Just like Baldric's poem in Black Adder 4 there is only one word for this disco with rooms above it. "boom" I'm sure if you are in the disco it is fine but upstairs the whole place shakes and sleep is not a possibility even using ear plugs. The make sure you are drunk advice might have helped had we...

Very basic accommodation, and that is fair enough considering the low price. What, however, should rule it out is that (at least on the Friday and Saturday I was there) it was impossible to get to sleep before about 3 a.m. because of the noise of people leaving the pub.

Yes clean bedding, bar closed early part of the week so would expect a quiet night, not so as there are lots of goings and coming through the night? Damp reappearing through fresh paint work, no breakfast, felt “Dun” by after staying here. Better accommodation nearby.

Those people who wrote "really good", you really know the owner well. My opinion you ask? What's that word after "bull" people usually say? That's it. Loud at night, no basic facilities, wifi not in the room, bathroom shared and not even cleaned, more importantly, it's a PUB for god's sake, pub with some room nearby. Just don't use this.
