We stayed for 2 two nights there and I can only say the place and the owner are great.
The small hotel lays hidden from the street in a spacious garden, with a small parking lot for a few cars, but as there are not so many rooms either, this is not a problem.
The overall atmosphere was really more like it was a home for you and not an anonymous hotel for large masses. We were greeted by the owner himself, he was helpful with information about where to eat (anyway just a handful of options in the small town) and he gave us map with hiking routes as well.
Regarding our room - it was very nice, big, clean and overall a great place to relax after a long day outside. In a rather hot summer day the tile floors seemed more as an advantage opposite the complaints in other reviews. There was an large carpet as well, guess as an response to this complaint, if someone gets too cold feet :D Free WiFi was also available, quality although average (at least with a smartphone, tabled worked better, but then again, go out and stop browsing, you are on a vacation for gods sake).
As for noise levels, it was very quiet, except the church bell, that rang every hour even during the night, but this, I believe, can be heard in the whole town and even the surroundings. In the second night, after a 20+ km hike, this was not a problem anyway :D
And of top of all - I had some issues whit my cars brakes on the way to the hotel, so I asked the owner, if he could recommend an garage in town to fix the problem, and after a while on the phone (one garage busy, one too far) we ended up at his home and fixing it by ourselves, to get me moving again. Thank you, Giels again for this :)
So if you like a very personal approach and a cosy atmosphere in a very nice town, I would highly recommend this place to you, and I would definitely choose it again, If I go to this area.
