Good location, good parking and good breakfast
Good location. The hotel is clean and bright. Breakfast is good and COVID procedures well managed and delivered. We booked a room with a balcony and lake view. This was in the roof and with hindsight we would have been better off with a normal room with a lake view. Bathrooms are very old but I understand that there are plans to upgrade them over the winter. Overall we enjoyed our stay but the hotel was a bit overpriced for the room we had.

Wonderful and clean hotel...cute room with balcony and lake view. Very convenient to all attractions. Bathroom was quite small and shower was tricky with step inside tiny tub/bath . Only hanging was an over the door hanger. Great breakfast and Elena was so very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay.
