Urlaub mit Kleinkind (2 Jahre)

Dieses Hotel ist in der CH-Hotellandschaft einfach ein Traum und ein Vorzeigebetrieb! Wir (CH-Paar mit Kleinkind) waren vom 06.-08. August 2015 2 Nächte dort in einer Junior Suite. Bereits die Begrüssung, beim Vorfahren mit dem Auto war eine Freude, man(n) bemerkt bereits hier, dass die Mitarbeiterschulung einen grossen Stellenwert hat - Kompliment! Die Lage der Villa und dessen Zimmern ist schlichtweg fantastisch und nicht zu überbieten - die Freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiter ist sehr vorbildlich, vor allem auch zu unser 2-jährigen Tochter - der Wohlfühlfaktor ist nahezu 100. Die Sauberkeit des Zimmers ist nicht mehr zu übertreffen, das Wasser in der Dusche ist leider nicht abgelaufen - nach einem kurzen Feedback diesbezüglich am Empfang wurde dieser Punkt umgehend behoben. Entsprechend dem Hotel benehmen sich die Gäste auch sehr vorzüglich - es ist wirklich eine wahre Freude dort zu übernachten - der Pool bei der Villa war top - ok, das Moos dürfte jeweils aus dem Pool entfernt werden. Der Service am Pool - sehr professionell, mit kalten Erfrischungstüchern. Das Frühstücksbüffet war für uns ausreichend, es könnte sein, dass sich andere Gäste ein etwas grösseres Büffet mit mehr Auswahl gewünscht hätten, für uns war es jedoch in Ordnung, da wir nicht die grossen Frühstücksesser sind. Die Qualität im Restaurant war von Seiten der Mitarbeiter, vor allem dem Maître de Service sowie der Speisen und Getränke höchstprofessionell! Die Preise liegen im höheren Segment, jedoch gerechtfertigt wenn Sie das gesamte Umfeld mit ein beziehen. Nicht zu schlagen ist, dass wenn Sie in der Bar ein Getränk genehmigen der Kellner z.B. mit der ganzen Flasche Gin erscheint und vor den Augen der Gäste ins Glas einschenkt, auch die Mineralwasserflaschen natur oder gesüsst werden erst vor dem Gast geöffnet - WOW Effekt! Fazit: Wir kommen wieder, die Übernachtung, das Essen etc. hat seinen Preis - der Wohlfühlfaktor ist jedoch fast nicht zu übertreffen. Grosses Kompliment an das gesamte Team! PS: ganz ganz kleiner Wehmut - wir haben in der Schweiz 4 Landessprachen und trotzdem verständigt man sich ab und zu in einer 5 Sprache (englisch)

Refreshing works start being needed

Rooms need some refreshing paint and new carpet. Food, garden, location and service are otherwise good.
