Rooms while older were large, clean and perfectly adequate. A lovely fresh hot water pool and a couple mineral pools as well ...... Couldn't have asked for... More

Planned on staying longer but other things from this world cut everything short. If we had of stayed longer I'm sure that everything would have been excellent. Look forward to the next time that we can stay that extra time.

The location was perfect too, close enough to town but far away enough to not... More
