If you're travelling from the UK or Ireland you don't need to bring any adapters for plugging in Iphones. There is a hairdryer provided.

There is a parking lot with handicapped parking next door but it is separate, you would need to pay more for this parking.

I found the junior suite spacious. There was a good sized bathroom with separate shower and bath. There was a sitting/lounge area with sofa and arm chair. A very large bed also. I would recommend.
