Never Again!
Basic's: no hair dryer, insufficient hanging space to hang even one persons clothes/coat for three days, let alone 2 people. No mirror other than bathroom. Massive stain on carpet. Free Parking! Their car park was being developed so was told at reception that I could leave my car in another car park, to which on leaving the hotel found a parking ticket on my car. Went back to hotel to discuss this but yet again no manager on duty.
