If you open your window at night you may prefer an upper room for safety, not that security seems to be a concern.
A very comfortable bed
I doubt it.

Dear Darragh H, Many thanks for your message. I am sorry that you were dissapointed with your visit to Panorama Bistro due to you not getting a table by the window. Anyone is welcome to sit at any available seat in our Bistro except when these seats are reserved in advance by other guests. The Bistro also acts as the hotels Restaurant and Bar and with seats for 100 guests it can be a very busy space. We take bookings in advance and always advise our guests to pre-book in order to get the table of their preference. Our Bistro offers great views from all parts of the room and we also have a wonderful outdoor heated terrace which can be availed of without any prior reservation, however this again is a very popular space and can fill up very quickly especially during nice weather. If you are planning a return visit to our Panorama Bistro please do get in touch and I will reserve you the table of your choice and personally ensure you have an enjoyable experience with us. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Panorama in the near future. Kind regards, Brian. Brian Bowler General Manager
