Great place to stay, but.................

First let me make it clear that for the most part, our stay at the Bulkeley Arms was good - very friendly, helpful staff, great atmosphere in the pub, clean, recently refurbished rooms, good food, but, and it's a big but, the volume of the music being played in the evening was absolutely intolerable.

We were warned on arrival that there would be music played until 12.00 midnight but nothing could have prepared us for the sheer volume of noise booming through our room which was almost directly above the room the music was coming from. The floor and bed actually vibrated from the noise - it was not possible to watch television or even read to distract ones self as the noise was overwhelming. i cannot imagine having to settle young children to sleep while this was happening. I wonder if the hotel owner, or indeed the AA reviewer have tried sleeping in the rooms whilst music was being played at this volume. I can only assume not. I think that on nights when music is going to be played at such a volume, the sensible option would be to make a choice - cater to guests paying for accommodation and lower the volume (a lot) OR to customers of the pub and don't rent out the rooms on such nights. I appreciate the fact that it was a Bank Holiday and that perhaps the regular customers of the pub did not have to get up early the next morning but still feel some consideration should be given to paying guests. The fact that it was " a late one" also meant that there was no food available on the night of our arrival - something we were not made aware of until we went to order food. That being said, the staff were very helpful in advising us of other options that might be available to us.. As we were leaving early after our second night, breakfast cereal was very kindly left out for us to help ourselves to as no-one was available until a couple of hours after we left. i really do not want this to be a negative review as there was so much to like about The Bulkeley Arms, in particular the attitude of the owner and staff , however for us, the music did have a negative impact on our stay. I would certainly recommend the accommodation if the music volume wouldn't be an issue for you.

Thank you for taking your time to submit a review, whether positive or

negative. I know we do not get everything right; they are an important

tool for a successful business

I fully appreciate what you a saying regarding the music level; in

response to your question, yes I have experienced the sound level in the

rooms. The AA inspector(s) have also been made aware and know that I DO

advertise the fact on my web pages.

I have never hidden the fact that music levels are high especially during

the weekends and on bank Holidays, the venue is after all a very popular

Public House (inn) and I do cater for the needs of my clientele.

The description of this busy Inn on all web booking pages, does highlight

the music, this is not the first time this matter has been raised in a

review, and it has been mentioned several times. For which I am making no

apology as it will continue.

The majority of guests who book into the premises on weekends are usually

in the area to attend a wedding, birthday party and or generally a good

night out, by which time they retire the music is off – It goes off at

midnight as advertised – always.

With regards to you requiring a meal on the Sunday evening, again I refer

back to the business of the Inn, weekends it is a popular venue for

Football, and as such the kitchen is open to cater for the football

customers, however when busy with football, I would say and agree it is not

a suitable venue for someone to have a quiet meal and the staff do

recommend other eating establishments, we are lucky in Menai as we have

diverse selection of eateries,

We actually had a review on our restaurant page from the same day as you

arrived, suggesting we should NOT be open when Football is being watched,

so the Devil you do and the Devil you don’t.

I have been trying to get to the bottom of why cereals where left out on

the second day of your stay, yes breakfast is advertised as an 8:30 start,

I do live on the premises and have no qualms in cooking an early breakfast,

so for that I apologise.

Finally, I do not see your review as negative; I see it as an honest

appraisal, which is all we can ask. So for those wishing to stay in future

and have read this review, yes it is accurate, the option to book or not on

weekends will be entirely your own.

Sorry you did not fully enjoy your stay, but as you can see from my reply

above, it is a fact I have never hidden, but can offer you a discount by

way of apology if you wish to visit our beautiful island again, to be on

the safe side only during the week ;)

A delightful stay. We look forward to returning.

The room and the rest of the premises was spotless.

The room seems to have been recently refurbished - the en-suite bathroom was very nicely appointed.

The owner and all the staff that we met were very friendly and eager to help.

Our evening meal was great quality at a very good price. Breakfast was excellent - hot plates too.

The village was quite busy and, yes, from our room, we could hear noise from the pub - as expected. But this was not excessively loud and did not carry on very late. Not a disturbance at all for us. I noticed USB device charger sockets on the customer side of the bar - I guess you could top up your battery while sitting and chatting - great idea. We had a very pleasant stay, and hope to be returning soon.
