Great place to stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Feb 2024
This was a great place to spend a couple of nights. A couple of miles outside the town on the main road it had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Room was really big and bright with a very comfortable bed, a table with 2 chairs and a couple of comfortable armchairs next to a fireplace. There is also a laundry on site which guests can use for a small fee. The place was managed by Franziska who did a wonderful job of managing the reception area and also was responsible for providing breakfast for the guests. She was very friendly and professional and happy to help with any queries.
Date of stay: February 2024
Room Tip: Only 2 washing machines which appear to be in constant use from late afternoon through to the...

Very quiet hotel with spectacular views of the night sky. The rooms were nice!

The hotel concierge was very polite and helpful! He even made us a map showing us some recommended hikes!

We really enjoyed our stay!

Where do I start….5 stars all round.

We originally booked to stay here in 2020 but COVID-19 scuppered that plan! This hotel honoured our booking and we have just visited in April 2023. Communication via email was excellent.

The rooms are well appointed, spacious and have good quality furniture. The spa bath is a nice touch too.

Louis provided an easy check-in process and was very knowledgeable and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our continental breakfast which was good quality too.

Yes the motel is a little more expensive than others and it is out of town but I would highly recommend and we would stay again.

Such a beautiful room and convenient location with fabulous grounds and views. Huge room with huge comfy bed, windows and bathroom , everything felt very new. Great staff always available to help and chat. Didn’t try breakfast . If we had stayed longer than two nights would have missed a wardrobe, just a coat stand for all your clothes. But kettle and fridge and glasses etc , dining table and chairs, easy chairs, fire and big TV . Delighted

Room tip: Limited hanging space in room for clothes.

Very beautiful,,modernized and excellent resort right outside the main town,,you will get a good breakfast but will have to go to town for lunch and dinner and will also have to hire a cab for that to and fro. Rest rooms are excellent and views are to die for,,

Hi Narinderb, thanks for the review. Most of the local restaurants have free courtesy pickup and drop off service.
There is also a shuttle service but no cabs. Great to hear that you enjoyed the rooms, bathrooms, and views.
Hope you can come back some day!

Nice enough hotel and glad we were lucky to have a view of the garden. Bit out of town and not really walkable. Breakfast was very basic and not much of it. All in all overpriced for what it was. Very clean though.
