Good value for money

The accommodation was always good, breakfasts were excellent, I was very happy with the overall package and felt I got very good value for money.

Planning to go back next year

 
I received good practical information, hotel was very nice, friendly people, excellent food. My stay was too short, I´m planning to go back next year to see the West coast as recommended by Erla Sonja, and stay much longer.
