Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff was super friendly, centrally located for the golden circle, clean simple rooms, shower with great water pressure, and the dinner we had there was fantastic (but it's only on weekends during the off season). Perfect for our trip going to places around the golden circle area.
