We stayed here for 2 nights in the Summer 2012 before we took a ferry to France. We were allocated a room on the 2nd floor (I think it was room 210?) which was at the end of the corridor. I had the worst night sleep ever in a hotel! It was the noisest hotel room I have ever stayed in. I did ask for a higher floor room when we were told we were allocated a room on floor 2. The check-in receptionist said the hotel was fully booked with one glance at the computer without touching any buttons!
Anyway, the reasons for the noise were:
1) our room overlooks the back garden and there was an event in the function room one night and people were walking in and out of the connecting back garden, drinking and chatting loudly in the back garden.
2) The end of the corridor overlooks a whole lot of machinery which I presume was the air-conditioning units etc. I could hear the machines humming noise all night.
3) I could hear the traffic at the nearby motorway.
So if you are a light sleeper, get a room on the higher floors.
