This hotel is excellence to rest but also active holidays. You have the forest very close with wonderful walking paths. The spa area and gym are also great. The gym is even open 24h. The rooms are extremely spacious and very clean. Was not expecting to have two bathrooms. Feels like staying in a 1 bedroom apartment but with the comfort of a 5* hotel. As the hotel is so spacious, the guests don’t need to pilling on top of each other. Thank you for being so welcoming! Can’t wait to be back.

This hotel is Superb! The staff were so friendly and kind to me when I needed help and the rooms are beautiful. The negative reviews of not having facilities for children confuse me as this hotel is clearly very much a spa resort, an escape for adults to enjoy some relaxation, peace and quiet - I’m not really sure why people would think to take children here. All in all! A perfect getaway for Adults!
