Warm welcome
We’re personally welcomed and immediately escorted to our room. Room was modern and had a large balcony. Service was great! Food was good. No elevator and a maze of corridors and stairs to get to your room. Recommend this hotel and would stay here again

Prima ruim hotel.
Prachtig hotel, goed gelegen in midden van het eiland. Mooie ruime kamers, met 2 relax stoelen. Gezellig en comfortabel, zelfs een balkon. Ontbijt goed, maar wel elke dag hetzelfde. Uitstekende fietsen te huur.

prima kamer en service, zeker in deze corona tijd. Enige opmerking is dat de kraan in de badkamer met een bewegingssensor uitgerust was. Dit is voor normaal gebruik absoluut onpractisch.

Heel prettig hotel met goede atmosfeer, rustig gelegen. Aardig personeel, mooie kamers. Alleen bedden, beddengoed en handdoeken niet van heel goede kwaliteit. jammer. Maar al met al zeker een aan te raden hotel.

Hoewel de kamer erg mooi en nieuw was....ontbraken er paar dingen, nl: Geen Kluisje....Geen minibar ( wilde graag n flesje water voor snachts, maar dit was helaas niet mogelijk) Geen grote spiegel ( alleen n kleine spiegel in de badkamer)
