großes, geräumiges Zimmer, allerdings könnte es etwas sauberer sein. Personal sehr freundlich und Frühstück auch ausreichend.

Belle auberge et cadre magnifique, dépaysement assuré ! Louer des vélos a été génial ! Une signalisation à l'arrêt River Shop serait un plus. L'Irish Breakfast est un peu cher mais très bon.
