I am Peter, the host of the hotel. I am a 74 year old German and the manager of the hotel where I also live in. Since 12 years I do live permanently in The Gambia but have been traveling to this country since 42 years. The hotel was developed out of a private home which I build in 2012. We are starting now into our 3rd season and for the first two seasons the hotel got the certificate of excellence from tripadvisor. I want to upgrade our menu quality and diversity by the help of a skilled cook. I am a retired consultant for Renewable Energy Power Plants in Germany. The hotel for me is part of a hobby and part commercial.
The name of the hotel is my German family name translated in to English "Weissferdt = White Horse"
