This hotel is located near the waters in Gottlieben. It looks like Escape to the Country. Beautiful wooden frame buildings. Hotel and restaurant. I had room 11, spacious, above the main entrance. Lookout on restaurant opposite and parking place. Room is comfortable. Breakfast starts at 7am, enough choice of tasty breads, yogurts. Parking is with a disc until 7pm. Approx... More

Everyday they cleaned the room and changed all the linens. The room is spacious. Everybody are friendly, warm and hospitable even the whole community of gottlibien. We really enjoy our stay there. The problem is, you have to walk around 10-15 mins to ride the train.

This hotel is very, like VERY old, and it shows. The rooms look like something from the 70's, but they are clean, spacious and most of them with a scenic view of River Rhine. The buildings look like a castle, and they are situated in the small but lovely city of Gottlieben. Food is typically German = Good, simple and... More

Rooms are pretty old, the bed a little bit too soft. Staff is friendly and the breakfast is super. Considering the area, which is pretty expensive this hotel is not bad, not nothing special neither. The thing I didn't like is that the pictures they use in the website are completely different from the reality.

It is our favorite place to stay when in Switzerland's Northeast. A few km from the ancient Konstanz and on the Rhine river connecting the Lake of Constance's 'upper lake' and 'lower lake' you find this small agglomeration of Hotels, restaurants and, across a moat, a privately owned mysterious chateau. The Hotel is a classic, quiet and comfortable. Excellent traditional... More
