10/10 Exceptional

Great location
Really convenient for the coastal path and easy access to town. The room was very comfortable and great views. The breakfast was excellent and Monica was a very helpful and informative host.

8/10 Very good

Gut gelegene Unterkunft. Parkplätze genügend vorhanden. Das Frühstückskonzept (man muss sich abends zuvor entscheiden, was man essen will / ohne zu wissen wie groß die Portionen sind) sollte geändert werden. Auch die Reihenfolge wird einem durch das servieren vorgegeben. Beispiel: Kaffee oder Müsli kommt zuerst, Milch viel später. Oder man bestellt Käse und bekommt einen ganzen Camembert.
