does hotel provide babycot?
Hello. I’d contact the hotel to be absolutely certain. Staff incredibly helpful and attentive. Whilst I don’t know the answer for sure I’d be very surprised if they didn’t. Enjoy!

does this hotel provide free breakfast with terrace view room
Hi, They usually have a buffet for the breakfast in their dining area, which is a closed one. But you can have your breakfast in the pool area. You have to book the hotel with breakfast for that. Or you have the option of al-a-carte there.Suggested to Book a room with lake view on the top floor.
