This is a nice hotel, nothing luxurious, but friendly and cosy. The room was very spacious, and had a nice view to the garden. There was a sauna, and a nice breakfast buffet. Staff was friendly. Good location.

You can choose between more simple rooms with shared sanitary premises or a spacious room with own shower and toilet like we did. It was in the main building. There is no air conditioning but you can have the window open as there is protection against mosquitos. Though what is missing is something to make the room a bit more darker for the night - now its so light during the summer that one could have problems to sleep. Staff is extremely friendly - beds and cleanliness top. Breakfast very tasty with a great variety of dishes. Price-Quality ratio excellent. We come again. Family owned place where the couple who is running the business is every day in daily service.

Spend a night in a simple room (2 beds, chair, table, windows big enough to let some air in) in the old annex building with charming interior. Toilet down the hall, shower in separate building. Very nice atmosphere, good breakfast buffet, very friendly staff.

We did stay for 2 nights before the hike in this hotel, it is nice small clean hotel and i guess family owned. Something to be considered before booking here: - Rooms are clean but not to good sound insulated, if neighbour snoring you might notice that. - There is no restaurant, only breakfast is served - Quite narrow menu for gluten free diet!!! - Shampoo & soap had a really weird / not pleasant smell! This is homelike hotel accommodation, but it is not cheap, actually i think it was quite expensive, compare to big chain hotels, but i guess the have their expenses! Staff was really nice.
