Wonderful and very romantic place with lots of history ! Highly recommended also for the possibility to take a canoe ride on the river into wilderness. Nice breakfast and great calm rooms with wooden balconies.

"Take a good book and enjoy !!"
"Ask for a rondavel, one preferably on the riverbed"
"All of them are bad, but the original riverside rooms are the better option"
"Not Rondaval No12 of at all possible - no privacy and very noisy in early morning and throughout the day."
