      Parking charges

      The hotel was lovely. Very unhappy about the parking charge!! £72 for 4 nights, when we last stayed it was £20 for 4 nights. No where stated this increase. Luckily we had spare money to pay for this otherwise we would have missed out on a days worth of activities to pay for parking.
