Guest Comments

Friendly establishment with a hands-on manageress who took a great deal of time to chat to us and give us helpful tips. Her response to all our enquiries showed knowledge of her establishment and a willingness to make the effort to make our stay pleasant. Warm, cosy rooms. I understand that a TV will be placed in each room (in the slave quarters room which is great for those winter getaways). I would however have appreciated a shower rather than a bath and a wonderful fireplace in the room or lounge area in the slave quarters as this is a wonderful winter retreat. A minor problem was sorted out quickly and efficiently.Thank you to all the staff at Jan Harmsgat.
