"Had a room close to front desk and was worried about noise but not to be. Old colonial architecture kept the noise out"
"Rooms upstairs & to the back quieter , but the rooms downstairs really big and spacious"
"If you have difficulty in climbing stairs, ask for rooms at Ground Floor."
"Just watch out for rooms facing Red Garden, which can get noisy"
"we have stayed in two different rooms , I like the ground level."
