2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Noise was awful all night. We could hear all doors and everything occurring above us. Then our inebriated neighborhood came back with his loud friend at 3 am. I had to ask them politely to stop because they had zero consideration while hanging outside of our door. The worker on the phone wanted me to come in to explain where to park rather than sharing the car park name with me. Just an all around strange experience.

The rooms are in excellent condition, with a comfortable bed. It would have been good to have a note of the wifi password in the room. Some rooms overlook Academy Street which is a busy road in the mornings so maybe not for you if you are bothered by noise, but there are rooms which don’t overlook the main road. We didn’t have breakfast but we have previously had an evening meal in the restaurant downstairs which was excellent.
