Fodor's Review

This low-rise hotel has a relaxed, casual environment and feels like a resort in the city. This is the place for animal lovers: three resident alpacas munch on the grassy banks, and peacocks stroll through bushes heavy with pink and yellow roses. It's 2 km (1 mi) from the center of town, so take a taxi unless you're up for a 45-minute walk. The restaurant is famous for its fish—try the trout marinated in brandy.
