We had the hotel to ourselves plus only one other guest, but this did not lower the standard of service. The staff were friendly and there when you wanted them. The rooms were spacious, clean and had a nice bathroom with an excellent shower. The food was very good, but the menu was limited because there were only three guests.... More

Before it was much more worn on the edges (rust on bathroom, willing but inexperienced staff,... More
