The guesthouse is on three floors, but the kitchen and the rooms are on first and second floor. A handbasin is in two of the rooms. Three bathrooms with a shower are in the house and outside is a hot tub. Guests have access to cooking facilities and a washing machine. In the kitchen is always coffee and tea available (self service) and there is shampoo and shower gel in the bathrooms.

The rooms are, single, double and a family room. The beds are all brand new and very comfortable. Every bed has new pillows and blankets. Towels are in every room, two for each guest.

We offer breakfast and dinner. Dinner has to be booked in advance. We mostly use food from our own production or from our neighbour farms. Our guests have been very happy with the breakfast buffet, expecially the home made food, for example, bread, jams, cakes, milk, eggs, and fresh vegetables and fruit from our neighbours greenhouse farm.

Smoking is not allowed in the house.

There is internet access in public areas.

In the living room we have brouchers and maps of the area. We try our best to give guests information about interesting places in the neighbourhood, opening hours etc. There is much to see in the neighbourhood and a lot of new things to experience.
