Nice stay :-) We both enjoyed ourselves! Doggie especially loved the local sausage from breakfast table. Providing reading glasses in the restaurant alongside with newspapers would be nice. Unscented lotions & soaps would nice to be available in all rooms. Shall come again - soon!

Service and room was very good, but hotel parking space totaly too small. In the future, it would be more tahn very important to rebuild more space to your garage. Location for your hotel was nice, but some noice from neightbor construction plant.

Everything worked fine and the breakfast was just amazing; it was more like a brunch. Unfortunately the hotel room is a bit overpriced in my opinion but the place itself is great otherwise. Location and facilities are really good.
