We were surprised to see that you had banged your leg twice on the bed because of the size of the room. Whilst this is not the biggest room we have certainly not had any other complaints and...

A great mini bar is available in some rooms with a great selection of goodies...had to go easy on that but very tempting. The breakfasts were fabulous and... More
