On the plus side - staff were really friendly, the room was lovely, lots of tea and coffee, piping hot shower and great size bed. The noise level from the live band however was, for me, a nightmare. I realise it was my choice and my own mistake, as the fact that it is a live music venue is clearly publicised, but the noise, even on the top floor, was unbearable. So if you want to sleep before midnight this is not the hotel to choose. However if you want to join the party I am sure it is heaven and the perfect central location..

Hi thank you for taking time to leave a review. I am glad the room was comfortable and everything was ok for you. We are a live music venue so on Friday and Saturday nights the music will be heard in the hotel. The music is strictly turned off at 12.30 am on these nights. During the week the music is switched off at 11.00pm. We do publicise this on our web pages but we accept that it will be heard on the weekends.

When he once up on a time is findable the manager is doing a lot to make you feel comfortable.
Generally friendly but non-professional staff.
Our room had seen better days. Sad that the modernisation and refurbishment 3 years ago was one of the many non-sustainable ones.
Generally the chosen stile was a good one.

My partner and I spent a night at Qudos in February 2013 on a trip around the UK. The food and service was excellent and we were very lucky with the live music staying on a Monday night as the Blues band weren't too loud and finished at 11pm on the dot.

We stayed in one of the top floor suites and although we initially had no hot water at 3pm check in, it was fine after we ran it for 10 minutes. We couldn't hear the music from our room and I must agree with other reviews that the bed was huge!

Check out was a bit strange. I must admit we gave up looking for a member of staff and left the key behind the bar for a cleaner to find but it's not like we were expecting breakfast and a paper.

If you like live music and staying somewhere near the action then go to Qudos. Staff were friendly and we have since visited as diners twice and continue to go back.

Hi thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we are happy your stay was enjoyable. We are taking on board your comments in reference to the hot water, it does take a few minutes to reach the top two rooms. Sorry there was no one around at check out, my team should explain on check in where to leave the keys. I see you stayed last year and we have a check out procedure in place for a while now. So hopefully when you visit again it will be easier for you on check out. I am glad the room was comfortable for you and yes that bed is huge !

This hotel makes no secret of the fact that they are a music bar, so if you like peace and quiet this may not be the place for you. However, we had a lovely room on the second floor with the HUGEST bed in the world, probably as far from the noise as was possible to get. The bar wasn't really our thing, but the location was excellent, right in the town centre, so there were plenty of restaurants and other pubs nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful, and we got a parking space opposite. All in all, good value for a really nice room with added music (it did stop at around midnight).

Room Tip: If you don't mind stairs, get a room on the second floor.

We went here on recommendation for my partners birthday. We chose it for the fact that it was on a music night but after arriving and booking in we were informed that football would be on until 10pm and music would be on after, this was really disappointing as we both hate football and on website Tuesday evening is advertised as music night, and when I booked I told lady we were coming for partners birthday and because we have been told about the music night. They had my phone number so I wish they had informed me before our arrival, as on this occasion we would have gone elsewhere
However for the short time the artists were on it was really enjoyable.
Our meal was fantastic and could not fault the service, although it was quite noisy with the shouts from the football supporters.
We stayed in the suite which was lovely and really comfortable but was disappointed that the jacquzi did not work.
I would be hesitant to stay again unless I was guaranteed the music was definitely going o be on.

Hi , thanks you for taking time time to leave a review, we are sorry about the football and unusually it was on a Tuesday. We should have called and apologies for not doing so. But we are glad the rest of your evening was enjoyable. Our music will always take precident over any sport, but we felt as this was the final match and England had to win, we would show the game
