It’s basic but has everything you need. Main plus points it’s clean comfy and quiet. The breakfast is simple but good again nothing to complain about. I’d not hesitate to stay here again with my aged parents!

Kisamatka

Vastaanoton henkilökunta oli erittäin avuliaita. Aamiaistarjoilu oli myöhässä perjantaina ja lauantaina, henkilökunta nautti työaikanaan mielummin omaa aamiaistaan keittiössä kuin toi aamupala aineita tarjolle. Käytävissä oli hajustimia, jotka olivat todella vastenmielisen tuoksuisia.
