This hotel is bad in so many ways. The room decor is awful. There are no drawers for storage in the room the only hanging space is a bar about four foot long. The room door cannot be locked from the inside. The advertised on site parking only applies to the first five cars to arrive that day, the advertised off-site free parking is only free after six pm in the public carpark across the street. The only meals offered by the hotel are breakfast, not mentioned in their advert. Breakfast is served in what was a function suite at tables seating eight ,not my idea of a perfect meal. The staff were not at all friendly or helpful.
