The lawn in the hotel was very nice and one could sit on the chair and enjoy the bright sunshine in the cold weather... More

The spacious rooms have a functioning fire place and wooden floor. The bathrooms were clean with western fittings and geyser. Room service met expectations. It was crazy... More
