    Room and bathroom were large if not a little old and scruffy.

    When i searched on booking.com I put the filter in for car parking. I had a large musical instrument with me so didn't want to have to carry it very far. This hotel does not have dedicated parking just some bays which it turns out are council owned. I manage to get a bay on arrival but went to a funeral. On my return there was nowhere to park. When i spoke to hotel staff it was at this point I was informed they didn't own the bays but had happily taken my money for parking. At breakfast despite having booked bed and breakfast I wasn't on their list. The member of staff didn't make a big issue of it he let me in and then obviously went and checked.
