Other things to note
Be aware that our unique solidwood eco architecture has the effect of inducing instant relaxation, which if left unchecked will result in severe oversleeping and inability to become mobile in the mornings which can effect any big plans you may have had for your day. It therefore follows that only booking a 2 night stay could limit your experience of the area. :)
