j ai tout aimé, en particulier l'accueil, le personnel, le cadre, la proppreté, la situation. par contre la chambre à deux lits superposés manquait de table et de placard. je reviendrai Mireille

Wir bewohnten ein Zimmer im Untergeschoss, weswegen es manchmal etwas unangenehm roch oder man abends gelegentlich durch Gespräche draußen gestört wurde. Für die wenige Zeit, die man aber eigentlich auf dem Zimmer ist, beeinträchtigt das den Wohlfühlfaktor unwesentlich, es fiel nur bei der Ankunft negativ auf.

Gefallen haben uns Haus, Freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiter, Gestaltung Rezeption und Essraum. Ein abschließbares Bad pro Zimmer wäre besser. Tisch und Stühle fehlen. Zu viert einen Stoffwürfel als Sitzgelegenheit. Das Fenster ließ sich nur knapp 10 cm öffnen. Lüften nicht möglich. Wasserhahn auf dem Zimmer verkalkt, nur dünne, Wasserstrahlen, die in alle Richtungen gesprüht haben. Die Bäder waren super, auch relativ neu. Gute Duschen, die Toiletten und Waschbecken mit ausreichendem Wasserdruck.
