You may ask having read all the previous reviews whether this place can be that good. The simple answer is yes and then some. Rather than waste time and space by repeating previous eulogies, please allow me to focus on the following topics.
The biggest issue is finding the entrance - up a steep slope, turn right and right again - large green gate ahead of you marks the entrance or side gate up the track. If, on the main road into Burgau, you pass the Pig's Head, you have gone too far.
Secondly, we stayed in the Garden Room - magnificent accommodation. Hilde, the owner, showed us the Tower Room upstairs with its expansive terrace - even better!
Finally, Hilde has devised a most cunning plan to encourage guests to mingle. Breakfast is served on the terrace at a large table with six settings. The previous week, my wife and I had stayed in a highly-rated hotel further east along the coast. Breakfast was taken in a large room holding perhaps one hundred guests. I remarked that most people engaged with partners and no one else. Chez Hilde, breakfast is served at a communal table ensuring, nay encouraging, open discussion. We stayed for one week - during that time we broke fast in holiday small-talk with new-found friends from Philadelphia, St.Petersburg, Liepzig and Amsterdam. It was an excellent and enjoyable start to the day.
As for the other things you may wish to learn about, please read the previous reviews - they are all true. In fact, I believe the previous reviewer from Amsterdam was being slightly mean-spirited in offering only ten out of ten.
If you seek total relaxation in very pleasant and comfortable surroundings, this is the place for you. You have my word - at the end of your stay, you will wish you had booked longer!
