    Thank you for your question. We can only accommodate a small wedding at our garden. The party would be maximum 20 people

    Hi Anne, Many thanks for your inquiry and interest in our services. Due to the small capacity of our hotel, the restaurant mainly serves resident guests and those on conference. Kind regards, Alex

    No need to bring your own electricity plug adaptor, the each hotel room has North American plugs so it was easy to keep my iPhone plugged in.
