Hospitality and reception were beautiful. Cozy rooms and generously equipped, clean place and the stream that flows at the rear position magical atmosphere.
 Reviewed by Idit Rubin over a year ago

The rooms was truly 4 star quality. Great food and very friendly host and staff. Will definitely go back again. Just one thing short and that is a light outside the door that leads to the river but everything else was excellent.
