Althouh they say that parking is available, they omit to mention that there are few parks and you are charged extra and then only if one is available. We were given one and when we went to use it there was another car there. They then gave us another. We came back at 9pm the next night and that park was in use. Complained to staff and were told that "someone" had forgotten to enter our booking in the computer so we would hsve to park on the street, 60 minute parking, although there were 2 empty parks blocked of with road cones. Won't be going back there again.

Close to town was great. No parking available and you had to pay for this if it was. Wasn’t highlighted at all on booking and receptionists were quite rude when asking about it. Really did make the stay here more difficult. This should be highlighted on the booking VERY clearly.

Room wasn't ready at check in time, and we had to pay more for parking despite filtering for carparks and no communication about this.
