A plug-in radiator when it's -3 degrees is not enough !
Is there room service available? Is water provided in the room e.g. water bottles?
Bottled water is available to purchase from the reception desk or the vending machine. Room service is not provided, a small dinner menu is available from 6pm till 10pm every evening in the Great Room.
