My sons and I prebooked our evening meal and breakfast so we didn't need a fridge,however there is a communal kitchen for those who wish to self cater. My sons brought their own hair dryer but I don't think the shower room had them any way. There wasn't any wi-fi which unbelievably didn't bother my sons. It was just nice to get back to basics and do a little bonding. Hope this helps!
