    There is a car park up the hill, approximately 5 mins walk from the hotel. It was full when we were there recently but I think you can reserve places on line, I believe it is about £15:00 for 3 days.

    There are but if I recall it depends on which room you book. I have been booked in different wings of the hotel in past 2 years. Then there are also robes down at the spa on lower level
