    I really enjoyed my stay here at this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend. The only downside was that the wifi didn't reach our room, but at the bar/restaurant area the wifi was very good.More

    There are none as standard in the guest rooms to my knowledge but you would need to check with the hotel if they can provide one. There was no safe either in the standard bedroom.
