6/10 Good

This is not a hotel and so Expedia should be more clear about that and not have it show up in a hotel search. This is more like a cabin rental where you rent a room in a house with shared common areas. The house we were in is quite dated and both the facilities and the decor could use updating. The bathrooms were small with very old and rusty fixtures.

10/10 Exceptional

Cute spot with various facilities, including restaurant, farm sites and nice little shop. Nice room (w/ private bathroom) but also access to a communal living room with fireplace and kitchen. Unique and neat spot, would recommend

Rather strange experience, not a hotel but rooms
Reception telephoned us the day we were arriving to check our arrival time, I felt they stayed behind just for us. We took suitcases and dog out of the car only to be told our room was 1km away and to follow the receptionist in our car. The room was OK, we shared an apartment with another couple. All advertised facilities on site were closed except for the pool. We had to travel back to get something to eat, the food was not great, we're sorry to say. The place was typical, rustic and peaceful. The place clearly won many awards in the past and has the potential to be great once again but we were left with the impression that the current management do not seem to be doing it justice.

Average place, not so great service
Average place. Location is not great, but environment in the mountains was pleasant. However, when the hot water was not working in the morning they still didn't show flexibility with the checkout time. The first contact by phone before the check in was not the best either. Overall, decent place, 12mins driving from the center which needs to improve the way they take care of costumers
