We don´t offer a special option for people with problems with gluten, but our breakfast include fruits like bananas, orange, grapefruit... vegetables like peppers and cucumber and also cold meat like salami ham and cheese of course, also you can eat boiled eggs and oat meal. I think you have some options to avoid the gluten. See you soon.

Dear guest, unfortunately at present we do not have evening meals but we will have in the beginning of 2019 as we are in the process of building a restaurant next to the hotel.

"if mobility not an issue then higher up the better the view -possibly stating the obvious!"
"Rooms at the back were quieter but didn't have the view of the church"
"Rooms facing the church would be nicer."
"Rooms at the back should be quieter."
