Over the years, I have stayed at this hotel over 50 times (this is not an exaggeration).
I love the location, style and value.
However, I must agree with other posters that this hotel can be noisy. Fortunately I rarely stay on weekends, so most nights it is fine - but occasionally the pubs below decide to pump out music late into the night.
This week I stayed there again and, for one of the very few occasions, actually rang reception at 11pm to ask "when the music downstairs is likely to stop?".
The reception staff seemed genuinely surprised and puzzled by my request - as if being kept awake by pub music at 11pm was nothing to be bothered about. The nonchalant reply I received was "probably around 1am or 1,30am". The staff member was very matter-of-fact about this - as if I was asking him what time breakfast is served in the morning.
Management of this hotel need to seriously consider the relationship they have with the pubs downstairs. The only other time I complained about the noise was a few years ago - when I was assured pubs must close at a certain time (that I cannot recall). However, the pub music went on well beyond this.More
