      parking area is shocking

      Everything in this hotel was perfect! But the valet parking area (the staff are perfect) is absolute rubbish. £20 per night for your car to be parked in an open car park with pot holes everywhere, a 5 foot high wall around and a 4 foot opening to this “secure” car park. Also the gate automatically opens when you drive a car up to it, so your car could be stolen very very easily. So if your travailing in a car, prepare to spend money on rubbish parking that is about a 2 minute walk from the hotel.
