    Lovely surroundings but the rooms smell damp and are in need of a revamp. Food is good, not the best around but not the worst. Staff are friendly but a little slow and tend to disappear during busy periods .

    Just as has been said, generally there no big difference. You are better of asking the hotel to pick you up it is part of what they offer. Enjoy your stay.

    I was able to use it for a 8000 entry fee and then 10000 fee for the wifi code. So yes, but not for free.
