I have selected the hotel because it was recommended and sooo highly rated by our friends and colleagues. We spent 3 nights and 4 days in the hotel, 3 adults and one kid.
We went for a 2 room apartment, bedroom plus living room with spare bed.
Our first impression was upon entering the rooms that they are too small. Than we tried to accommodate ourselves, there was no real place to put our luggages, things and belongings in the rooms and in the bathroom. We missed the usual bedside tables as well. The room outfit is very nice and unique but sometimes you must consider also the practical side of interior design...
Where to put bathroom assessories next to the wahsbasin - we were 4 of us...
It is my personal mania taking shower without holding the shower nozzle in one of my hands - there was no hook to hold it.
The wellness area was OK for us, having a child over 6 who can take 27-28 celsius water temperature and learned to swim already, but families with smaller kids could use the jacuzzi (recommended up to 5 person...) only. It was many times overcrawded with kids and parents, grandparents.
I found it strange why we could not use the deck chairs on the wellness terrasse, they were locked, had to take a sunbath only on the terrasses next to our room on the second floor.
The balconies of the rooms are not separated, it is a one common area, you could easily walk from one room to the other through the balcony, one morning we met a little guy (age 2-3) looking into our room through our open balcony door.
I missed the moscito net, would have been nice to have a protection, my kid got a few mosquito pinches through the night.
That's all the issues but we have of course positive experiences as well just we are maybee too critical guys :-)
The location is just perfect, to walk to the lake, to the cellars, to access from the main road.
The food is very unique and healthy, we always found it tasty, and also the quantity was OK.
The hotel personnel is very nice and friendly, I enjoyed the chats with one of the cleaning ladies, they were very helpful, offering programs as well!
All in all our stay was OK, maybee our expectations have been set too high considering the many recommendations and the hotel prices...
