The place is overpriced, not terribley well maintained, and the hostess is a ... unfriendly, short-tempered, unhelpful shrew who force feeds you unwanted hard sales pitch for her vitamin cult at every turn. It looks nice in photos but do'n't be deceived into thinking that the cosy living room pictured will be available for your use. The hostess and her boyfriend monopolized it the entire time we were there and we heard their TV programmes late into the night each night. Food was palatable but I really didn't appreciate the dirty look at breakfast when my wife politely declined taking the supplement pills the hostess put out for us. After my wife explained that she has allergies, the hostess said (in a pretty snitty tone) that her pills wouldn't bother anyone and tried to stare her down. What a nasty way to start a day. And there is no choice at breakfast. She cooks what SHE wants.
We hated this place and this horrid, rude, greedy woman. Stay far away from this one. Not much to recommend here. We paid too much for the room, didn't like the breakfast, and the wine and sweets offering were both stale. But the worst part is that woman. Stay anywhere else if you expect friendly service and a relaxed, comfortable environment or if you actually hope to watch TV in the evenings.
