Excellent location, breakfast was lovely, had a great time. Just one thing our room had a connecting door to the room next door and the people were very loud for a long time around midnight, could actually hear their conversation amongst other things. Had trouble going to sleep .

The views from the balcony were fantastic. The hotel is positioned in a pretty central spot. The buffet breakfast is very average.
