    It's a nice place and convenient location. Check in was friendly and efficient. The staff were very knowledgeable on what to do around the area. Everything is close by so with a short walk around you'll find something to do.

    Hi Ronald, Thanks for the positive review and for stopping the night with us. You are quite right, Franz is small and a short walk does take you right around the village. Cheers Adam

    Like many other guests we took our own. With supermarkets close by we were never short of any fresh produce. Alternatively there are many facilities within a stones throw that serve breakfast if you require cooked.
