Originally booked this hotel because one website indicated that it had parking. This was Booking.com which had Parking down as one of the hotels facilities, only when you scroll down to check this out it states "Public parking is possible at a location nearby (reservation is not possible) and costs GBP 16 per day."

This is a truly awful hotel. The building from the web site looks great but it’s nothing like it in reality. My room was really small and uncomfortable; the décor is like something from the 1970’s. My window was broken as was the sliding door of the closet; the bathroom is basic at best. Breakfast consisted of dried up fried...

Stopped there Friday night as we were going out in the village. Parking was easy and reasonable, the room was excellent and actually came with 3 beds. The hotel was classy inside and the staff helpful. Bargain!!!

After driving around and finding somewhere to park we took a short walk to the Britannia. On first impressions it looks very grand in places I especially liked the stair case.
