    Doe each room have a private bath? Is there an elevator for access to upper level rooms?

    The room we stayed in on the ground floor had a bath. There was a contraption fitted to the stairs for enabling guests with disabilities to move from the ground floor to the lounge and dining room, but not to the rooftop bar.
