The hotel has 204 rooms, all with central heating/cooling, TV, safe, minibar, hair dryer and free wi-fi. Guests can also use the indoor pool, sauna, steam room, spa and gym (additional charges apply). The hotel also has its own Chapel and Stations of the Cross in the garden for quiet reflection. You can choose from a single, twin or double room (an extra child bed is available upon request).
