Dear Anonymous Thank you for your feedback.

Unfair to review as external maintenance work was in progress. Nothing really looks great with scaffold round it. Parking was a nightmare. They only have a very small tight car park. Its good enough for a business stay.

Dear Chaz Thank you for taking the time to rate the Wessex Royale Hotel. We do have limited free parking, there is a pay and display car park less than 2 minutes away and we will reimburse the fee.

Nice hotel, good value and central. Rooms at the front are directly on main road and are a bit noisy
