Absolutely outstanding... Memorable experience. Welcoming and comfortable environment. Probably the best tasting food, served by well mannered and soft spoken staff. Costumers satisfaction is their top priority.

But the wi-fi is very modern, the shower works, and your dinner and breakfast are delicious. The boat is huge, and if you rent 2 rooms, you have all of it for your goup. The... More
