Superb location. Cozy, stylish and warm. I was stranded here after a sudden blizzard and could not have been at a better place. The town is also very attractive. The road over the mountain is precipitous in places and in winter studded tyres are a necessity - as I found out!

Terrible bed! The mattress was too old and worn, very uncomfortable... Bad sleep and backache. They should urgently replece it. And the walls were so thin that we could hear all the noises coming from other rroms and the living room. There are notices asking other guests to be silent because of the thin walls, but guest do what they want. The best things in these place were the views from the dining room and the recommendations from the Spanish employee.
