Booked the hotel on a Groupon voucher, on second thoughts it would of been a lot easier and better to book direct with the hotel as they had an equally good offer on for a similar price (Groupon took payment but did not issue a voucher - this is currently being disputed, fortunately the hotel were very helpful and understanding)...

I rang the Hotel on the Friday to confirm my booking and check on local restaurants they however failed to explain the parking arrangements? So arriving at... More
