This regards the restaurant of the hotel. We visited the place in the early afternoon, on a Saturday, when returning from a mountain hike. Took seats, examined the menu, and never managed to get served. We spent 30 minutes trying to get hold of one of the 3-4 surly waiters, some of them did not notice, some stared, then turned... More

You certainly pay for location and I'll tell you why. When I booked this hotel I was very excited to just get there and relax! When we arrived we were in love with the view! It is spectacular!

Well, first of all the hotel got a nice location, it's right beneath a small but beautiful lake, surrounded by mountains where you can hike or drive around with your bike. The hotel itself is obviously old, even though the main theme of it is being traditional, but it could use a renovation. The rooms are nice (we stayed at... More
