            Lovely Experience”

            Madeleine was so helpful and friendly. Room was lovely, comfortable, clean and had all the necessary requirements. Situated perfectly!! Felt very safe (which is always important for me). Will definitely be back.

            Owners were approachable and most accommodating to our needs. They went above and beyond their scope of their service offering. This was appreaciated. The breakfast can do with something extra but this didn't detract from our stay.

            Hosts were most accommodating. You are a short trip from the airport, so perfectly located.

            Wir würden sehr freundlich empfangen und haben direkt Restaurant Empfehlungen in unmittelbarer Nähe bekommen. Da es sehr sicher ist in der Gegend sind wir auch abends zu Fuß dahin. Das Auto konnte im Innenhof gesichert stehen. Unser Zimmer war sehr groß und super sauber und geräumig. Morgens würden wir mit einem tollen Frühstück erwartet, welches eine Auswahl an Müsli , Joghurt Obst aber auch Toast und verschiedenen aufschnitten bereit hielt. Zusätzlich durften wir uns aussuchen, ob wir frisches Rührei oder Waffeln haben wollten. Wir waren leider nur für einen Zwischenstopp da. Daher beschränkt sich die Bewertung auf den Weg zum Flughafen ( welcher 10 min dauerte ) und am nächsten morgen weiter. Wir können es aber wärmstens empfehlen!
