Due to only 2 or 3 reviews and those being mixed, I booked to stay here with a groupon voucher and it was extremely cheap so thought, what is there to loose... I stress to you do not stay here unless you want here dated, loud 80s music untill after midnight. On entering the venue, i was greeted with rowdy gangs of people smoking at the doorway, oh and this was after having to drive our car up and down a main road to find a space, that wasnt a double yellow, since the carpark has about 3 spaces that are permanently full. I then had to walk through a sticky floored club/ bar that would be occupied by 18 year old kids getting drunk, it was dark and every person at the bar stared asif we were silly with our over night bags! I had to check in at the full and busy bar and felt extremely uncomfortable! Once up in the room, it was average and for the amount i paid fair, i was left to get settled and told there was another exit to the street without going through the bar, which i was relieved about. When using this exit i was surprised to find yet more rowdy smokers getting shelter in the doorway from a private function below our room! This function went till after midnight and i could of sang every word of the songs if they were actually any good! If i had read a review of this content and known that i was going to be sleeping above a pub that thinks its a nightclub, i would have most definitely not have booked it, no matter how cheap!
