The hotel is situated on the edge of the town with beautiful view towards the surrounding mountains. Rooms are spacious, clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and at your service at all time. Breakfast was okay, nothing special.

I stayed at the Hotel from the 03 July to 08 July 2016. The Hotel has unbelievable views and the facilities were top notch. I was a bit disappointed with a slight problem of the fact that my voucher booked me for 6 nights and the Hotel somehow only booked me for one day. I cleared this on the first... More

After driving in circles to find the hotel and after asking three different people I eventually found the hotel by mistake. Don't know if there is any directional signage for this hotel but if there is, I certainly did not see it. Hotel is situated in an office park so not easy to find.

Booked a deluxe twin room very late online on the day of arrival but within few minutes we were allocated a room. Check-in was good.
