Service rapide, très courtois. L'établissement est en rénovation mais il y a très peu d'inconvénients pour la clientèle et le personnel fait tout son possible pour les réduire. Le service wi-fi est bon, le déjeuner inclus est varié et bon. Je suis retourné plusieurs fois à cet établissement et j'en demeure très content.
