    What a view, it really is great to wake up to that. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool a great place for an afternoon dip. The bed was comfortable. BUT A little bit of update and care of the rooms would be wonderful....More

    The view is just amazing. And still so close to the Ella center with its great atmosphere. Personnel is also very friendly, and the manager has great advice and can arrange trips or drivers for a good price. Absolute recommendation!
