No one on reception to check us in, had to phone and wait for someone to come. Lots of stairs to our room but this was expected, it is a wetherspoons and an old building! Room was spacious and very clean with a nice ensuite. We ate in the bar, which was lovely. Service and staff were fab. Food was amazing, hot, quick with our order and thoroughly enjoyed. However, couldn't sleep at all. Firstly due to safety concerns as the old latches on the window didn't close properly and due to us having a room which was next to the fire escape stairs outside, it wouldn't have been hard for someone to gain entry to our room if they wanted too. The room was hot and we didn't want to open the window due the safety aspect mentioned. The main hotel reception door was never fully closed (I know this as I went for a cigarette during the night and each time it was still left partially open). Anyone could of walked in! Our main problem was the guests below us. Constant noise throughout the night and early hours of the morning until half 6, which echoed through our room, meant we had no sleep. No one around or on reception to discuss the matter with. Checked out at half 7 in the morning, along with another couple who were in a room above us, who had the same problem. Spoke to the staff member who we had to get from the bar area as there was still no one on reception! She was apologetic and got the manager, the manager said there was a night manager in the building, who we never seen or heard. There is no way he could of not heard the noisy guests and dealt with them accordingly... The manger was really nice and we were offered a free breakfast, but declined as we couldn't wait to get away from there and get home for some sleep! Overall the first part of our stay was excellent. Lovely staff, fab meal and a nice clean room. But it was completely ruined by the noisy guests (who were not dealt with) and lack of security.

Do NOT stay in the access room, it is outside the pub right next door to the beer garden. We booked to stay Monday and Tuesday night. We only managed the Monday! The noise from the beer garden kept us awake till 1am not only that the room is situated under the main toilets so all you could hear was footsteps and the hand dryers. The disabled parking was taken up by about 6 motorbikes with no action being taken by staff! I can't comment on the other rooms in the hotel, but I would avoid the easy access room like the plague. You might as well put the bed in the beer garden and have a chat! At least we managed to get a full refund!!!
