We have a few delux studio and one bedroom units that are not facing the road and with our new wall the noise has been dramatically reduced. Our kitchenette in the rooms are not set up for doing any degree of large cooking. Any seafood or strong smelling food including spices are not permitted in our units and extra charges will apply if found on departure.
