Parking put me off…
Parking was a nightmare. Location 200m from the hotel but the roof was incredibly low and you need to drive into a narrow lift with the car to park in a dimly lit basement car park. If you have an SUV, beware. It’s horrendously narrow. Breakfast was buffet style meaning food was sitting dried out and not particularly fresh. Expected more from this hotel. On a positive staff were friendly and the bed was comfortable
