Featuring double, twin, family and accessible bedrooms, each complete with modern décor and an individual bathroom, there is a space suitable for any stay. There are also a number of dog-friendly rooms for those who want to bring along a four-legged friend. Even better, all rooms have a luxurious Hypnos beds, ensuring guests have a comfortable and truly refreshing stay.
