Apart from I will need to make sure it is low enough to go under mini is there any reason not to get a bottle jack over a trolley type?

I do have a scissor jack in my daily driver because it is better than the useless one legged effort that the car came with - but otherwise I use my trolley jack.

A portable scissor or bottle jack is great for emergency use at the roadside, but for anything else (planned work maintainance etc) I would only ever use a trolley jack, in fact I sometimes use two (or even three) of them together (a trick I saw used at kwikfit) to safely remove two (or even all four) wheels at once.
Until one fails n the car collapses...the expert teams at them places only do that becouse theres not enough axel stands for all the fitters.
I would always just use a trolly jack to lift the car and then place on axel stands...
