We came for a two-day break and paid extra for a family room, since that was the only one available. Staff were friendly and pleasant, but the room was disappointing: the only hanging space for clothes (no door, only three hangers) was fully taken up by an ironing board, which we had to prop against a wall. This would have been awkward if we had had children with us. It was not possible to unpack properly, as there was not a single shelf or drawer. Bathroom was OK, except for a bath so tiny that I couldn't lie down in it (I'm 5' 1"!) Also, the extractor fan did not seem to be working.We had to ask repeatedly for a TV remote, and there was no "Do not disturb" sign. Our room on the second floor was rather noisy...though it's not the staff's fault that the people above us were using our ceiling as a trampoline!
The online ad says there's plenty of parking and doesn't mention a charge, which made us think that the hotel has its own car park. In fact, the parking is anywhere along the front, at a charge of £1.00 per day. The cost is nothing, but it's no fun searching for a parking space after a long drive. We were lucky to find a spot near the hotel.
