Nice location. rooms facing the pine forests and the hotel is on a high place. Rooms are spacious which can easily accommodate 3 pax and good balcony. Childrens play area also there. Food in restaurant is nice and reasonable as well. Didnt have any complaints. stayed there for 1 night. wifi is only available in the reception lobby.
