With all her heart
For Steen and Annette Stenstrup, the owners of the hotel, the news comes as a very pleasant surprise.

He also added that he and his wife were deeply committed to the experience guests had whilst staying at the hotel.

“Here at our hotel, we work hard every day, but my wife runs it with all her heart – that is probably what the guests have taken note of.”

Small oasis
