Positive Reviews

Absolutely perfect apartments

All visitors are highly impressed with this resort, especially the apartments. The highlight, of course, is the private mineral-water hot tub, which guests always take advantage of to the fullest. In addition, travellers highly appreciate having a well-equipped kitchen and on-site, self-serve laundry facilities.

Gorgeous garden

The rose garden instantly makes an impression on guests. According to reviews, the resort does a great job creating a very inviting outdoor space which guests love to spend time in. Travellers especially enjoy the outdoor furniture, BBQs and trampoline.

Warm welcome

Guests always feel welcome at this resort. The hosts are incredibly kind and truly make an effort to create a home-like feel for every person. Travellers highly appreciate the welcome drink and find it refreshing after long travels.

Negative Reviews

Some car noise

According to reviews, the hotel is set near two busy roads. While not all apartments have issues, some are located close enough to the roads to pick up minor traffic noise.

Stairs throughout

Guests warn that most units require climbing stairs to be accessed. Travellers with mobility issues find it a bit difficult. However, according to reviews, the studio apartments do not have this problem.

Dated decor

While guests find the apartments well-maintained, many think the decor and furnishings are a bit dated. The resort could use a minor cosmetic update.
