The staff were amazing, really went above and beyond. Hotel itself is comfortable and pretty. Clean bathrooms. However the location is a bit random - not really close to anything. It's a 10 min walk to the Main Street and anything else requires transport. Only real negative - if you arrive late at night, it's difficult to get into the... More
