Room plenty big enough, but shabby and needed a good lick of paint/refurbishment. Had so much trouble with the electronic door key - had to have it re-activated 5 times which was so annoying.Great breakfast though and staff were helpful.

I just looked at the website again to remind myself. If the rooms on their website are as stated then it clearly has had a major overhaul since I stayed there. Our room was tired and old.

You let them know that you're parking there once you've found a spot underground (hotel) and then hand over your registration to them when checking in. Then when it comes to check out you pay £15.00 per night. 👍🏼
