    they have a free shuttle service from the ferry terminal, sooooo friendly and family style staff member. They also have better WIFI than your own at home but only in the lobby, that's no problem though because it's so good that you even have wifi in surrounded rooms. The lobby got nice seating possibility. The kitchen and laundry are always clean and tidy. I don't know ho they do it but it is awesome. The same with the rooms -> very comfortable beds and fridges in some rooms :D all in one a #1
