    We certainly stand head and shoulders above the rest. And we like to think of it as somewhere, between "Tangerine" and "Paprika". "Red" is soooo last year. Thanks for the feedback.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay Carol. All rooms have Queen beds (ask about our rooms with Comfort toppers too - they are dreamy). Most rooms also have a Pull-out sofa bed or single as well.

    Hello 😊 I just wondered if you may have a really nice room available on the highest floor possible for the nights of 28th and 29th of March. I really would like a twin if possible as it is just for my niece and myself - or are you able to put an extra bed if you don't have twin rooms. Many thanks if you are able to help advise with the above. Best wishes...😃 Tina
