    Parking seems to be a bit of a problem. I have parked around the corner in a out of hours disabled bay. Hotel seems nice and clean with friendly staff. Group breakfast was very basic 2/10 for that. Everything else include big wifi is great.

    From what I recall you can easily fit up to 8 people in each of the 2 lifts. I'd suggest you contact the hotel with dimensions and I'm sure they'll confirm if the lifts are large enough for you.
