The Bad
As mentioned above, there were very few reviews for this hotel online at the time this editorial was written. Of those consulted, however, one guest described the breakfast as frugal. Another patron noted, "Breakfast was self service and we were provided some fruit and fresh bread from a bread-machine in the morning. You are encouraged to do your own dishes and other tasks by little hand written signs. Overall, it felt more like an AirBnB than a B&B".
