A nice relaxing break

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights. We enjoyed the stay but we're disappointed to have to pay €15 each for use of the thermal suites. We thought it should be included for hotel guests. Other then that no complaints.

Hyvä vaihtoehto

Hyvätasoinen hotelli pienessä kaupungissa. Runsas ja hyvä aamiainen. Huoneiden koko vaihtelee. Sijainti kaupungin laidalla, mutta jos olet autolla, hyvien yhteyksien varrella. Ystävällinen henkilökunta.
