When you go away for a short break or holiday there are often a number of questions you would like to ask. Here is a summary of some of the more common ones we receive and we hope the answers may help you. 

If you need any additional information, please give us a call on 01803 400500.

What are the arrangements for car parking?

TLH Leisure Resort has 7 car parks and 294 car parking spaces which are free to hotel guests on a “first come, first served” basis and cannot be guaranteed or pre booked.

All guests are required to display a free parking permit which is available from your hotel reception. You have 2 hours from arrival to display a permit in your car. Failure to display a permit may result in our TLH parking attendant issuing a penalty ticket. Your luggage can be unloaded at the hotel front entrance on arrival prior to parking your car.

Any driver with a Blue Badge can request a reserved space in advance by contacting any of our Hotel Reception telephone numbers. Specific disabled parking is limited and once disabled bays are all taken, Blue Badge parking may not be in a designated bay and the width of the bay will therefore be limited.

In the event our car parks being full, there is plenty of free off street parking in the surrounding area including Falkland Road, Lime Avenue and Bath Lane. In addition there are 3 pay and display car parks within a short walk. Our receptionists are happy to provide you with more detailed information on arrival.
