This is a lovely hotel, beautifully set out, staff friendly, rooms good and bathrooms excellent. However it was let down by the lackadaisical attitude to cleaning. Glasses were not cleaned and replaced, floors not well hoovered which was a bit of a disappointment.

Everything is settled in this hotel, the friendly staff is a good mix of different languages, everything is clean , the atmosphere is relaxed, and the rooms are spacious. There's a nespresso machine on the room and a mini bar. The shower is good and there a plenty of towels, which you can also use in the gym or sauna....
