The location is superb, you couldn't ask for any better and I understand that this probably poses a problem regarding the parking, but it could be managed so much better. They own a fairly decent plot for parking but haven't really optimised how many cars they could fit in there. They have an attendant who could easily be responsible for double and triple parking cars based on customer need but instead, when they're full, they just point you to the nearest car park over the road, imply "good luck!" and wipe their hands of it all.
The accommodation itself is nice, we were quite comfortable but for the regular price it is definitely not worth it. We got a deal through booking [dot] com which put it within our budget, the accommodation was appropriate for the amount we paid but any more and I wouldn't think it was value.
