Check in was quick with a very friendly young woman at the front desk. She explained a few things regarding our IHG points. We had a credit which we were told could be used towards parking. We told her that would be great and we said we had already parked the car at the entertainment car park. She said that was no problem and to hand over our ticket at checkout and they would validate it and we would pay the difference. At check out we handed over our ticket and we were told it didn't cover that car park. Altho we tried to explain what we were told at checkin it didn't matter. So we didn't get to use our credit. It was a huge let down after a great weekend. I was impressed with the cleaner who saw us leaving our room early in the morning and asked if it was ok to clean our room then. It was nice to come back mid afternoon to a clean room. I've lost count how many times our room still isn't clean till late afternoon.
There was a reasonably choice for breakfast altho I didn't know I could ask for eggs cooked to my liking till I over heard someone ask. Maybe there was a sign somewhere and I didn't see it.
Overall (apart from the parking issue) This hotel is in a great location and handy to some great restaurants.
