Despite the very special timing of my stay due to the corona virus I enjoyed the location and the friendliness of the staff. They have been very helpful with finding places where there was a take away for supper and breakfast.

The staff is so friendly and helpful and full of information. You can not find this anywhere else. Incredible. The best part of the stay was the wonderful bed. The mattress is incredible. You just sink into it and you never want to leave. The restraunt serves a great buffet with fresh made omelets.
