Aufenhalt hat uns bestens gefallen. Verbesserungsvorschlag: Vergrößerung der Selbstkochküche, bessere Ergonomik.

Zimmer im Sommer sehr heiß. Keine Möglichkeit zum Fenster ganz zu öffnen. Die Türen knarzen so laut. Hier sollte man mal ein paar Tropfen Öl investieren. Die Zimmer sind sehr hellhörig. Wir hatten aber sehr rücksichtsvolle Nachbarn. Konnten gut schlafen, und wurden mit einem seht tollen englischen Frühstück überrascht. Werde hier wieder Station machen auf dem nach London.

Insgesamt alles sehr angenehm. Der einzige Kritikpunkt: bei früherer Ankunft ist alles verschlossen und man kann auch nicht die Gemeinschaftsräume nutzen.
