Freerk and Helpi provided a great setting for the Double Century race. Nothing was too much trouble – even the 4 am breakfast was served with a smile. Thank you once again for hosting us, we look forward to seeing you again in 2017.

Lovely place to stay, very kind and hospitable owners! Delicious breakfast and warm and kind personel. It is a small country hotel with spacious garden rooms and quiet and pittoresk atmosphere. One can have a tasty dinner too. All for reasonable price.

A very nice place with very cost rooms. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed during our stay which was one of our main reasons of staying there. Since there was nothing else offered we had real trouble finding something to eat on a sunday evening. Also the offered Wifi was really bad. But nonetheless the hotel is flawless with very nice...

We had a room at the swimming pool and it was very nice. Separated toilet and shower. everything was clean. Breakfast was eggs, bacon and toasted bread or musli. You can eat here at evening but there are some very nice restuarants closeby.

We never got to meet the owners and therefore found our stay impersonal. The staff saw us in, showed us to the accommodation, attended to us at breakfast and even booked us out. We would have liked to have met the owners as we found the dinner very interesting but never had the opportunity. The staff was courteous and pleasant.

Beautiful location quiet setting. Set at base of Mountain range. Inn keepers are very gracious and hospitable. They are also the chefs! Free breakfast was a full meal with a variety of options. Dinner was a truly enjoyable experience. We were in walking distance off many shops and historical sites. Hiking trails are quick drive away. Other sites are a...
