When I booked the website implied parking was available as part of the room cost - it was not. The website also seemed to show that breakfast was included - it was not. The facilities were closed due to Covid. We stayed for 3 days and there was no housekeeping - no room cleaning, no fresh towels, no garbage removal, no bed makeup. This was explained as a Covid precaution which makes no sense - someone would have to enter the room between guests hence they could provide the same service while we were out of the room as is normal for hotel operations. Lastly the hotel is located in a beautiful 19th century brick building but the internal modernization process stripped all traces of character from the building.
