Our conference rooms are located on the ground floor right by the level entrance from the car park.  All bedrooms are accessible including those on the first floor, which are accessed by a lift.

Yes, as residents of the hotel, use of their leisure club (including the gym and swimming pool) is included.

Do I have to attend workshops?

We hope you will want to attend the workshops which we have chosen with care, but if you wish to just relax in the hotel or its grounds, you are free to do so.
