Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Worth the drive
It is a very nice hotel, but the road to get there is difficult and there is no restaurant at the hotel, at least in winter, so you have to get out to eat. The staff is very nice and the breakfast is among the best.
