This is an older property that is run by a couple who live on premises and cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable. When I reported the ice machine was not dispensing ice, the gentleman offered to get me some ice from their freezer.
The rooms are very clean and the housekeeping staff is great. When I left the following morning, the housekeeper was cleaning the room next door. She made a point of coming out and wishing me a safe trip-nice gesture. The continental breakfast with delicious German pastries, fresh fruit, juice and coffee or special teas was great.
My only problem was I do not like insects. About 8 PM I noticed a huge black bug crawling around the door. It quickly decided to join me on the bed which sent me into a panic. I called the front desk and the gentleman came and said, "Oh, it's not a roach, it's just a cricket" Unfortunately seeing one bug even if just a cricket made it hard for me to sleep. About midnight after the front desk had closed until 7:30 in the morning, I turned the light on to work on the computer and saw two more "crickets"-one behind the bed that scampered behind the headboard and the other one by the TV. I stayed awake most of the night with the light on hoping that would keep the insects hiding. I didn't see them again, but when I opened my suitcase tonight where I am staying I found a half dead "cricket" inside my suitcase.
With little sleep my plan to leave at 7 AM was not possible. When I went over for the breakfast, I told the woman at the front desk who I had not seen before my sleep and enjoyment of my stay had been hindered by huge black bugs. Her reply was "It's just a cricket."
