I'm still at the hotel as I write this review. Glorious landscapes, good equipment, very, very nice staff. Room is standard - nothing to complain about. Breakfast was good. Sauna and steam bath could be easier to find (it on the minus 1 floor, after a room corridor, so not really easy to find), and could be a bit hotter.... More

We spent 1 night at the hotel. Arrived in the afternoon and enjoyed the nice pool and bar facility. The dinner was buffet-style, ok but nothing special. Breakfast was ample and good. Very friendly staff. We were in room 001 which was big, clean and comfortable for a family with 1 child. However no view and a very tiny bathroom.... More

This hotel is worth the price, if only for the splendid pool and cheerful rooms. We had good sandwiches ariu d the pool and a terrific breakfast on the veranda. The town offers nothing except for the thermal baths. These were overpriced and not as advertised in terms of the claimed benefits of the waters. There are better thermal baths... More

Enjoyed our one night stay as part of an organised tour. Would have liked to stay longer to enjoy the pool and gardens. Lovely modern hotel with pleasant art work and sculptures. Limited staff due to a downturn in tourism generally in the area. Don't let this discourage you from staying. Plenty of parking for bicycles, cars and motorbikes. Lovely... More

This hotel has lovely facilities - the pool and gardens, the hotel itself, public areas and the staff are very friendly and helpful - but you don't go here for the food. It is extraordinary that a hotel of this calibre doesn't offer an a la carte menu. For lunch and dinner they have a buffet, which might be OK... More
