Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was super, large, modern, with a (quiet) refrigerator and flat screen TV met vele zenders, lovely view from the balcony, and really good WIFI! The owners and personnel were very friendly and the good breakfast was served in a lovely room with view (with good weather outside). There was just nothing not to like here!

Breakfast was filling and...
