I felt out of place with the looks I received from some of your staff when checking in. The cleaning staff were more friendly than the ones that checked us in. The carpark was terrible. I think you should at least inform your guests about how you don’t have enough parking space to accomodate all guests and give parking options.

Fantastic stay. We stayed in the accessible room as I am in a wheelchair. I very rarely find rooms advertised as ‘accessible’ to truely be wheelchair friendly. However this room was fantastic! Everything was set up for someone in a wheelchair - right down to the peephole on the door being the right height. Additionally the staff were amazing, it was a lovely clean room and had everything we needed.

Only problem we had was the noise at night from the nightclubs and traffic. (Not the hotels fault) however I think we would request a room on the other side of the building away from the Main Street next time 😊. Also we missed out on parking so had to pay for a parking lot next door which was an unexpected extra cost. Staff we lovely and welcoming.
