    A pet-friendly staycation
    Want to take your furry friends with you? In each room guests can find a special in-room pet menu with a variety of food and treats for that extra pamper time. In-house guests can use the new playground during their stay and it is even open to guests who are popping over for lunch or dinner. The playground will mean that pet parents will be able to spend time with their pets out of the house. That means, no more cancelling reservations after you get the puppy eyes from your furry family member.
