The place is in a quite suburb, easy to find. It is a beautiful place with beautiful rooms. Well maintained. Welcomed by the owner who have a good sense of humor. Restaurant very beautiful although it does not have much breakfast options.

The place was dirty. There were 2 dogs running around the yard and barking. The staff walked past my door several times, talking at the top of their voices. There was hammering and drilling for several hours during the afternoon. It was an unpleasant stay!
