I celebrated our marriage here because of Tripadvisor, so thank you. The hotel itself is a bit difficult to spot. From the outside it just looks like a big building. I rang the doorbell, and a big gate was opened for me to park. From the inside it was very pretty. Especially the lobby and breakfast area.
The room was very spacious, with an (authentic?) wooden floor. Much antique and a nice chandelier gave the room an exquisite feeling. The bathroom was modern, with a bath/jacuzzi. The jacuzzi made a lot of noise though, so we only used that for a short bit.
The service was very good. Because it's family-owned, there wasn't always anyone at the desk, but if you used the bell someone would appear. When we first arrived we received a nice map of the centre, and a list of recommendations of restaurants and shops. We only stayed for one night, but we both wished it could've been longer. It was a really nice experience.
