    We stayed there only one night. The accomodation is even suitable for self-catering. We enjoyed the breakfast, which was very delicious. At the arrival we got a free upgrade of our appartment. The staff was very friendly.

    Good localization and the staff is very supportive. The guest house have a awsome garden when you can stay and enjoy a fresh coffee while you make your trip plan. The breakfast was very good and delicious.
