Dear Ken and Carol. Thank you for a lovely review and delighted you enjoyed all we provide. Regrettably the ensuite shower rooms, as similar style properties to ours, are restricted by adding the shower rooms into the bedroom space. However the private facility rooms have much much larger shower rooms and might be a better option for you next time.... More
