Very professionally run, great attention to detail, Dirk and Patrick and their team really make sure that you are looked after. We used the mobile phone that the Cube loans to call taxis and it was very useful and a good idea.

“The Hotel has - as stated on their webpage - 5 rooms different in size, view and price. We stayed in the Corner Suite which - after having given the chance to look at the others as well - proved to be our preferred room especially due to the breathtaking view to the bay and the surrounding mountains.”
