Hi Mr Ungerer thank you for your kind words. As you know during this time of Covid it has been a struggle to maintain the business as usual. You would also have noticed that we are 100% fully booked. I therefore want to thank you for assisting my manager to reset the water pump and restore water to all the guests. We hope you see you again soon. Regards Douglas and staff.
