Terrible nights sleep due to noise

I have stayed at this hotel in the past and had a good stay, so was bitterly disappointed to have such a bad experience this time. The room was adequate and spotlessly clean, check in quick and friendly and the public rooms were lovely. To be fair, I had a budget room, so didnt expect luxury, but I did expect the absolute basic for any hotel - a decent night's sleep. However, there was some sort of generator outside my window which seemed to work on hourly cycles. I hadnt noticed the noise till I came in at the end of a busy day, when listening to tv etc and phoning home masked it, then everything went quiet and I went to bed. I was woken at three in the morning, then again at four .. I put tissue in my ears ... the noise vibrated... at 6.45 I went down to reception to complain to the duty manager. She said that I should have rung the porter in the middle of the night and requested a room change, and that she would report my comments. I say I wont be staying there again.

Lovely hotel if you get the right

Lovely hotel if you get the right room. We sadly were put at the back of the hotel. The room was beautiful, very clean and welcoming. but at the back of the hotel is the bus station and the hotel does not have double glazing. I stayed on a Friday night and thanks to all of the noise outside, I got around 2 hours of sleep. Lovely hotel, friendly staff but if you get a room at the rear of the hotel, don't expect any sleep
