We ( family of 4, two teenagers) were here for 2 days as part of a group of 90 odd people. We were given two rooms, the teenagers had a slightly smaller room. Rooms are decorated in a very old fashioned manner, which we really liked ( the hotel is currently celebrating its 100th year ). Very clean and spacious rooms.
There is only one lift in the hotel ( at least we saw only one for guests), so imagine 90 people waiting in line to take their luggage up !
We had 2 breakfasts, one lunch and one dinner here. The food is entirely continental. The menu for breakfast on both days was the same. As we were a large group, we were served buffet meals. Those not fond of continental food might have problems.
The hotel is situated on top of a hill, with a very steep winding road. The path itself is beautiful, trees on both sides.There are steps cut into the hillside as a shortcut. This makes the hotel rather difficult to reach, or even travel to and fro from here. The hotel does have a shuttle service, but it needs to be prebooked and is in demand. It is a little away from the city centre. But the entire property is very beautiful and enchanting. There is a tennis court and enough space for kids to play.
The old world charm of the hotel and property is wonderful .
