Selected a ‘supreme’ room type when booking online: don’t believe the room could be described as supreme. Also selected ‘breakfast included’ when booking online and this did not show in booking email and was told on arrival that breakfast was not included but would have been if we had booked direct.

Excellent customer service and a great location. Really appreciated an offer of an early check in and late check out if required. Also handy to have on site parking.
