Welcome to our lovely hotel’s web site. I hope you find it useful and informative. John a Falkland Islander and Elleke from the land of windmills have worked or lived abroad for a large part of their lives which has involved extensive hotel stays in many different types of hotel around the world. We therefore think we have a very good understanding of what makes a good hotel stay. We strive therefore to get both the big and small things right. Nonetheless we are not perfect but we are working on it and we very much welcome guest feedback to help us improve. I hope that you will choose to stay with us and sample our hospitality.
