Outside noise

07/12/2016 Aunchann,

Cannot fault the hotel itself. However, there is a taxi rank right opposite the hotel frontage which is a huge problem with regards to noise. All 3 nights, from 1 am to 5 am the noise was awful; rev... more

Dear Aunchann, Thank you for your recent review following your stay over last weekend. I am pleased to read that you "could not fault" the hotel. The taxi rank can be a disturbance to some guests, we have 26 bedrooms over the front of the hotel, and other guests just do not hear the noise,suppose its what your use too, I am saddened it disturbed you by the Xmas revellers . We regularly meet with the council and Police to discuss the taxi rank, not sure even a taxi rank supervisor would be able to control the noise. I would love for it to be moved too ! Lets hope the taxi rand does not deter from staying with us again. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
