Firstly the process of booking the hotel was superb and the young lady is commended. We
spent two nights (Fri and Sat) with an average of four hours sleep a night. Had a lovely room 112, very large and well fitted out but above the main bar. We had not known this would be a popular and very noisy venue for music etc (must try harder to check reviews!) On both Friday and Saturday night when sleep finally came at 2am we were woken by disturbances outside (cannot blame hotel) with drunken couples wanting to assault one another at about 330am. The hotel is on High Street (albeit not a very busy one). Welshpool was a stop over to visit other areas but not going to stop there again. On arrival we were presented with a card asking us to ensure we knew the Fire Exit etc from our room. On the photostat card (showing the hotel was also a Best Western?) on the door in the room we were apparently in a room some distance away. As we knew where we were in the event of fire we would not be misled. However, given that hotels are Fire Service inspected I am not sure this was a pass. We tried the restaurant on one night only and felt the staff were in training. The building is a nice old historical one and if it were somewhere else we would enjoy return. Friendly staff. My last comment was about the bathroom. The fan system was not working and was so clogged with dirt and dust it had not been for some time. The edges of the ceiling were all coming away from the edges and may be worthy of repair. To be fair we went on a deal for £89 for two for two nights and you sometimes get what you pay for.
