          Apologies for the late reply, it is very rare that we get messages through Tripadvisor. If it is not too late: HB includes breakfast and dinner (not drinks). Kind regards.

          Hello and apologies for the late reply. We have free internet (wi-fi) in most of the rooms. Speed depends a lot on the provider I am afraid, which is not great, and varies during the day. Kind regards.
