Das WLAN hat nicht funktioniert und es wurde nichts dafür getan, dass es wieder funktioniert. Es gab nur die Antwort "Wir wechseln den Provider und bis dahin funktioniert es halt nicht"

Positiv: Unkompliziertes CheckIn; Personal freundlich, hilfsbereit und kommunikativ; sehr gut ausgestattete Self-catering-Küche gleich am Aufenthalts-/Speiseraum, relativ bequeme Betten Negativ: der laufende Fernseher störte beim Essen, die mitreisenden Ladies beklagten sich über relativ schmutzige Duschen
