          I like this bar. I like the cocktails and the design of the place. But omg the music on Saturday evening. Does everywhere have to play the same loud repetitive sounds? Couldn't hear ourselves speak. This is not a club. Really lets the place down.

          The website mentions parking up in a layby and then being directed to nearby car parks - is car parking available at the hotel and is it free?
