          Nice good sized rooms, perfect walking distance to all sites. Easy access to train station using another exit. Restaurant service and quality of food needs improving but for the rest we had a lovely stay.

          We will be there in a couple weeks. I have a few questions: 1. Do the rooms have a mini refrigerator? 2. Is there a complimentary coffee station for guests 24/7? If not are there coffeemakers in the rooms? If so- what kind of coffee makers? Thank you
