Stayed here 2 days as a Legoland stopover visit on the way home from Italy. Extremely friendly staff and a great restaurant. Value for money all the way. Also a great buffet breakfast is included. Very convenient to both Legoland and the outlet shops at Metzingen. Highly recommended.

We spent one night in the hotel on our long trip & it was great. Our room was renovated with a new bathroom, the beds were still "old fashioned", but I must say; it was one of the most comfortable nights I've ever spent in a hotel room. I can't say precisely what was it or what made it -... More

On our way back to the Netherlands, coming from Italy, we found this hotel in the middle of the city/village. The rooms are very nice, enough space to place luggage and all is very good. The restaurant at the hotel was very nice too, enough meals to choose from and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast served in... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as we were attending my cousins wedding. The check in process was straight forward, our rooms were ready even though we arrived before we were suppose to. Our room was of a lovely standard, bathroom was good too and a brilliant powerful shower. My only complaint with the room is that the pillows were... More

I've stayed here on business multiple times, a really good hotel with excellent friendly staff. Make no mistake this is very much out of the way, but easy to reach from the motorway. It's a small hotel and my rooms have always been quiet, clean and comfortable. The restaurant food is incredible, I've made my way through most of the... More

Stayed just one night in this nice hotel. It has been recently renovated (2010 I think) - and it's really nice. My room was a bit tiny - but was a single room - so didn't really need too much space. Bed and linen was very comfortable. TV with MANY MANY channels and a nice selection of foreign ones too.... More

I was extremely surprised to find such a beautiful hotel. It is located in the middle of nowhere but it is excellent. Very beautifully decorated rooms, well equipped. The restorant is nice, the staff is kind and speaks English. Highly recommended.

The Hotel Oschen is at the upper end of the stopover market, just off exit 61 of the A8. Rooms are large and comfortable and the food for dinner and breakfast is excellent. Our only problem was there didn't seem to anywhere to get a beer when we arrived about 5.00, the restaurant and bar were both shut so I... More

Staff was friendly and efficient, hotel rooms clean and spacious. Not a hotel where one would pass the holidays, but very good for a single night passing through (both business and pleasure). One slight problem might be the new rooms: they are a bit noisy and you can hear what they are saying in the room next-door.
