Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I'd certainly stay at this hotel again. Their swiming pool and changing rooms are excellent! The staff are very friendly and competent. My room was extremely well cleaned with aparently new bed sheets, pillows and towels. For those who mind about decoration, the hotel may look a little old-fashioned and needing some renovation here and there, but in my opinion all the rest compensate this detail. I stayed there with my family during this pandemic restrictions time, and I could notice the hotel was well prepared to follw the cleaning recommendation and social distancing. We had to book time for the swiming, which in the end was good as there were not many people at the same time and we could enjoy the jacuzzi as well.
