*The capacities for the Grace Murrell Suite are based on the total of 4 inter-connecting rooms. Due to the Suite's partition walls the capacity can be reduced by selecting 1, 2 or 3 rooms.

**Capacity can be increased but this may result in either restricted view or more compact layout. Banqueting numbers are calculated based on tables of 10 people and cabaret on tables of 7, unless otherwise stated.
