Mostly wonderful moderate weather during Winter.

We only had one night but found our room extremely comfortable. Mariaan was a charming host and made certain that we knew where everything was etc. and not to hesitate to chat to her if we wanted to know anything or were experiencing any problems. It was a pity we couldn't stay longer!
We zijn vriendelijk onthaald door de gastvrouw. De kamers zijn zeer mooi ingericht en de bedden perfect in orde.
Our stay were excellent and Mariaan is an excellent host.
