Facilities

For you to use and enjoy whilst at Wilson

Every bedroom comes with a bed, desk, wardrobe, cabinet, desk-chair, lamp, fan, laundry basket, telephone, wired internet connection (and decent though not perfect wifi coverage). En-suite rooms have a shower, mirror, sink and toilet wet room, where as standard rooms have a mirror and sink.

Standard Single beds in Wilson are 200 cm x 92 cm (6ft7 x 3ft). We'd suggest brining loose, non-fitted sheets just to be on the safe side.
