Great hotel
Welcoming staff, lovely evening meal in the restaurant and great selection at breakfast time.

8/10 Very good

This is an awkward review to write. Everything about the hotel is very good: service, rooms, price, cleanliness, access, etc. For my partner and I, though, the place lacks a certain charm. To both of us, it reminded us of very nice roadside motels across the U.S. If you like this style, it is absolutely a good choice.
