our room (#8) was directly over the pub, and no attempt was made to quiet this prior to last pub guests leaving at approx 1 am. This wasn't a bit of background noise, but loud to the point that you'd have thought the pub customers were in our room.
When we shared this with reception, we got a reaction that was entirely dismissive, saying that they are a pub & this is how it is. When our bill was £200, we felt a bit differently, and were also unhappy with how disinterested reception was.
So -- if you consider this hotel, insist on a back room & do not even consider staying in rooms # 7 / 8 / 9 as these are all on top of the pub.
