This hotel is about 15-20mins drive from the centre of Kiel. It's ideal if you're driving and want to avoid going into the city itself. A bus-stop for Kiel is a couple of minutes walk up the road. Yes, the hotel is opposite a boatyard but you do get a view across the estuary. Just don't expect a beach nearby! The local shops are about a 10min walk away and has a selection fo shops for browsing and several supermarkets if you are looking to stock up. You might have to look further afield if you're expecting some form of night-life or the pub / club scene!
To the hotel itself - it's well maintained and the rooms nicely decorated. Bed a little firm but that was okay by me. No safes / aircon. Just one English TV channel. Note - the floors are connected by very steep stairs - if you think you may have problems lifting a suitcase up them, I recommend that you ask for something lower or a helping hand - no lifts! I had a room with a view acroos the estuary - the rear rooms give you a view of the car park (being expanded as I left).
Staff universally friendly and helpful. English spoken / English menus available. The big secret of this hotel is that it's restaurant if Michelin-rated. I ate there every evening during and I must say that the food was some of the best I have tasted in Germany. Good portions and excellent desserts as well! There were a couple of functions taking place whislt I was there so clearly this place has a good local reputation. Breakfast was perfectly adequate and enough to set you up for the day.
In conclusion, if you are looking for somewhere to break your journery, or as a base to explore Kiel / Laboe, this hotel comes highly recommended. Many thanks to the staff for an enjoyable stay!
