Additional amenities & feature info
The double room has a king size bed (5').
The single bedroom has a single bed with another that pulls out from underneath. Please note that once the two beds are side by side they do take up the width of the room so may not be ideal for adults.
The bathroom has a newly installed electric shower over the bath, but is height restrictive due to sloping ceiling!
