    Comfortable hotel and enjoyed the breakfast. Reception was very helpful and assisted with internet service. Well located in the middle of the town. I would certainly use the hotel for future stays. There where a lot more facilities available that we did not use.

    This gem of a place goes out of it's way to make one feel welcome and at home. Although one of my companions fell sick, the staff did all they could in order to make us feel at home. Killer breakfast as well.
