If you want to rest and sleep,, before booking, ask first if there is a wedding in the hotel. The noise is unbeareable. They offered a bottle of wine to compensate... Incredible. Rest of the services are perfect

Hotel appears well maintained, room was new and clean, but not well soundproofed. Free parking. Ridiculously expensive breakfast, but a lot of food there, even if not enough fresh vegetables. You need a car, and there is nothing around.

The room was nice and quite large. Thw wifi was great. The staff was extremely helpful and serviceminded. Hadn't it been for these three things I would have rated this as one star. The walls must be paperwalls, in fact we could just as well have been sleeping in a big dorm. This second night we're sitting here and we... More

Lovely hotel, beautiful bedrooms / bathrooms. Pleasant bar areas, and nice food. Pity there was no night-time entertainment as it is a drive or taxi ride into town, some live/traditional music would have made our 3 night stay absolutely perfect.

We recently stayed in this hotel for the first time. We were met by a very friendly receptionist on check in. The room was really very well laid out with very modern decor. We went for dinner and were very impressed with the quality of the food presented to us. The lady who worked in the bar/dining area was very... More
