“Great pub spoiled by over loud bands”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

Have been to this pub many timed like the fact that it doesn't have a pretentious crowd. However the bands are always way too loud for such a small venue which spoils the atmosphere on the weekends. I like live music in a pub but still want to be able to hold a conversation.

I received a call from the establishment telling me i was booked in for two nights and the firts night i had failed to show. This was soon sorted as i was only booked in for one night so panic over.

On arrival check in was smooth and simple, breakfast on offer was continental only but more than adequate for my needs.

The room was fine with no noise being heard from the bar or street after closing time.

I could not get the radiator on so the room remained cold during my stay, which was a tad cold in the morning.

I did not appreciate the beer barrels being shifted at 0630, but this may have just been a one of event.

Overall a nice stay, but would not do it for more than one night.

very good location quiet street ...fun bar with live big screen football +weekend live music okay for simple food interesting outside courtyard closes at 22.00 ..very acceptable room with full facilities .. effective WIFI in most rooms it seems

some staff unsure about reservations system and and even functionality of bar tills !

however room 5 above /beside food lift which was very noisy as restaurant bar was very busy ..food service stops after 21.00 but usage stops a circa 24.00.

overnight very quiet except residents in room 7 above staircase beside room noisy floorboards etc

4 guests seemed to leave prior to 06.30 given doors closing etc
breakfast tray exactly on time for 07.00 continental breakfast a little clinical with loads of cling film !

Room Tip: dont book room 5 if you want to sleep before 22.00

I have stayed in the Globe a few years ago and it was OK (apart from thumping music from the live band in the bar below). On this occasion I did not actually get the pleasure of staying at all due to a fault with their online booking system. I received a confirmation of booking and, of course, paid the full rate only to receive an email on the eve of my departure to Aberdeen telling me that there had been an error with their booking system and that I should contact the booking company (that is behind the online room reservation system on the Globe's website) and ask for my money back. No offer to refund teh money themselves, no help in finding aternate accommodation, nothing.

We stayed here on a saturday night and were very happy with it. The room was very small, but nicely decorated, clean and with a decent en-suite and good shower. The staff were friendly and helpful and the bar downstairs has a great atmopshere, getting very busy with live music and a good friendly crowd. The location is excellent, literally a 3 minute walk to Union Street and at £55 per night, including a continental breakfast, I think excellent value for money.

Stayed a Wednesday night, accommodation very clean and nicely decorated. Rooms are located directly above a busy bar which serves nice food and a good selection of beers even if it is on the expensive side. If you are an early bedder don`t stay here as there can be some noise from the smokers standing outside and it is probably worse on Thursday-Sunday when live music is on. It is well located in a quiet street yet only a 2 minute walk to the main thoroughfare of Union Street. Would I stay here again-yes.
