    They put us in a room for the handicapped so the bathroom was most uncomfortable!!! IF that was the last room in their booking.com listing, they should have said it was a room for the handicapped, it was a little sneaky strategy I think.

    The restaurant staff is excellent - very efficient, friendly and responsive. Reception could do better.

    A door to another room in our room, so that you are afraid that someboby can come in.
