The buffet-style breakfast is said to offer a great variety of superb dishes. From creamy scrambled eggs to delicious hot drinks and fresh bread to yummy croissants, the meal is found to be incredibly well prepared and by no means small either. There is also praise for the high-quality coffee brewed every morning here.
