          We will be there in a couple weeks. I have a few questions: 1. Do the rooms have a mini refrigerator? 2. Is there a complimentary coffee station for guests 24/7? If not are there coffeemakers in the rooms? If so- what kind of coffee makers? Thank you

          As others have said the fridge is small but it's there and it works. Top ups for the tea etc are easily got from reception.
