Rest Easy


From October 1st, 2020, wearing a face mask is required when visiting our restaurants. This applies to all team members on duty and our guests attending a breakfast- or lunch/brunch buffet. Our goal is to do our utmost to prevent the spreading of the Coronavirus within our premises. Guests are welcome to bring their own face mask or receive one from our team upon arrival.
We will continue doing our best to provide our guests and team members with the safest environment possible. The only visitor that is not welcome to our hotels is the Coronavirus. All others, we give a warm welcome to a scrumptious dining experience.
