Food disappointing. Prey ordered from festive menu. 2 out of party for 4 got meals exactly as described but 2 meals were nothing like their description at all. Disappointing and no real explanation for meals not as described.

"There is no parking at the hotel - bring some change for the nearby pay and display"
"For the best prices, book direct with the hotel rather than through a third party site."
"No elevators, so ask the desk staff to arrange someone to take your luggage up if you need help."
"choose one of the larger rooms, I got room 3 which was great"
"The hotel felt very spacious so I think all rooms were a good size. Ours was an entry level room and was really lovely."
