I stayed over at the Listen this weekend with a group of friends. The hotel and location was amazing and all rooms were very clean and suitable. The manager was so lovely and understanding, as we were making slight noise- she was just so so lovely. Breakfast was very tasty and enjoyable. Friendly staff.
