All the rooms are done to the same standard on site and off. The super king size rooms have a lot more space. Some rooms have baths with showers over them and some just have large walk in showers. It just depends what you are looking for.

Hi there, no unfortunately there is not a lift in this hotel! However, I would recommend room 8. My mother in law stayed in this room and it is on ground level at the back on the hotel. Staff at this hotel are very accommodating and are always willing to help, just email them on their website
