          Hi Jessica, walking is no problem. For me it's usually nice to het in touch with the new place. It takes abouth 15 minutes. If you don't want to walk, grab a Taxi. They are in front of the airport.
          DO you serve a full breakfast with eggs sausages and bacon? Are pets allowed to run free in the hotel? I do not like dogs and cats?
