A lovely hotel in a fantastic location in the mountains. A real get away from it all place. The rooms are simple and comfortable, the staff very responsive and hard working. The food was very good, generous portions and good value. The garden was beautifully kept and there were several different lawned and terraced areas to take a coffee or a glass of wine. There is a fun little private spa area with hot tub, sauna and outdoor shower which you book by the hour, lovely after a days walking. We walked both days of our stay and enjoyed fantastic views. The hotel was full for most of our stay with two large groups and several smaller groups/ couples and the staff took this in their stride for all three daily meal sittings. We asked to change our bolsters for pillows after dinner on a busy night and the waitress Clara came with us immediately to do this despite being in the middle of dinner service. All the staff spoke good English. Highly recommend this charming hotel.
