Although parking is not very far away. After a long drive and having to carry your baggage is not great, especially if the weather is bad. I was on the road all day and couldn't access my emails. When I arrived later than planned, I rang the bell and waited some time for someone to answer, not knowing that the key was in a box out side the door. I was given a frosty reception by the person who answered the door, saying we sent you an email. I tried to contact the hotel by phone a number of times, to inform them I would be late but after 5pm there is no way to speak to someone. Apart from that the room was excellent and brilliantly located. There needs to be a way of communicating by phone. Just saying we sent you an email, doesn't work. Lovely place, though!
