          Hi Traveldeon We certainly are not satisfied with the smoke that has recently been experienced in the lounge. We are working to fix it urgently. Thank you for taking the time to ask this.

          There is one block (a new one) that has inter-leading rooms. It's the 300's block if you ask while you're doing your reservation. My favourite rooms in the hotel

          If you are this gormless you are probably better staying at home. Have a look at some weather forecasts and google maps online.
