Had no troubles getting...

From beginning to end June and Carl were the best hosts ever and are the most genuine people you will ever meet (good to see that friendly northern spirit down south!). It was such a privilege to stay in such a beautifully well kept hotel. The room was of a very high standard and the breakfast was so worth getting...
