Breakfast was great with quite a variety of an offering. Dinner was also good with attentive staff. Wi-Fi- bonus of 2Gb if you are a rewards member. Very comfortable stay with regard to bedding. Promenade outside is ideal if you are a sport enthusiast. Relatively safe even into the evening. Overall good value for money.
