Hi. The fridge has a small in-built freezer at the top of the fridge. More suitable for packs of frozen vegetables etc. I would "estimate" the size to be 450 wide x 250 high x 350 deep. Regards.

Get the airport shuttle The folks who run the shuttle also manage the hotel. They are great people. Do not use a cab. They are expensive
