    Our annual accommodation of choice did not disappoint again this year. We spent nine days on level 11 and the views are the very best, day and night, high above the road traffic. Rooms are well appointed, basic, but the location makes up for everything....More

    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
