Not quite what we were expecting
welcoming hostess. Good views. Good breakfast. Room a bit run down. The photos of this B&B show the rooms in a much better condition than they really are.

8/10 Very good

Nice view, lovely pool and clean and appealing looking rooms. The hostess was kind but very energetic and eager to check up on you often. We felt a bit stressed by this and would have wished to be left on our selves. The breakfast was really nice and the location is good. Also a huge plus is that you get a parking spot at the hotel.

2/10 Poor

Quality of service
I didn't enjoy my stay at the lodge as the rules made my stay very uncomfortable.As I was not in the position to change them I had to stay only one day out of the seven days that I paid for without any refund. I wish all the lodge and hotels can make access on the rules and any other information before one can book(on line booking)so that one can make a decision being aware of everything.
