The hotel has nice big rooms and is good located within short distance to a lot of activities. They support good help to reach the different activities. The rooms are clean and nicely furnitured. The hotel are located down by the river. Each day we have seen different animals om the hotel park.

The only glitch sometimes is they don't understand English accents but that is sorted when spoken on one to one basis.
