    Some of the premium rooms did have. Most had built in DVD's. The hotel is so beautiful, you will not want to watch any DVD's. The hotel manager is extremely helpful and I am sure if you email the hotel, they will confirm.

    Yes the hotel is very big. For a person with mobility issues it would be advisable to pick the rooms on ground floor.
