Super Lage und toller Ausblick auf Ribe. Das Frühstück war toll: selbstgemachtes Knäckebrot, Müsli, Marmelade und viele leckere Käsesorten. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Alles gut, besonders die Lage und die Freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiterinnen. Was ein wenig störte waren die über den Betten angebrachten Betten, die man, wenn man zu viert in dem Zimmer gewesen wäre, hätte ausklappen können. In der Nacht stieß man ständig gegen diese Betten, die über dem Bett, in dem man schlief, hingen. Ansonsten alles prima.

Es freut uns sehr, dass Sie einen angenehmen Aufenthalt in unserer Herberge hatten. Es ist uns bewusst, dass der Abstand der Betten in einigen Zimmern zu klein ist und dies einige unserer Gästen stört. Wir arbeiten daran, eine gute Lösung für diese Herausforderung zu finden.
