The short stay at Hitgeheim was the cherry on top of our holiday and we could not have asked for a better way to spend the last few days of our break. The staff are friendly, always willing and smiling. The meals were not only beautifully presented but also absolutely delicious. Congratulations to Peter. Thank you for making our stay a memorable one! See you soon.
