This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This was what I faced when I was trying to check in :-

I couldn't park my car in the car park as it was full. It's used by all the people visiting or taking part in the YMCA activities.The parking attendant just waved his hands and didn't offer any help or suggestions even though I told him I already had a reservation. After driving out of the car park, I couldn't get back to the reception desk because of the one-way street in front of the YMCA and so I had to drive a big loop before I could approach the YMCA building again.
