What does the Smart TV do?
Our Smart TV gives you internet access, apps, games, catch-up TV and a selection of free films alongside all the regular TV channels. If you’ve missed a must-see movie at the cinema, chances are you can catch it on this 40" Smart TV instead. If you’re heading out and about, the Explore section on our Smart TV has a handy guide to the local area, including our favourite spots to visit and the best sights to see nearby.
Can I watch my own stuff on the TV?
Yes, you can connect your device to the TV to watch your own photos, movies, videos and TV shows. All our hotels have Wi-Fi mirroring so you don’t need any wires - just follow these instructions.

2. Select ‘Connect device’ on the TV, and choose either the Airplay (iOS / Apple devices) or Mirrorcast (Android)
3. Select the same Airplay or Mirrorcast on your device
a. For iPhone – a 4 digit code then appears on the TV, which you enter on your device
b. For android – select ‘Samsung TV’ on your device
4. The screen from your device will then be mirrored on the TV screen. Simply control what you play from your phone as normal.
5. To exit, and watch normal TV again, either turn off (iOS) or disconnect (Android) mirroring on your phone or tablet.
