Located in an integrated lobby and food and beverage experience, is a new Express Café & Bar an inviting ‘pit-stop’ for guests offering what is termed “simple, honest food done well”.

With the accommodation the ‘Next Generation’ guest room has been designed to balance home comforts with smart design features.  Features include Smart TVs and there is a larger, cosier, bed with a padded, noise-reducing headboard providing back support for working or watching television in bed.
