          Hi Colin. unfortunately we never received an email. perhaps it got lost in cyberspace 😬 I only wrote this review as we had no response after being told we would. I have checked my trash and junk folders but no email. I'd love to be able to write a positive review of the hotel in the future if we ever return

          There are none as standard in the guest rooms to my knowledge but you would need to check with the hotel if they can provide one. There was no safe either in the standard bedroom.
