          How big are the lifts? I use a wheelchair which is quite long, so knowing the dimensions of the lift in advance would be very useful.

          From what I recall you can easily fit up to 8 people in each of the 2 lifts. I'd suggest you contact the hotel with dimensions and I'm sure they'll confirm if the lifts are large enough for you.
