HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 June 2016

I was there for two days and I felt like family the moment I arrived until I checked out. Lise and Hans takes guests comfort very seriously. "Fancy Friday" on it's own is worth the stay. But there is so much more. The views from the bedroom balcony and the restaurant and breath taking .
