We attended a wedding and most of the rooms was booked out to my family. At the end of the weekend everybody agreed that Surval was excellent and that we would visit again. We will never forget our stay!

The room was extremely comfortable and the view something else. We just battled to get internet reception in the unity we were in. Maybe something you should look at? We enjoyed our stay tremendously and will be back!
