2/5 Poor

Sad face IconDisliked: Room comfort
Very noisy
Room looked nice and wad clean, apart from inside bathroom door handle, which was completely covered in dirty masking tape. My room (4) was directly over the bar and the noise level was absolutely incredible until 1am when the music stopped. General shouting etc stopped about half an hour after that. I was so tired the next day that I really regretted staying over instead of driving home that night. Breeding seemed spotlessly clean, but the mattress was really lumpy and uncomfortable.
