    It was the most enjoyable break! Great service, beautiful views, delicious food and an expetacular spa looking to the forest. It was very practical the location for mountain bike. We loved it and we hope we will have a happy return one day.

    Delicious food, relaxing spa with well-trained staff, walks/hikes for every fitness level, this is the place to relax and refresh. An all-round friendly vibe and activities in the famous "Cavern Bar" give the Cavern a cosy, familiar feeling.

    I'd say you'd need to hire a car and drive. Or call the resort and ask if they can arrange a transfer for you.
