Is this a nonsmoking hotel? Thank you.
There's a courtyard in the centre of the hotel where guests are free to smoke. I didn't see anybody smoking inside the hotel and I seem to remember a sign in the hired rooms (bedroom and attached sitting room) asking visitors not to smoke there.

Will you be able to provide a room with 2 cots for our twin boys?
You definitely couldn't get two cots in the room we were in. There was hardly enough room for us to walk round the bed. Obviously I can't answer for any other room so I would suggest you check directly with the hotel.
