“Overnight hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Hotel is next to the motorway. Clean hotel, excellent breakfast. Bus stop nearby, a visit to Ulm is recommended. Hotel is a good choice to stay overnight when you travel between Belgium (or neigborhood) and Austria/North Italy.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

This hotel is a fairly good overnight stop being close to the motorway linking eastern France with Munich, the Brenner Pass and Italy. I have stayed here for a couple of years en route to the Italian ski resorts in the Dolomites and find it gives good value for money. The chief advantage is its location for a one night stop near the motorway but it could be used as a moderately priced hotel for an extended visit to the historic city of Ulm if you don’t mind staying outside the city itself. The hotel also possesses a large car park.
The hotel is comfortable – particularly the beds, the rooms are spotlessly clean, and there is a good restaurant open until very late in the evening. It is possible to get a full blown meal here up until 10 in the evening. There are some nice meat and fish dishes but the portions are huge. The restaurant specialises in fish dishes as most of the fish is farmed on the premises. The beers are particularly good. Restaurant prices are quite reasonable.
Staff are very helpful and friendly and the whole place is run with typical German efficiency.
Wi-Fi is available free of charge and works very well in all parts of the hotel.
Breakfasts are not great and are just about acceptable. There is a tendency for the hot dishes to be overcooked. The scrambled eggs are like leather and the boiled eggs like bullets. The coffee is very weak and unpleasant. There are some good cheeses though and a good selection of the usual cold meats, cereals, jams and bread. The breads are particularly good.
Overall the hotel is to be recommended for its location and cleanliness and gives good value for money.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2008

For starters, the good things. The restaurant is really excellent.
I had the Swabian Ravioli. My wife had the trout (forelle). For some
reason the breakfast is in a dark and crowded room near the kitchen and not in the dining room next door. The food is OK.

Nothing at all wrong with the room. Clean. Good bed. The problem
is the Church around the corner has a bell which sounds on the
quarter hour all night long. With no AC in the place you have no
choice but to open the window. There is also some noise associated with the parking lot (free) which is in the rear of the
hotel. Patrons at the sports bar downstairs exit throughout
the night.

Ulm is an interesting city and the downtown is well worth a visit.
WWII buffs may be interested in visiting the spot where the Gestapo forced Fieldmarshall Erwin Rommel to take his own life or face humiliation for not informing on those who wished to kill Hitler. The roadside shrine along with his home and grave are in nearby Herrlingen.

  • Liked — Dinner at the restaurant.
  • Disliked — The noise.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2007

This place is a bit out of date and in need of a good face lift, but it was one of the cleanest places that I have ever stayed. The bed was really comfortable as well. I don't think I would want to stay here more than a night or 2, but it was a good place to stop and grab some zzzz's on our journey back to England from Austria. Final thoughs - Decent value for money, but nothing much in the area to see or do. The breakfast was okay, but pretty average. It filled a hole though.

  • Liked — It was very clean and the bed was comfortable.
  • Disliked — The location - there wasn't much to see or do.
