          We went to the restaurant and the waiter didn't have knowledge about what they prepare and how they prepare it, probably he was new or something. we asked for the brownies with ice cream and coffee. and took around 40 minutes to finish our order.

          In our confirmation e-mail we inform our gasts that reception closes at 5 pm. And if gasts want to check in later then that, we ask them to inform us. And we are happy to stay in for a later check in.
