          Am planning to book for 4 nights next week. Have a few questions.. - Are towels provided? If not, how much is the rent? - Do I have to carry a padlock for the locker? - Are hangers provided? - Are there any issues coming back late in the night (provided I dont create a mess :D) - Some post says breakfast only after 830 - is that correct?

          I think it should be toddler friendly cause you won't have that much people in there as compared to the other rooms in the property. It should be alright. :)
