The town is 5 minutes away and taxi prices are reasonable. We paid £6 from hotel to the Waterfront. Hotel receptionist will give you a number for a very good taxi firm, they turn up within a few minutes

I’m staying next weekend. I was just wondering can I park there ?
Dear robtheyido, We do have car park, this is £6 per night and it is on a first come first served basis, however, in the case of not finding any space, we can ask our sister hotel, The Clifton, which is just 2 minutes away, if they have any spaces available. Also, off street parking is pay and display from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday. Best regards, Reception team

There are parking bays but you have to pay during office hours. I got there after 6pm. and parked without needing to pay.
