We stayed at Tomtom for 5 nights and spent there the New Year dinner.
Reviewing the reports here I actually expected more from the Hotel. Actually it's very nice, small, clean, rooms very well furnished.
Unfortunately I got the last available room, 21, and it's not supposed to be the possible best there. Very noisy: a diesel electricity generator was running during the day till 11pm just under the window. I made notice that to thereceptionist that even didn't know of the existance of the generator! So, it continued for the whole stay.
Moreover, I originally boked for 6 nights. During the stay we decided to leave earlier to hav a trip in the south. I asked the possibility to make it without being charged for the missing last night. They took 2 days for providing me with a feedback (it was not possible to get in tough with the manager). Then they told me that the night would have been charged. I asked to talk to the manager to complain about it. It was not possible to contact the manager, but after a short discussion among receptionist, at the end, they accepted not to charge the last night...
So, bottom line, hotel is OK, rooms are OK, don't go to the rooms with windows on the inner yard.
