Wir haben das geräumige Doppelzimmer genossen mit eigenem Bad. Kostenloses WLAN und Parkplatz waren super. Der Fahrradstand war allerdings sehr klein. Super Preis -Leistungsverhältnis.

Am Empfang sollte noch ein elektronisches Lesegerät für die Credit-Card angeschafft werden. Die manuelle Eingabe ist sehr umständlich.
