  • 4.0.Fair

    nicht empfehlenswert

    Die Anlage ist meilenweit von dem entfernt, wie sie beschrieben wird. Das riesige Areal war wie ausgestorben, beim Abendessen waren wir alleine in einem großen Speisesaal, vergleichbar mit einer Bahnhofshalle, die Speisekarte war ein Fake, denn es gab nur ein Gericht und das war mässig. Das Frühstück war mehr als mäßig. Der Pool war verschmutzt und nur zum Teil gefüllt. Auch hier keine Gäste. Das weitläufige Areal hat schon längere Zeit keine Pflege erhalten. Die Einrichtung der großen Zimmer ist in die Jahre gekommen, die Fenster waren nicht zu öffnen, die sanitären Anlagen bräuchten eine Generalüberholung, lockere Wasserhähne, mässiger Wasserdruck. Man hatte den Eindruck, dass die Bulldozer für den Abriss schon in den Startlöchern stehen. Schade, war sicherlich vor Jahren traumhaft.
