I didn’t like being in a huge disabled room. I feel had I have known this would have looked elsewhere. The room was huge but didn’t feel cosy nor inviting for my daughter and I. The room should have been given to someone who did need the extra room. The location was fantastic.

Central position
We paid for parking and glad we did ,as not many spare places at the front of the hotel . Not very clear as to how to get to the parking. We had to use a number to unlock chain to get in , after we had checked in . It’s in a very central position .
