The room was very spacious, clean and had everything it needed. The bed was very comfortable and there wasn't any noise during the night outside.Information about the area was provided in the room and the hosts are very happy to tell you more about where to go, what to do and what to see.Breakfast is served to your choice: scrambled, fried or poached eggs, bacon, sausage, tomatoes or other vegetables and potatoe cakes. Besides that there is also a buffet with fresh and dried fruits, cereals, yoghurt, toast, cheese and syrups.We really enjoyed our stay at Azalea's!
