We had a suite, very nice and reasonably priced - the bar was fab - just what my husband needed too - would definitely stay again, and great location for the lovely city.

Parking - 2 good options 1) Prebook with hotel is valet parking, park on kerb near sign on side road front left corner of hotel 2) Qpark chain large 24hour underground car park on square in front of hotel, which we used. We didn't dine in the hotel, but the bar was certainly welcoming and sated our thirst! Have a lovely day Best regards La réception.
