Very nice hotel in nice surroundings, ideal for summer getaway. Staff are very nice. Food in the hotel is lobely I would highly recommend the steak or the burger! Rooms are nice and beds very comfortable, bathrooms are a bit dated. It is a good bit out from the town, in a taxi you'd be looking at €20 so steep... More

This is a great hotel in a spectacular and beautiful location, great even in winter. Rooms are clean and a good size, the beds are comfortable. Staff are really helpful and friendly, evening meal and breakfast were both excellent. Would recommend this hotel for a romantic mini break or simply for business.
