No not as such, but after finishing my snack I sat up at the comfortable bar. Not all the tables were in use so you could have sat at one of them. It does not have a more former dining room however.

Yes. There is a bar. It's also just over the road from Gunwharf Quays where there are loads of bars.

The hotel has an arrangement with the multi storey carpark directly to the side/behind it. You simply pick up a voucher from the hotel reception when you leave, no need to do it before. The chap on the barrier of the carpark will take it from you as you exit. It's £5 for 24 hours, exceptional value for the location.

You couldn't get closer! The hotel is literally across thermal from the historic dockland and harbour.
