Dear Paul We do not have a dedicated bay as such. Bays are on a first come basis and dependent on hotel business. However if you email me with your stay date I will see what we can organise for you. Unfortunately this site does not allow me to leave my email address so if you contact the hotel reception they can let you have it.

"Rooms were very hot but if you have a room not on the road side you can leave the window open and hear very little noise."
"Room 107 was bigger than previous with 2 big windows but no view"
"Get a room at the back to ensure you get a quiet night"
"Request a room on the back as the front road is very busy."
"Rooms on the back are quieter"
