    Is there an elevator or lift in the hotel? We have heavy luggage and don't want to carry them up and down the stairs. Thank you.

    My daughter Laura OBrien is arriving at your hotel for a 2 week holiday, she is going to meet her friend at some stage that lives there and has a few trips arranged but could do with some guidance to enable her to have a fantastic time sightseeing. Do you have tour guides ? If you do how does she arrange this for touring around This would make her more comfortable has they would know the sites to visit and enable her not to feel alone or get lost. Thanks Carmel O'brien ( Lara's mother ) Her name is laura O'brien
