The main selling point of this hotel is the ideal location. With beautiful views of the mountains from the pool area, and at the quiet end of the main street, you couldn't get a better location.
The rooms are a good size but could do with a thorough clean, especially the bathrooms. The beds were large and comfortable with everything you need for a 3 night stay.
The staff were friendly enough, but there is not many of them, and they all seem to do everything. Our rooms were not ready when we arrived, even though it was after our allocated check in time, but we were able to leave our luggage in reception and head out for a walk on the advice of the receptionist.
Breakfast was the main downside of the hotel. The choice was limited for a buffett, and they were very slow to refill things that had run out. Having to ask for coffee 5 times is not what I would expect from a hotel like this.
The town is beautiful and well worth a visit, and if you are looking for an ideal location to sleep in, and are going to spend most of your time exploring then I would recommend this hotel.
