They make it sound like they have Parking, and they do. About a dozen spaces, if that! But, it's going to cost you £25 per 24 hours & their parking guy packs the cars in, so you can't remove your car till you leave. Now, are you listening still? Good, there's more to tell about

"All rooms come with ear-plugs so don't worry if you do happen to overlook a noisy road."
"If you want peace and quiet don't choose a seaview room at the weekend! Noisy discos and revellers can be disturbing."
"Room 414 has a great view of the sea front and is very spacious"
"Room 447. Top floor in corner. No noise"
"Noise from the streets"
