Good Afternoon, I am so sorry to read your review and will be trying to get to the bottom of what has happened using my CCTV. I have no one working for me under that description, could you confirm what date you stayed please. Again I am sorry that you had an issue as I pride myself on how good...

Really welcoming staff, nice room with great shower, nice lively pub good location with close large car park. It's called the market hotel, address the market place and common sense will say it's not going to be silent on a Friday or Saturday night, however the noise was never a problem and certainly didn't interfere with our enjoyment, let alone...

When I first arrived I really liked the place, very laid back, a nice log burning fire in the reception/bar, the room was clean and large and the wifi worked really well. However, the thin walls, single glazed windows and the noisy nearby bar completely ruined my stay. I was here on a work trip with very early starts so...

The website states 'It can get a little loud' This is the understatement of the century! Thundering music so loud in the room that any thought of sleep was impossible. Music stopped at !2:30 ish. The walls between rooms are very thin so I was woken at 5:45 by the TV in the next room. The whole place has a...

Traveled up from Devon, found a very late deal and within 20 minutes arrived. Ok, we were welcomed by 'young Harry', extremely helpful, friendly and humorous, a great greeting and apologetic that our room may not be ready?!?! Provided us with a complimentary drink while he took our bags to the room to make ready :) Yes, some area's a...

I'd echo a lot of previous comments, and having been aware of these, I was definitely in "expectation management mode". First thing to just bear in mind that you'll be getting a "room above a pub", as opposed to a "hotel". Yeah, the carpet to get upstairs is pretty grubby, but I can cope with that. And yes, the noise...

Thank you for your review. I will look into these comments and rectify them. We do appreciate that it is noisy and had The Market Hotel not had it's name so long would of changed it when we purchased the business. We make sure that in all our write ups it does explain that we have live music every Thursday/Friday/Saturday...

There is a warm welcome at the Market Hotel and the rooms available are trendy but certainly not for people needing a comfortable nights sleep. The idea seems to be to offer an arty atmosphere which is full of good taste but has lost the plot! Alton is a great a location and there is loads going on. It is...

I stayed at the Market Hotel on business, Its ok for a night. However even mid week it's incredibly noisy, especially if the room is above the bar area. The room itself was clean and very large (I had a double). Having googled B&B in Alton, I was surprised that it only produced the first part of that abbreviation, the...

We stayed in two different rooms over the past week for three nights while visiting family members living in Alton. The Saturday night music was just under our room - the floor was vibrating with the base drum. The music was so incredibly loud that we could not even hear the television that we turned on to try to mask...
