Noise from the pubs letting out between 2 and 3 am was a bother both nights. We booked a family room and it clearly wasnt thought out by whoever did the property layout. Family rooms should be on the otherside of the building not on the side of the backalley. Also was looking forward to using the steam ahower in the spa but the staff forgot to turn it on in the morning. Was dissapponted could not use it. Ran out of time before it could get to temperature.
