Would stay here again, except for difficulty in finding its parking facilities. Situated near the quayside with main roads almost encircling it, makes it difficult to slow down on this one way system, to search for its entrance to the car park (staff confirm that signage had to be removed to comfy with some council diktat). If you miss it the first time you have to drive around a big roundabout, and in rush hour, the traffic moves at a snail's pace. As one drives round the one way system, the secondary hotel car park a few metres from the hotel is situated on the right hand side. To get out of the car park, one has to re-join the one way system again. I was not best pleased to find myself driving around in circles going nowhere fast and made my feelings known- the helpful staff offered a free breakfast to make up for the inconvenience. The room was amazingly clean and the bed was comfortable- the cleaners should be applauded for the attention to detail. There is free half hour Wifi but I was not able to connect. The breakfast was varied and the cooked breakfast had been prepared with 'soul', beautifully cooked and flavoursome. Thank you. The only thing that would prevent my booking again is the parking issue.
