2/5

Old, old, old- creaking floors, poor lightings and lots of spiders and gnats. Poor beds. Location was okay!

Stayed 2 nights in Sep 2019

5/5 Excellent

Very helpful and cheerful staff. Even though it was very hot they did their best to make sure you enjoyed your stay.

5/5 Excellent

This property was amazing. First, the service. Margrit went above and beyond in her friendliness and helpfulness. Kudos to her! She made our stay, from guiding our parking, to offering suggestions for outings; facilitating a new room when our first had issues, to inviting us to use reception to picnic. The hotel has been redone. Comfortable new beds. New flooring. And we were on the no-river side. The river bugs were not an issue! And unrolling the rouladens at night but leaving slats allowed fresh air. I highly recommend.
