It was a pleasant stay with a very nice lady who was very helpful. The ordering service also worked well and the lady prepared breakfast for us extra early on the morning that we left as we were on an early flight.

We enjoyed our stay very much, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and we met some very interesting fellow guests! Wonderful breakfasts! Only suggestion is to rearrange the tea-making facilities in the room so that it is possible to plug in the kettle safely.

Hi Tia. We are about 30 minutes from airport. Yes we will certainly hold your luggage for you. I have one room that has the conventional door. That is the family room. All other rooms have sliding partition doors with openings below and above. Still private though.
