This is a perfect place to relax. A good hotel for couples; no children. There is a great spa, only a little difficult that not all personnel speaks English. Food is excellent and served on the big terrace with a nice view. The room we booked had a small balcony, with a view to the neighbours. We were lucky we... More

The staff were exemplary and the breakfast outstanding. The top floor is given to the Spa which seemingly is brand new and quite beautiful. Both the Spa area and the... More

We had a wonderful 4 week trip through Europe that spanned across numerous countries including, Belgium, France and Italy. This was by far the best hotel we stayed in! The room was large, with living space, kitchen, separate bedroom and large bathroom. The first thing that struck me was how clean everything was, it was literally spotless. Add to that... More
