Not impressed.
Was not great , was Charged £12 for parking despite paying £170 for a basic room with broken door handle and lightbulb box left on side table . The room backed on to the carpark which meant we could not leave windows open for air in case somebody came in . There is no where to enjoy a cup of tea as they reserve tables so we were confined to our room. Hotel is in a great location.
