Great breakfast. Very friendly staff. There’s a hot tub to enjoy with a sauna. The room needs more ventilation during summer. Might be abit warm during sleep. Maybe a ceiling fan or something might help.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Modem well furnished studio
The double room with balcony was in very good condition, clean and gave the impression of being recently refurbished. The room was a studio with the bed, seating and kitchen all in one room and then en-suite bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped but it was a little odd not to have a table of dining height to eat on. Instead we sat on the floor using the coffee table (there was a sofa just not the right height for the table). Bed very comfortable. Water in shower hot. Room nice temperature. We could park directly outside to unload but then had to park the car further away overnight (but all off street).
