We arrived to a friendly greeting, a welcome drink and Creten music being played live by the receptionist brother and friends! Plenty of parking... clean, quiet, restaurant open long hours and great breakfast included! Highly recommend!

Hi no free shuttle service from this hotel but it’s so easy to go down the road and get the airport bus it’s very cheap or you can walk from the hotel. Will take you about 20 minutes.
