Very clean, spacious and well equipped rooms. (Number 71) Nice and quiet on an evening, no traffic noise. Friendly staff, all very helpful and polite. Good breakfast and the evening meal in the restaurant was fantastic. Not had a steak as good for a long time. Overall 5 stars and excellent value as well.

Let's get the negatives out of the way first because it won't take long. Yes the hotel is in Ailingen and not Friedrichshafen and a car is a necessity and, whilst very comfortable and spacious, the rooms are rather unimaginative in terms of décor and facilities. That over with, let's move an to everything there is to enjoy about this... More

Stayed there twice (July 2006 and July 2007) as a member of a company conference. Luxurios hotel in the middle of small village Ailingen near Friedrichshafen, Very nice interior and very good food. Facilitated with sanarium, sauna and pool. Although in 2006 the sauna was out of order during my stay, the year after it was OK. Did not pay... More

I was really looking forward to this trip. 20th wedding anniversary back to the first place my then girlfriend and I took a holiday together. We chose the Flare Hotel Gerbe based on the reviews we had read and the photos which made the hotel look superb and in a peaceful location. Firstly, the hotel is 2.5 miles away from... More

This was our first trip to the area, and indeed our first family holiday in Germany. As other reviewers have pointed out, it is in the smaller town of Ailingen rather than in Friedrichshafen, so you need a car. Also the decor is definitely old skool, the rooms were a little bit musty, the wifi is a bit of a... More

We booked a room because of ease of parking. We were driving and wanted to make sure to have free parking. There is no lack of parking at Hotel Gerbe. We were there off season and appeared to be some of the only guests in this gigantic place. It is nowhere near any sites or activities, so would only really... More

This hotel was a good choice for our family of five. The junior suite comfortably slept all of us, and the grounds were large enough for the kids to have a good run around. There was a small playground and pool, although without a shallow end, wasn't ideal. The hotel restaurant was a wondeful surprise, with excellent service and a... More

My husband and I holidayed here for a week in September 2008. It's an absolute gem of a hotel. We booked directly with the hotel and got a rate of 124Euro per day for 2 people on a B&B basis. Would recommend spending that bit extra for a room with a south balcony facing the hotel park side - as... More
