Just returned from this hotel after a two night break. I travelled with two other adults and two children, aged 5 and 9. The rooms were clean and comfortable, they were exactly as I expected. We booked for the evening meals and the food was wonderful, well worth the money.

In a word not sure, but there is free street parking in the road immediately behind the hotel. Suffice to say it's first come first served, but we were continually lucky in our weeks stay. It is a five minute walk. Hope that helps.
