For more than 35 years we have kept our parking free. Unfortunately due to excessive use of the free parking facilities by non-hotel users we have no option but to introduce a clamping policy in order to discourage other drivers from using the spaces reserved for our guests. We use home office approved clamps that are harmless to vehicles.
Cars which are suspected of being left by drivers who have not purchased any food, drinks or services at the hotel or who have not had an appointment with a hotel staff member should expect their car to be at risk of clamping. Cars parked on hotel property and considered to breach these conditions will be clamped. The driver, irrespective of the ownership of the vehicle, upon return, will be charged at a daily rate of £50. The minimum release fee is £50.
We are sorry that other drivers have made this policy come into force from 1st January 2020
