I've been driving past this charming little hotel many times, and decided one day that next time, I'll book a room there. And what a fantastic hotel it is! You're going around 100 years back in time as soon as you open the door, and what a nice feeling that was! No sterile white walls, modern design or high-tech gadgets in sight! Everything in this hotel, down to the smallest details, has a story, and the interior has been kept as original as possible! The rooms (11 of them) are all individual decorated, have great beds, and the bathrooms was modern, but kept in the old style. The staff makes you feel at home as soon as you meet them, and the breakfast and the food at the hotel is outstanding!
I've been so lucky that I lived there for three whole days, and I'm definitely going back!
This is the first hotel I've been too, that I will go back to -just to stay at the hotel!
Thanks for three fantastic days!
