This is a beautiful property nestled away from the main streets (but across from the New Harbour). Enjoy lovely gardens and a perfect salt water pool, comfortable rooms and cozy common spaces, as well as great and friendly service. All around - a winner.

Great value!
The staff were very friendly and provided great service. Our room was delightful and provided the perfect quiet romantic get away. The location was within walking of nice restaurants and just a short drive from the Harbour.

Dejlig gårdhave til alle værelser og tæt på hvaler
Personalet var godt og man havde en dejlig balkon eller gårdhave til alle værelserne. 3 min. Kørsel fra hotellet kunne man se hvaler ude i bugten. Skønt sted !
