    Pub chain who have underinvested in their hotel rooms. Tired decor.Chipped paint. Worn carpets.Uncomfortable beds. Old fashioned bathroom. No redeeming features other than the friendly staff - go to the Travelodge or Premier Inn if they have beds.

    Hi Kelly, we have about 10 parking spaces on site, but all the roads around us is free parking with not many yellow lines, if any. It is a very safe area so there isn't any worry with parking.
