          Hi , I was wondering whether you have lockers and if so are they large enough to store a laptop? Thank you!

          Response from James A | Reviewed this property |
          Yes, there are lockers. They are large enough to store a small suitcase, so there is more than enough space to store a laptop. Just be aware that on my visit, many people were having trouble connecting to the internet.
