I never got to stay there because Agoda screwed up and didn't bother to inform the hotel of the booking or acknowledge despite sending me a reservation code. Shocking performance from Agoda, I will never use them to book a hotel again.

Hi Xanthe - probably best to ask the hotel directly? Our room was marvellous but upstairs - don't know if there's a lift I'm afraid.
