Car Parking

Street parking around the Hotel is free and unrestricted. There are only three houses on our part of Mona Drive, so the hill acts as a good overflow during busy periods. Unfortunately there is no car park as the area was built in Victorian times.

Check In

There is no set check-in time. However departing guests have until 11.00am to vacate their room and we also have to clean it. Whilst we will make every effort to make your room ready as soon as possible and will let you straight into your room if it is vacant, the only way to ensure early check-in is to book is to reserve it the night before. Luggage may be left at any time.

Departure Time

Due to the fact that many visitors arrive early in the morning, guests are asked to note that rooms must be vacated by 11.00 am on the day of departure.
In the event of a room not being vacated (without prior arrangements having been made) the management reserves the right to move all personal belongings and cannot accept responsibility for inconvenience or loss that may occur. Luggage may be left with us.
