Absolutely wonderful stay, fantastic room and stunning view despite the weather limiting visibility. Only one night but would definitely return (to experience the thermal pool as we didn't have swimwear). Felt very welcomed and everything was explained (access, facilities, etc.) Highly recommend, thank you!More
