Admittedly this blog is written with a degree of prejudice because we’ve dined on the Tram Restaurant 3 times now and are already planning our 4th experience. Just putting it out there!

So that all guests are able to keep their rooms and bathrooms clean during the level 4 lockdown, we made the decision to supply toilet cleaner, kitchen/bathroom spray and a sponge for the bathroom.
