All rooms can accommodate up to 2 guests per room. Two of the rooms are designated as pet friendly rooms and 2 bedrooms facing the verandah are designated smoking rooms. All other rooms are strictly non-smoking rooms. Free Wi-Fi is available to guests.

The dining room serves a full breakfast every morning and the meal of the day is served every night. The hotel also presents a small a-la-carte menu offering steaks, burgers, pies, pasta dishes, light meals and vegetarian dishes.
