Very Good 8.0
Une ambiance familiale bien agréable
Accueil chaleureux, ambiance familiale, hôtes serviables et attentionnés. En revanche, les deux molosses qui montent la garde prennent leur mission un peu trop à coeur. Attention si vous craignez les chiens. La localisation un peu à l'écart du centre-ville, dans un quartier sécurisé, ainsi que la possibilité de garer sa voiture à l'abri sont des atouts non négligeables.
