Spaces such as the Squadron Bar tell the hidden story of those who served, their bravery and what life in wartime was like. Other facilities include a restaurant, lounge, salon and gift shop. All bedrooms are en-suite and include a flatscreen TV, hairdryer, iron, telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. This hotel has a lift.
