          Hi Rusheen. You seemed to enjoyed your stay at The Closenberg Hotel. It looks a great vintage place to stay but it looks quite is isolated. Are there any resturants, bars shops within walking distance? I would appreciate any info about the area. Thanks

          Are all the rooms 'standard'? are rooms in different blocks?
