          Hi - are the suites on the top floor? It looks like a lot of stairs on the photos - how many flights? Are towels included in the price for suites or is there a hire charge? Many thanks.

          Hi, the suites are on ground and first floor. Towels are included in the suites. Towel rental is for the other rooms.
