old times sake


Had not stayed here for nearly 54 years (You can guess what the special stay was) and it was all we hoped for.

An experience nice to have made but not to be repeated

The room and bathroom were not particularly clean and some aspects made a rather neglected impression.

The dinner was rather disappointing quality and quantity wise espcially with regard to its price. It was, however, an interesting experience to stay in this ancient house that has such a long history.
