          Hi, I just reserved two rooms for 3 people each through their website and I didn't receive any confirmation via email. When I emailed their information email address, it came back undeliverable... Wondering if they send a confirmation? Travelling from Canada and would like to ensure our accommodations are set.

          The people at the Motel Schmotel are so helpful, Iam sure that it won't be a problem. They certainly have eggs, yoghurt, fruit and kippers on offer! The hotel is super close to beach, shops Royal Pavillion and the pier.
          Do you have free parking? If not, what are the arrangements/costs.

          There are a couple of spaces but they had gone when we got there so we went. There is a park nearby. I haven't got the paperwork on me but will look for it or they will give it to you in the hotel.
