The hotel is a bit rustic and need some attention, but the atmosphere, scenery and friendliness of staff makes up for any shortcomings. The hotel is set in a beautiful area with no houses or dwellings within 3-5 km. Don't expect gourmet food, but expect to gain a few kilo's, as the food was very good and plenty of it.

Perhaps a separate section for families with kids under a certain age could alleviate this.

The restaurant staff are a bit rough around the edges and we were unceremoniously asked to vacate our table halfway through our meal. We didn't see the tiny room names on the tables. They have a strange system of seating...
