Claimed there was free parking online, however, there is no free parking. They give you a bar voucher after you hand the a receipt to them for having to pay for parking.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry there seems to be an misunderstanding with regards to the car parking. We do state online that we do not have car parking at the hotel.

Good location for shopping and restaurants

The lady I had dealt with in reception prior to my stay was rude and unhelpful. I had an upgrade to my room once I arrived, this was fine but I wouldn't rush to stay there again.
