We got a Groupon to stay here, so it was a great deal. Last time we were disappointed, so we were hoping for a better experience and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is almost 2000' high up in the Black Forest, and is set between two streets, so you may hike up and down stairs to get from your room to breakfast. It's worth it, though. The rooms were clean and spacious, with a full bathroom; cute, little balcony; comfortable beds, nice flat screen TV with (German) cable. Breakfast was great with plenty of healthy choices and some hot, not so healthy, choices, too. Dinner, at an extra cost, was also excellent. You also have to hike a few hundred meters to get to the spa area. It's worth it, being one of the few we've found in Germany where the whirlpool (not a Jacuzzi, but a currenty tub) is actually warm enough that you can sit in it without becoming hypothermic. There's also an small indoor swimming pool, cool sitting pool, room with chaise lounges for reading and relaxation, dry sauna, etc. For a fee, there's massages, hair salon, and other services. The surrounding area is full of hiking and biking trails and about 10 miles away is an area with lots of kingfishers (those cute little turquoise-blue diving birds). We also went on the free smoked ham "tour" but were disappointed to find it was a local farmer haranguing about cheap imports from Poland for 30 minutes, a quick look at two small closets with smoked meats hanging, and three tiny samples in their family store. The package also included free bus and train rides throughout the Black Forest, but we weren't there long enough to take advantage of that. Oh, and our room had really, nice, fast WiFi, but, strangely, the restaurant areas didn't.
