A group of 11 of us stayed there on a friday and saturday night recently. We were given 3 rooms. 2 "family rooms" and a self contained flat! ha that was a treat!
Being a group of lads i didnt expect much as its only a place to sleep. We were there in total for about 10 hours in 2 and a half days. We werent noisy but i think due to the paper thin walls, there was some noise heard. When a guest complained about the noise, which wasnt us to be honest, as we werent even in the hotel when this noise was happening, the hotel manager blamed us and tried to charge us money!
One family room didnt lock and when we told the manager, he said it was "ok as there wouldnt be anyone like that staying upstairs in the hotel". All we did was push the door and it opened. No force needed what so ever.
The other family room was ok but not exactly huge and one wardrobe for 3 people isnt enough storage space.
Now onto the self contained flat. Upon hearing these words a few of us grabbed the key and went straight downstairs to where it was. Thinking that it would be the best room in the hotel. Little did they know!
The stench upon opening the door was horrendous and the site of a double mattress on the floor wasnt expected. One bathroom was locked up, the other had no shower curtain and no lock. The beds were damp and the electric wires were uncovered.
Now I think if you are going to let a group of lads into a hotel, not to mention the fact there was a stag party in there too, then you should expect some noise and disturbance. You should let old people and families in the same establishment as stag do's and what not.
All in all please avoid!
