I booked a king room and had a room at the top of the house. I was pleased with the double aspect windows and there were lots of little luxuries on hand - Nespresso, shortbread, eye masks, great toiletries. They really have thought of everything to make the rooms very special.

Do you have twin beds in any of your rooms, I am a very restless sleeper, whereas my husband is not. Thank You.
Thank you for you question regarding twin beds. Unfortunately, in all our properties we only have King or Super King Size Beds in the rooms.
