first of all, keep in mind that this is a hotel attached to a religious community, catering, i suppose, primarily to pilgrim-types. so. don't expect ANY frills.
there are twin beds in every room, so honeymooners (like us) be forwarned!
the town *completely* shuts down at 6pm. so if you want to eat or drink later than that, bring your own picnic or buy food and bottle of wine (which were cheap and delicious) ahead of time at the little market! we had a room facing the view, which was absolutely magnificent. however, once again, be forwarned, the bells ring *EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES ALL NIGHT LONG* so bring ear plugs. we had read the reviews and knew about this issue, so we brought some and it was fine. but it really is a must!
the hiking trails are super awesome and afford incredible views over the countryside. take advantage of it!
breakfast was fine. nothing impressive.
also, when we were there, the boys' choir was on holiday, which i was disappointed about, since it did not say that anywhere online. but, it gave us more time for hiking, which was what we had actually come to do anyway!
all in all, it's a totally fine place to stay. very clean, and does the job.
