well appointed and clean small hotel, approx 800m above sea level, very long winding road up but well worth the stunning views. Staff are English speaking , polite and attentive, the restaurant is good offering ala carte and pizzeria , breakfast also was continental and ok. Small room but ok for a one night stop over.

Smaller family-run hotel, very clean and tastefully decorated. In the romantic atmosphere on the mountain pass. Very friendly staff and good home cooking. Surrounding of the hotel is friendly to children. Lots of parking.

Very friendly people, but if you can't sleep at night because your window is right above the hotel café, where people sit outside and talk (loudly) until well after midnight), and the room doesn't come with curtains to block out the street lights, then the whole experience is not very positive. If you do have to drive over a very... More
