          Just slept 1 night there.. Not only was the floor dirty but also the "pillowcase". I def. recommend bringing your sleepbag or a cover. Furthermore does the Wi-Fi not work properly. It's very annoying, wouldn't choose the accommodation again.

          We stayed for a night in the family room before catching the ferry. The room and linen were dirty and very overpriced for what you get. I would not recommend staying here, will go back to staying at the Jugglers Rest in the future.

          The reception was fruendly. The house is really cozy. I like that they have guitars in the living room ready for use. I got to hire a mountainbike for free which is nice. Not the best mtb but still, it gets you around.
