When we arrived we were shown up to our room which was roomy clean and had an excellent ensuite. It is a lovely old building full of character and charm.
When we came down wewere planning to have a meal there but on realising how much noise there was we decided to eat somewhere else. When we came back we realised that there was an 18th birthday going on in the function room( a fact i feel we should have been told earlier).At eleven pm i enquired what time the disco was going onto as the noise in our room was terrible and was told"The bar shuts at 11.30 and we hope to close at midnight". We would have preferred to get to sleep earlier but accepted this. However when the noise was still going on at 12.15 I tried ringing reception again, the phone was answered by someone who pretended to be a local tyre and battery firm! On ringing back i was told the party was going on till 2 in the morning by someone who gave the impression of being drunk.On trying reception again at 1am they told us they were just getting people out.The noise finally finished at about 1.15.
We were supposed to be stopping for 2 nights but one night was more than enough, although the staff were appolagetic the next morning it was to late and we couldnt wait to leave.
Although it is a lovely hotel it is not suitable for anyone wanting a quiet get away.
