Booked this 3 night stay from USA. Had to illegally park outside hotel as unloading area full of construction vehicles. Was not told about lack of parking until we arrived -parking not far but not fun in pouring rain lugging 2 cases out of car park, across 2 busy roads. Car park good value at 2 pounds per day, but it meant getting to the car park each morning before 8 to apply a ticket...I did ask if we could pay the night before and was told no. Parking free in car park between 6pm and 8am, but 60 pounds fine if no ticket between 8am and 6pm. Reception infrequently staffed and took 2 hours and 2 trips to get cups, glasses and coffee on our 2nd day. Front desk staff very cheerful when they were there, they seem to work the restaurant too??? Not particularly knowledgeable about parking etc. Rooms super clean, basic..no 'phone; no clock!!!ll no iron or board...but cheap and great location. Carluccio's very near and delicious. Would return next trip if parking improved ..could not park outside again when we left so more lugging of cases. Noisy from builders during day, had to leave one day as drilling was so loud, but this will not be forever, just while Brewery Square being completed.
