Booked this hotel for a weekend away.
The room was on the fourth floor and seemed to be either a store cupboard which had been converted to a room or an attempt to maximise the size of the hotel using the roof space. The windows were too high to see outside. The bed was good and the bathroom nice and the free bottle of wine eased the pain of the above drawbacks.
There was no parking at the hotel and you had to park in the public car park five minutes walk away. It was possible to pay at the hotel for the car park, but it was still not cheap.
There was no where to unload the car (except in the bus stop at the rear entrance)
One of the bedside lamps wasn't working, which is a small detail, but should be checked by the staff periodically anyway.
On the upside, the staff were friendly enough, although we had little to do with them beyond check-in and check-out..
The location was right in the centre of town and was brilliant.
Overall the stay here was ok, but I probably wouldn't stay here again.
