Middle of Nowhere! Aug 09, 2013
So, I can't comment on the cost because I stayed as part of a seminar and accomodation was included. However, I can comment on my experience. If you are looking to be in the middle of nowhere and at one with nature then this is the place. There is a beautiful lake outside but unfortunately could not swim in it as during the winter loads of fish died in there and the water is currently not the safest. Plus it smells like dead fish! There is a forest near by which has good walking trails.
The hotel is pretty basic, so much so that they do not change your towels unless if you basically harrass them. The hotel also has a restraunt attached to it and the food there is decent. However, they do have a 'policy' where they do not provide you with tap water. If you want any water to drink, you have to pay for it! When we first arrived we were told only bottled water was available at 2.80eur per glass, but after asking over and over they started offering tap water at 50cents per glass. They do say they have wi-fi but it is almost like they do not since it is only available at reception
All in all, it was an okay experience considering it is not somewhere where you expect the best.
