Ok so from the beginning we arrived about 5ish there was no parking on site of the hotel so we had to go round one way system to go in to get directions and to get a pass and then once we found the car park we had to walk the 10 mins to the hotel, then when we checked in, we were given our key went up stairs and someone else was in there...so i apologised and went down stairs the reception was very sorry and she was lovely so was given our new key and our room was on the ground floor which felt like a basement but the room was lovely and the room was heated very well.
when we came back to the hotel to go to bed we got in our lovely warm bed which was comfy and went to bed then got woken up but a group of boys from half 3 in the morning for a hour kept knocking on our door i was getting very mad and i tried to call reception about three times and no one picks up they final settle down about half 4ish and was able to get back to sleep. we get up and it seems to early for breakfast on new years day but nothing was around to say but the staff were amazing throughout out (exception of night staff) and the Breakfast was the best me and my partner have ever had and i will defiantly be coming here again just not on a weekend or new years lol
