    Positive: really nice stuff, they offer free pick ups and drop offs and are very helpful. I liked the bed linen and the nice atmosphere. (Free Bikes) Negative: The location is far away from the town centre (we walked 45min with our baggage) but they offer a pick up if you call! Poor facilities only one shower and one toilet for all people (waiting time) :( Free bikes, but they are the worst bikes we ever rode. We stayed one night and it was fine, but they could improve their facilites!
