Nice family run hotel which is a charming change from the chain hotels you find in the big cities. The rooms are big and an updated bathroom makes it a nice stay. The floors are a bit creaky but this adds to the charm. The hosts were wonderful and helped plan each of the five days we stayed including checking...
