    Nadine H
    Dear Sir or Madam, we would like to book your wonderful guest house from 23.-25.03.2016. We travel with 2 adults and our 3-years old son. Our son doesn't need a big bed, this would be to big (to high) for him to sleep alone in it. At home he still sleeps in a baby crib/baby cot. We would like to rent a nice suite with a baby cot or a mattress or something like that to place in our room. Is this possible? Which kind of room you can recommend for me and my family? Thanks for your reply. Kind regards Nadine and family
