Noisey Stay - Kitchen Extraction Fan
Hotel was ok, paid £129 for 1 nights stay, no breakfast included. I was allocated room 105, it was sooo noisy all night, the noise was from a large kitchen extraction fan right outside my room. I would refuse that room if I ever used this hotel again.

I've stayed there a few times in the last 10 years and it's just getting a bit tired now. Nothing has changed in 10 years. It needs a bit of paint and restyling. The location and staff are great though.

Great but be careful which room you stay
Great location for access to the train station, castle etc but noise in the room we were allocated a the side of the hotel (406) was dreadful from midnight right through to 4am with bin lorries, street clearing, bottle emptying. Only had a one night stay but would have had to move if longer.
