Acceptable”
it was once probably amazing. Now decaying. No investment. Food poor, staff unsupported and poorly trained. They ahve raised their concerns. Helga is deaf to it all. Place falling apart. Needs an injection of energy and money.

Not the Money worth they charge!”
The rooms, espacially the bathroom, are in a bad condition. The Restaurant and bar has charme and is fancy, if someone like the style, but the rooms are not clean, the furniture are cheap and espacially the bathroom has to be refurbished. It is not the money worth, they charge.

Unique place”
in magical settings with helpful staff and great food. The owner, charming Mme Helga still around and happy to guide you around in her truly historical family estate full of art objects and great stories hanging in the air where even M Gandhi spent a few nights, a must to visit...

Definitely not a place for families with young kids”
Helga's Folly is an overpriced, dirty hostel in an OK location. We were traveling with our two young sons and the room was dirty and the quality of the furniture and fittings awful. If you like staying in a slightly depressing mausoleum this is the place to be. On the positive side, the staff was really helpful and tried to accommodate our requests. You could see they were understaffed and overworked.
