Our first visit, this hotel is a gem. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and Ivan who runs the hotel was brilliant; cannot speak more highly in this regard.
The food is excellent and the rooms very comfortable with all amenitiesprovided. The quality is greater than expected, well managed, but yet very informal. We loved it, and would recommend this hotel to everyone.
