Nice and peaceful hotel, not far away from the city and still has its original charm. Welcoming reception and fireplaces on giving you a relaxed atmosphere. Food is also good. My only comment is breakfast could have a little more variety of fruit and healthy options. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.
