Excellent service and excellent place to stay. The food was spectacular. The room that I stayed in was well kept and furnished according to my needs. Although the area is cold my room was fitted with everything needed to make my stay comfortable.

The room was spotlessly clean and tidy, yet cosy and warm. The amenities were perfect and the location was so convenient for the business we were doing. Our host was friendly and helpful, We'll definitely be back!
