“Good location - poor rooms”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

The location is very good, as it's right next to the harbour, also the breakfast was delicious and u get lots of scrummy croissants etc. However, this is it.

Bad first impression - no parking spaces left, so I had to go inside in the rain and then outside again to repark the car.
It really smells inside of stale wee...........very nice - NOT!
The rooms are VERY dated and not spotlessly clean. Didn't have a shower as I just couldn't be bothered to even look at it. The shower curtain is sooo old too.........! Too expensive for what u get! Only good if u go on a boat trip and don't wanna go home afterwards. Otherwise - go home or choose a different hotel. Payment - only cash! No cards accepted.

This hotel was one of the worst I stayed in during a four week visit to Switzerland and Germany. I arrived in Romanshorn after a wonderful night in a charming hotel at Staat, near Rorschach, further down Lake Constance.

The Hotel Anker cost the same for vastly inferior accommodation. The hotel is opposite the noisy railway station, not that I can complain about that. But the Anker's value for money was very poor.

My room was tiny and the bathroom so small I could not open the door fully to enter it. It banged on the hand basin. I had to squeeze in and close it from the inside.

Breakfast was one of the worst I had on my holiday. None of the usual cold meats, just bread and jam and a pot of coffee, and a bowl of bruised apples.

When I arrived, I asked the landlord if there was internet access. No, he said, and waved vaguely down the main street to an internet cafe. Twenty minutes later I was back, seeking better directions. The station cafe had Wifi, he said. However, I could not get it to work.
