Chateau Franz is in an ideal location pretty much in the centre of town. It offers free popcorn, bbq, movies to borrow and has a spa. It also offers a good internet connection point. We stayed in a double ensuit which was excellent value for money and couldn't have asked for more. ... more

The cottages are clean with a funky decor. The kitchenette is basic, but is backed up with a great communal kitchen. There are lots of communal spaces to relax and meet other travellers.

I didn’t like that there were no Electrical suckets in the rooms, and you had to leave your belongings in the hall way for it to charge.
