Location & premises:
About 1km to old town. Plenty of parking. Nice large yard. It was too cold outside (15 degrees Celsius), so we didn't use the pool. At night (after 10) access to the premises is through a keycoded gate and the house door is keycoded, too. All seems very safe. The garden is beautiful.
Reservation and reception:
Quick email communication during reservation process. Friendly reception when we got there.
We had a double room with a comfortable 1.6m bed on the first floor. There is no elevator, but the steps are easy and wide and not steep at all. The room had a small desk two chairs. The chairs are a bit uncomfortable but nice to look at. There is a tiny flat screen TV on the wall, we didn't use it. Room seemed newly renovated, very clean not worn out at all (wallpaper, windows etc). New electric sockets, the light switches still old. We didn't use the air conditioning as it was cold outside. The heating worked very well. Wifi is already in room next to the stairs very slow and you have to enter lots of personal data to the provider for access. There is no safe, and no fridge. Very nice tiled floor.
Also a very nicely tiled floor and is very well lit. The hair dryer small but efficient, however one of those where you constantly have to push a button for it to work. If you book a room with a bath, it really means "bath" i.e. no shower curtain. Grohe brand fixtures. Plenty of water and good pressure.
The breakfast is continental, and my preference is full English, but as far as continental breakfasts go, this was very good. I don't do hot drinks so I got an extra orange juice which is something that rarely happens. Bread and croissants are served and very tasty. They bring seconds. Eggs you boil yourself. There were two cereals, joghurt and a selection of cheeses (6 different) and cold cuts (just 2 different). The jam with white wine was very nice. Also the breakfast room as a whole is nice (wintergarden).
