We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The room was clean, neat and tidy and generally the setting was beautiful. The breakfast was also great. The only thing that was not so cool was the signal of the TV that was very bad, the screen was very snowy all the time. But other than that all was really very enjoyable.
