Dear Sue M, Thanks for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor, please accept my apologies regarding the rail works nothing was scheduled for the time you were staying with us so I will investigate this as Network Rail do have to provide us with disturbance notices had anything been mentioned to a member of the team they would have been delighted to allocate an alternative room. I will pass on your feedback to the housekeeping team regarding the cleanliness of the room as this isn't the regular standard that our guests should expect. Kind Regards, Jason Court Guest Relations & Quality Manager
