          Could someone from management please explain why your website shows check in times are 2pm for is to then get to the hotel after lugging our suitcase around in the rain to then be told it's 3pm check in? For them the receptionist to tell us our room SHOULD be ready just after 3pm? We're now sat in some crappy expensive pub with our case waiting for our room to be ready! Extra expense and waiting around with our case was not what we imagined for our Christmas work Day out!!!

          We were told you need to keep to the right hand side or the hotel's neighbour will clamp your car. Its £8 a night and on the day of leaving £1 per extra hour your car is there.

          We were supposed to pay for the car parking, but no one mentioned this when we arrived or left! We didn't question it, just left - so we had free parking. But I think it is supposed to be £8 a day
