Wir haben uns während der Übernachtung sehr wohl gefühlt. Zum Frühstück ist uns nur aufgefallen, dass viele kleine Plastikbehälter (Margarine, Marmelade, Nussnougat-Creme) vorhanden waren. Inwieweit diese ersetzt werden könnten, können wir nicht beurteilen, aber etwas weniger Umverpackung wäre da schön.

Die Abtrennung zwischen Dusche und Toilette ist nicht ausreichend, Wasser spritzt bis zur Toilettenschüssel. Es ist ungünstig, dass man den Toilettenraum verlassen und die Türklinke anfassen muss, bevor man zum Wassbecken kommt.
