The staff were very friendly and helpful as I booked a room. They were very accommodating to my specific circumstances and did not hesitate to adapt their normal routine to make sure that I am sorted. I can really recommend them for a great night's rest and delicious breakfast.

The "sub-standard" door is on schedule to be replaced. Our gate is closed, but is only locked at 11h00. Staff are moving around the premises all the time. Opening and closing the gate is also clearly audible in staff quarters. History has proven that mentioned procedures is sufficient, because no issues has been reported to date.
