Located in Bodensee, Germany, it's 1.5 hours drive from Zurich, Switzerland. The best thing about this wellness hotel is just the location in Bodensee (Charming, Inviting and Relaxing) that's it! The Hotel's Lift was an eye catcher because its very, very old. The whole property needs a major renovation especially the facade. It reminds me of an old movie taken... More

This hotel is a time capsule from a different era. My great grand father stayed here in 1936 so I wanted to stay here. The room we had was huge with windows onto a balcony over looking the Bodensee. The ceilings must be 4 meters high. Our bed was very comfortable. The bath was wonderful with a deep soaking tub.... More

We had a fantastic time at this hotel and were lucky with the weather- warm and sunny enough to enjoy a lake swim. Public areas are beautiful, majestic with high ceilings, large windows, wonderful lake front terrace for dining. Wonderful new indoor pool and renovated spa area- lounge in bathrobes outside the spa/pool area on recliners set out on the... More

Hotels like this do not come cheap, but they are worth every penny. Views over Bodensee are spectacular, even including a flying Zeppilin! Service is outstanding, with full attention to detail. Food was excellent, we even managed one evening meal on the outside terrace, ( under a canopy as it later started to rain) and one breakfast, in the glorious... More

The hotel looks like an old grand hotel from the 1880's (which it is). Service was excellent, the waiter gave us a great wine recommentation. Food was very good, BBQ for dinner and a great offer for breakfast. Next to the hotel is a "Seebad" where you can jump right into Lake Constance and enjoy the clear water.

I wouldn't have believed it if I had not experienced it myself but "it is like travelling to the past." Why would they have someone playing piano from late afternoon until 11pm every night, without stop? Why would you have high tea in the afternoon? Why would service and the quality of food and linens be beyond reproach? Why do... More

Don't know why it has recently gotten two (though it is clearly the same story) bad reviews..... I love this hotel Beautiful hotel directly located at the lake. Great service and beautifully decorated. Very elegant.....if you are lucky you'll see Royals, celebrities and Nobel Laureates. Stay for a couple of days longer to enjoy the Lake Constance!

Two friends and I visited this place and first impressions where poor; painful service that only grew to excruciating by the time we got "dumped" in our cells / ("rooms"). For €170+ per night the only good thing was the view, but the cost is in terms of terrible rooms that are not part of the main building. These are... More

I struggle to find anything good to say about my stay here. On the positive side, the communal areas of the hotel were lovely. Negative, well, where do I start! I was staying one night with friends on a driving holiday. We have large sports cars and specifically requested parking that would be spacious enough. The garage at the hotel... More
