8/10 Very good

Very cute and cosy
The staff welcomed us by the ferry where they came to pick us up. They were warm and nice. The rooms were cute and cosy. Food was made by order. They would always ask if we wanted to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and asked what time we wanted it to be ready. They were very polite and helpful when we wanted to find out where town was and where we could go for swimming. When leaving the place we had to leave early due to the ferry, where the staff had packed a small breakfast for us to take with us on the ferry. All in all a good experience.
