Hotel was clean, breakfast was good. Pool and sauna were also clean and well maintained. The internet situation is a disaster - and the staff seemed to know it. Overall pleasant stay in walking distance to the town.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel, our room was a cosy room, it was quite small but this didn't make it unpleasant as the hotel was very clean and in a great location. The hotel was in walking distance to everything but the hill upto the hotel is really steep, we didn't find it much of a problem until... More

Our room was on the top floor and was very clean and comfortable. The bed was huge and we even had a jacuzzi bath. Both evening meal and breakfast were delicious,... More
