Very friendly and helpful staff. Offered me free breakfast because the room I have booked had a water problem, so I got upgraded to another room and free breakfast, what a bargain for the price I paid. By the way the breakfast where delicious

Room was dirty, tv didn’t work proper, no hot water. No service at breakfast, paid for breakfast, but no one to serve or help us. No glasses for juice. Will never in my life stay there again! Defnitely not even close to 4stars😡😡

the photos on the internet gives a false impression of the place. Breakfast for what I saw, Iwould not pay the 85 per head, and only available if requested. Family flat, yes holds 5 but very very clustered, our luggage was kept in the kitchen! Place is noisy with staff talking loudly not to mention the gate opening/closing every couple of minutes! Will not recommend or return in the future.
