Family & connecting rooms

For a family weekend break or short stay, a Superior King Twin room is ideal – it sleeps a family of four in comfort and offers all those thoughtful touches that make our hotel experience so special. These rooms are spacious enough to accommodate a king-sized bed, which can be made into two single beds, as well as two extra beds for children under 12 years old, plus an en-suite bathroom.

We offer two pairs of interconnecting Superior King Twin Rooms, ideal for families with teenagers or for larger families. This gives you a variety of flexible options that allows you to include additional family members.

Dining options

Children under 12 years dine for free when ordering from the children's menu and dining with a paying adult. Our team understands that eating in a restaurant with children can sometimes be a challenge so we're also happy to provide adapted seating and special cutlery so that everyone can relax and enjoy their dining experience.

Executive Chef Helder has created a special Duke and Duchess Afternoon Tea for our younger guests which includes some of their most popular treats. They can also enjoy cupcake decorating, a complimentary activity for families where children can decorate their own cupcake with one of our chefs and receive a certificate in cupcake decorating to take home.
