    • 8.0.Very good

      Wir waren das 3. Mal im Helvetia. Im großen und ganzen war es gut - jedoch blieb es hinter den anderen beiden Aufenthalten zurück. Das Frühstücksbuffet als auch das Abendmenü waren bis dato immer ein kulinarisches Highlight vor bzw. nach den Wanderungen; dieses Mal war es einfach nur gut. Die einfachen Zimmer haben leider immer noch keine Insektengage, somit war die Tapete von erschlagenen Fliegen, Mücken gezeichnet. Auch fehlte wie sonst das Willkommenspralinchen, lediglich der kleine Teller stand leer auf dem Schrank. Wenn man das erste Mal dort gewesen wäre, würde man bestimmt nichts vermissen. Doch für uns war es mir den ersten beiden Aufenthalten nicht zu vergleichen. Irgendwie fehlte dieses Mal die Liebe zum Detail. Ein Riesenplus bekommt die herrliche Sauna im Mühlenhof.

      Kleinschalig hotel. Alles is bioligisch. Hotel is super schoon.. Personeel bij receptie is vriendelijk maar bij vragen over fietsverhuur geven ze geen antwoord. Bedienend personeel is wel aardig. Kamers klein en beetje muf. Slappe kussens en het gordijn bestaat uit twee lappen die niet geheel sluiten en doorschijnend zijn. Douche is goed.
