having checked in and had an evening meal at the nearby pub, I returned to my room (101) at about 22.00 extremely tired and anxious for a good nights sleep. The bed was fresh and comfotable and I eagerly anticipated at least 8 hours sleep to rejuvinate me. Alas it was not to be as the noise, initially from the doors in the corridor outside my room was constant as a strean of people seemed to enthuse in conversing outside my bedroom door. Exhausted, I must have nodded off only to be woken again by the noises emanating from and splutter of water and toilet systems in adjacent rooms.
I could clearly hear talking, snoring and the constant flushing of toilets and footsteps above and at 04.30 I thought that a Martian landing was taking place as the water pipes cranked and clanged into overdrive.
In the morning, I mentioned my concerns to the check out staff, who appeared to be of East European origin with limited English and ready smiles albeit totally unresponsive to my complaint. Regretably, I was in a hurry to leave and could not take the matter further.
I actually left the hotel far more tired than when I arrived and therefore if quality of sleep in a peaceful environment is impotant to you then you must avoid this establishment.
I would anticipate a sympathetic rebuttal from the general manager. If, and it is a big IF, my criticism helps another hapless traveller from wasting £60 in the search for a decent nights sleep then I will feel vindicated. I would have been better off sleeping in my car in the car park (but when the funcion rooms which form part of the hotel empty of revellers - it's like Beirut ! - O.K, rant over, but I guess it conveys my dissatisfaction
