Yes. Alongside room amenities (see above), the concierge can organise children’s programmes, and there are no restrictions on times when children (accompanied by an adult) may use the pool. An offering loudly trumpeted by the hotel is its ’Sunday Family Table’, a fixed price table-service lunch specifically targeted at families with children.
