    Response from AuntyWops | Reviewed this property |
    The basic rooms that I saw recently don't tend to have a patio. Other than that, room still looks very comfortable and the environment is so wonderful, you don't tend to spend that much time in your room anyway
    Room Tips
    "stay as close to reception as possible , facing south west"
