Only when the original is beyond repair is it replaced with replicas that are as faithful to the actual as can be achieved.
On the rear end of the mansion is the kitchen area, called The Lounge, providing inhouse guest a free flow of snacks and drinks. There is various fruit juices as well as soft drinks and local snacks from yesteryear. The Lounge is comfortably spacious, allowing guests to relax and unwind.
