  • 3 double occupancy rooms reserved for a reduced cost of $249/night
  • 2 suites that can host 3-5 participants each, each one at a reduced cost of $349

Each suite has private access, kitchen, and dining area, where several rooms possess either a king bed, 2 twin beds or a queen sofa bed. The accommodation in these suites could be great for a family or colleagues who want to share a common space or work together, where each room is closed for privacy. The number of participants in each suite will depend on the occupants, and extra single beds can be added on request.

Breakfast is included for all rooms, plus complimentary afternoon cheese and wine tasting. All these (1-3) are on hold for our group until October 25, the date when the rooms will be released back to the public.
