Although the hotel says it has lifts they are not easy to get to from Reception without a long hike up and down stairs and along corridors or through unlit/unused conference rooms. They are poorly marked but adequate once you have found them if a bit slow. Hotel Parking is by way of a very narrow approach under an archway at the side of the building but okay if you are lucky enough to get one of the parking bays under cover in the carport like area. The hotel is comfortable but the heating in the room was not adjustable and we found it a bit too warm for us.
