There are rooms in the courtyard that are just a short walk from the main hotel building, they are more modern in their styling and feature state of the art bathrooms and are pet-friendly. The rooms within the main hotel building are beautifully decorated and have the special touch of hospitality trays featuring locally baked biscuits.
