value for money?

Reception n restaurant stff very helpful, concierge n shuttlebus driver can be more client friendly. Had a prepaid room but could get drinks at the bar only by cash money. Value of a customer means money in the pocket when you book a room prepaid? Silly policy...

A good holiday

Het hotel was goed gelegen en de kamers netjes. Een extra pluim voor het vriendelijk personeel. 1 kleine opmerking, iets te veel schreeuwende kinderen maar dat ligt meer aan de ouders dan aan het hotel. Ook het restaurant is een aanrader.
