Room Tips
"Choose a room high up and don't go on a weekend. Other guests are too loud."

"Standard rooms great but worth upgrading to Deluxe for £20 - more room and a bottle of wine in the room."

"Best avoided if you want a quiet stay. Good for stag/hen weekends I'd guess."

"I had a corner room, this had large windows overlooking the corner of the hotel. This room was light."
