“Within this small township, we didn’t expect a high-quality motel like the Diplomat and were absolutely surprised. Not only was our room very clean, but also a reasonable size and equipped with all you would expect from a high-quality accommodation. An additional bonus is the attached restaurant with different specials every day and reasonable prices.”
