Hotel is beautifully located in the centre of town. Room (in their new second building) was efficient and clean. Bed and bathroom were actually great and among the best I've had this trip. So why only 3 stars? Two reasons:
1) Breakfast was really too minimal. This is not a cheap hotel, so a little bit more variation in cheeses/meats/liver pate/dairy and perhaps some warm eggs and/or a local specialty would really be appreciated. In fact the choice was so limited that often items were all taken immediately after being served on the central table, so everyone had to keep an eye open to get something of their likings. Many people take hikes or do other outdoor activities so most of them need a good solid basis to start the day. (-1 star)
2) There's free wifi but it's hopelessly poor (I even tried switching rooms to get a better signal, but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked on my second day here). Downstairs the signal is OK and I saw that there's a tiny wifi router behind the counter there. On the 2nd and 3rd floors the signal almost completely disappears. My guess is that the tiny wifi router downstairs is the only one in the building (?!). My suggestion: buy 3 professional wifi routers (nowadays these are quite affordable) with strong signals and put one on every floor. And please configure them such that they don't all transmit on channel 6, but e.g. one on channel 1, one on channel 6 and one on channel 12 (you can use the same SSID to get a smooth handover). (-1 star)
So all in all 3 stars overall and only 2 stars for service. If these items are fixed my rating would easily become 4 stars or higher.
