2. Furthermore, the Hotel will be entitled to withdraw from the contract with immediate effect if it is not or no longer reasonable for the Hotel to start, continue or fully execute the contractual relationship, including but not limited to:
§ If force majeure/other circumstances beyond the Hotel’s control make executing the contract seem unreasonable;
§ If rooms and/or event rooms are booked using misleading or misrepresented material facts (e.g. the identity of the Guest or the purpose of their booking);
§ If the Hotel has reasonable grounds to believe that the use of the Hotel's services may endanger the smooth running of the business, or the security or reputation of the other guests and/or the Hotel, without this being attributable to the hotel's domain or organisational area.
3. In the aforementioned cases, the Hotel is entitled to immediately withdraw from the contract and the Guest will have no claim to damages. Any advance payments or guarantees paid by the Guest are due and payable to the Hotel in accordance with the provisions laid down in point 12.
12. Liability of the Hotel
1. In principle, the Hotel is only liable to the Guest for willful or grossly negligent damage inflicted on the latter, which has occurred as a direct consequence of the Hotel's failure to fulfil its contractual obligations or of materially inadequate performance. In any case, the sum of the damages is limited to a maximum of the cost of the stay booked by the guest or actually paid upon their departure (excl. VAT and cash payments).
2. In the event of disruption to or a lack of Hotel services, the Hotel will make every effort to remedy the situation upon knowledge thereof or upon receiving a timely complaint from the Guest. The Guest shall make every reasonable effort to remedy the disruption and to minimise possible damage, and shall inform the Hotel immediately of all disruption or damage.
3. In the event of the loss or damage of items brought onto the premises, the Hotel is likewise only liable for willful intent and gross negligence. If the Hotel is liable for third parties, it is likewise only liable in the event of gross negligence on the part of the third party; the Hotel’s liability is excluded if the third party intentionally causes loss or damage.
4. The liability of the Hotel is expressly limited to the sum of the Hotel’s liability insurance coverage, particularly also in the case of third-party and consequential losses. Any further liability is expressly waived. Liability for valuables and cash is only accepted if these are kept in the room safe or were surrendered to reception in return for a receipt. In such cases, liability is limited to a maximum sum of CHF 50,000.00 per claim. The Hotel is not liable for loss or damage that arises as a result of force majeure.
5. All liability claims will be forfeited without compensation if the Guest fails to immediately inform the Hotel in writing upon obtaining knowledge of loss, destruction or damage.
6. In the absence of willful intent or gross negligence, the Hotel is not liable for the loss or damage of the Guest’s parked or maneuvered vehicles and their contents on the Hotel grounds.
7. Messages, mail and goods shipments for the Guest will always be handled with care. The Hotel shall undertake the delivery, safekeeping and – if requested and for a fee – forwarding of such items. Claims for damages not involving willful intent or gross negligence, as well as third-party and consequential losses, are excluded.
