I expected noise from the music events room but it was not a problem and over before last orders. The room was perfect for a stopover stay, warm and cosy and very clean. I wasn't too impressed with pub food at dinner (maybe my choice that night was a miss) but the room was exactly what i needed. I'd stay again. Read less
