My wife and I stayed at the NLI recently. We really enjoyed it. The staff was fantastic, rooms were excellent...overall, a great stay. The NLI is next to a geo-power station which we thought would be distracting. But, it really wasn’t.

I didn't see any such service while staying there. However as the other contributors suggest, contact hotel direct as staff are very pleasant and keen to help if at all possible.
