We are two mature (over 65) friends and traveller companions. We love to stay in unique places and this one was unique to the point that upon entrance to the dungeon, we questioned our sanity. What are we doing here? Where are the lights, the windows, the phone? We were in the dungeon - literally. My friend said "let's pick the bedrooms closer to the bathroom and the door". There are 3 bedrooms. The first night was so dark that I tought that this would be what death feels like. But we both slept quite well in our separate and not so close bedrooms. Our gracious hostess made us breakfast to order. The second night was more relaxed and since we already survived the first nigth, we were able to enjoy it more. It looked more like a Disney place.
As I was showing my pictures today, a much younger friend said she would not dare to stay in a place like this. Power to us mature ladies!
