Carina, German

The cleanliness of the shower and the room was average, not too good. There are no sockets in the room or in the bathroom. The staff were not helpful. We needed a taxi into the city serveral times because we were not properly informed about the shuttle service or it was not available.

Colin Gibson, British

It's a brilliant place to stay especially if you’re with friends like I was, the surrounding areas are just amazing and the 24hour access was good as we were always popping out for strolls. Highly recommended and would definitely go again thanks for a great time.
