Hotel Amenities

Accommodation is in 126 rooms split into three three-story wings forming a courtyard around the swimming pool. Two of the wings are referred to as the Old Wing and have Suites, Superior and Standard Rooms all with old furnishings, not so comfortable double bed, box television and air-conditioning. The not-so-new New Wing has slightly more appealing Deluxe Rooms (Queen bed), and slightly more spacious Executive Suites (King bed, separate bedroom) which both have a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.
