Wonderful room, looking over the Wilderness, fantastic facilities in the room. Husband enjoyed the bath, with views. Amazing glass staircase, and interior features. As for Peter, what a wonderful host, cooking the best English breakfast especially for my husband the 'Big FB' breakfast. Organising taxi's for us, and making dinner reservations. Hope to return next year.

This place is just amazing: not only the very stylish, yet comfy house, that Peter shares with his guests (but you have privacy all the time!), but Peter makes it all: outstanding hospitality, gourmet breakfast are only parts of a just perfect stay there, thanks again!
