    Spacious one bedroom suite. Very clean. Very comfortable. But don't invite too many people over for dinner. Very limited provisions for cooking and serving...

    Pros: The rooms are well maintained and clean. Breakfast options were nice too. Con: I couldn't figure out how to keep the whole room warm enough. I had to leave the portable heater (provided in the room) on and beside the bed when I went to sleep(guess this might be a "winter" issue). Overall: A decent experience.

    We were allowed to check-in early, my request for adjacent rooms was granted, the breakfast selection was huge, all staff were super friendly, and we were allowed to leave the car parked for a few extra hours after check-out in order to go skating. I would definitely book here again. Walking distance to the major sights.
