Stayed at "The Tides" in late January. Lovely motor lodge but not enough parking. Had to park on the street but that spot was close enough. Noticed one small motorbike taking up a car spot. Not very nice of the owner. There was a special spot for motor bikes and it was not used.

The rooms are reasonable size, with good showers and reasonable wifi. The location is easy to get to, but very convenient for the city centre. Nice breakfast buffet. There is also a nice walk along the river from the hotel.
