    Hi there it looks like only the "Deluxe double" rooms has the "Free Wifi" symbol. Does the other room types such as "Premier Deluxe" and "Club Twin" also has free wifi? Also it seems only the "Club Twin" has breakfast included, how much would it cost to add breakfast to the other room types? The Bus Shuttle provided is it complimentary and what are the frequency to and from the hotel, Thanks!
