Sehr freundliches und hilfsbereites Rezeptionspersonal, die Zimmer sind sehr ruhig und sauber, besonders angenehm: die weichen Kopfkissen. Beim Frühstück fehlt nichts! - Alles ist bis zuletzt da, die Tische werden nach Benutzung sofort abgeräumt und gereinigt und auch hier ist das Personal höflich und hilfsbereit.
