I was a quite nice experience. The hotel staff was very nice. The only thing that I think that can be improved is the food.

I love the place, is gorgeous and I learned a lot about gardening and housekipping too.
The owners até always there and they do not mind help you in all kind of ways possible.
My only problems were the dinner good that sometimes is too few and sometimes too much, and the location If you are looking for see around, can be little hard because the buses stop working at 9pm and the touristic cities are too far from there. But I liked the experience and I am very greatfull for what I learn with them.

I spent nearly a month in hotel Wyllandrie, most of the time working in the kitchen. The load highly depended on the amount of guests, however Eric and Esther would alway make sure I was okay. You also have to respect the environment of the hotel outside your shifts.
The food was generally good, but in case you preffer more variety for breakfast/lunch, you can always get anything from the nearby supermarket. The free time I spent enjoying the beautiful Ootmarsum and its surroundings, either by bike or taking a walk.
Overall this experience thought me a lot and I am grateful :) Thank you!
