Wellness in the Volcanic Eifel
The Michels Wellness- & Wohlfühlhotel is located directly at the Schalkenmehrener Maar in the Vulkaneifel, Germany. The family-run four-star superior hotel offers its guests relaxation, culinary delights and plenty of nature. When it comes to hygiene, the hotel relies on cleaning solutions from Ecolab.
Behind the white facade with the slate roof hides a family-run house with a long host tradition. 52 rooms are currently available to guests, from May 2020 there will be 65 rooms. "We are currently expanding our hotel," explains junior manager Julia Drayer, who together with her sister supports the parents in managing the house. The expansion of the wellness area was recently completed. After excursions into the surrounding area, Michels guests can now relax in a 2,000 sqm spa landscape with indoor and outdoor pools, various saunas with infusion ceremonies, relaxation rooms and wellness treatments in the beauty department.
"Our guests come here to relax, enjoy and recharge their batteries," says the young hotel manager. Three volcanic lakes can be found near the wellness hotel between Bonn and Trier. The surroundings are suitable for a wide range of activities at any time of year. The enjoyment is complete thanks to the very good cuisine, which is under the care of the patron. The cozy restaurant serves mainly seasonal and regional products.
The concept gives the operators a high occupancy rate and many regular guests. "Our house offers well-being feeling atmosphere , calls Julia Drayer a central success factor. In addition to personal service, good food and beautifully designed rooms, the factor of cleanliness also contributes considerably to the guests feeling comfortable in the house. "Good hygiene is very important in all areas," confirms Drayer. This applies to well-kept rooms as well as to impeccable crockery and a hygienically impeccable wellness area.
The hotel works with Ecolab products in all areas. "We have a cleaning concept from a single source, all products build on each other. This simplifies our ordering process and makes handling easier for our employees." KitchenPro is used in the kitchen with ready-to-use solutions and innovative dosing technology, the solid products ensure clean dishes. In the housekeeping area, employees work with products from the Oasis range.
In the new wellness area, the hotel has had very good experiences with the Nito Clean foam gun. "This cleaning system makes our work much easier," says Drayer. The foam gun is simply connected to a water hose and applies the cleaning foam in the correct dosage to horizontal and vertical surfaces. This allows large surfaces to be cleaned hygienically and efficiently.
„Ecolab is our all-round partner for hygiene. We appreciate not only the cleaning agents, but also the service provided by Ecolab. The employees are quickly on site and have the right solution for all our needs.“
