It is a fabulous property in a fabulous setting. Although we had a very warm welcome we were not told about the services the hotel offered, or even where breakfast would be served (though the peculiar key arrangement was well explained). As it turns out there is a private cinema you can use. There didn't seem to be an option to have a quite drink inside so we took ourselves off to a much less pretty but much more hospitable bar-come-resturant five minutes' walk up the road. Turned out that at least one other guest from the hotel did the same. If it hadn't been tipping it down with rain we would have walked into Konstanz to see what was on offer there. Our room was all right but not special. It was very hot, but to have the window open (as it had been when we arrived) meant there was no peace: given the apparent tranquility of the location it was very noisy at the side of the hotel. (Of the 11 hotels we used over our holiday this is the only one we had a bad night's sleep because of noise and the room being uncomfortably hot.) The sink in the bathroom was so large that the door could only half open: while the designer basin may be great in a large bathroom it was totally impractical in the tiny en suite and made the whole bathroom unworkable for two people. Ironically the basin had two halves (a his and hers) but one half couldn't be used because of the door and the side that could be used had an enormous crack in it. Breakfast was all about presentation but the service wasn't great: when items ran out they weren't replenished without you asking, and without you feeling that it was perhaps a bit of an imposition... though coffee had been served cheerfully. The room and whole hotel was spotlessly clean and endearingly quirky but on balance we didn't think it offered good value for money or live up to expectation. Hard to whole-heartedly recommend but certainly wouldn't say to avoid
