Property conditions & facilities

2/10 Poor

Primitive Ausstattung unserer Räume, zu teuer
Das Gebäude in dem wir untergebracht waren stammte wahrscheinlich noch aus der Zeit als diese Anlage eine Farm war. Der Zustand ließ annehmen, daß hier früher die  Farmarbeiter wohnten. Die Zimmer waren klein. Gerade das Bett passte hinein. Es gab keinen Tisch, nur eine Holzplatte an der Wand die man hochklappen konnte. Die Sitzgelegenheit war so niedrig, daß man nicht daran sitzen konnte. Die Einrichtung war primitiv, alt, abgewohnt und schmuddelig. Unterstes Nivea. An der Decke hingen in allen Räumen nackte Glühlampen. Sonstige Beleuchtungen gab es nicht. Das Bad war technisch nicht sicher. Der Boiler war unverkleidet und über dem Waschbecken montiert, das daher kein Licht hatte. Der Sicherheitsüberlauf war an der Decke über der Dusche. Sollte er ausgelöst werden und jemand steht in der Dusche wird er verbrüht. Im Bad lag nur eine bereits intensiv benützte Seife und auch die 2 relativ kleinen Handtücher sahen so aus. Die Wände waren teilweise verschimmelt. Die Abfahrt zu den Appartments ist so schlecht, daß sie mit einem normalen Pkw nicht zu befahren ist. Das zugesagte Internet funktionierte in den Zimmern nicht. Die Küchenausstattung war äusserst dürftig zB gab es nur 1 schäbiges Weinglas aus Plastik und 1 Wasserglas. Das Frühstück war ok. Die Aussenanlage ist ungepflegt. Für diese simple Unterkunft ist der Preis  zu hoch. Wir würden bestimmt nicht nochmals kommen, geschweige denn es jemandem empfehlen.
