The Old Hatchery was one option to stay in Underberg area. Most of the accomodations were cheap and looked like that as well. Some of them, good looking - very expensive and for 3 nights not a good choise.
We found the Old Hatchery and it looked quite nice, recommondations high as well. Price per room/night attractive as well. We thought we arrive around 5 p.m., but we didn´t . Check - In closes at 6, and we came around 11 p.m. due to problems with our car, we broke down 100 km before Underberg. The host was so friendly and she watied for us.
The whole stuff is really nice and we enjoyed staying there. Only the rooms were a little bit cold during the night and we needed lots of blankets due to poor heating. BUT: great stay and nice rooms. Big rooms and free WLAN.
The whole area looks great around the Old Hatchery!
