Disabilities and Special Needs
We welcome everyone and are committed to providing an excellent quality of service to all our guests and visitors. We have an active inclusion policy for guests with disabilities and are constantly striving to improve our facilities. Currently we are in the process of adding facilities for visually impaired people. Unfortunately due to its age and structure, our property does not have a lift and is therefore unsuitable for wheelchair users and those who have difficulty with stairs.
