“No running water and no lavatories! Plenty of alternatives a few metres away.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We stopped here for afternoon tea/beer/ice cream before driving back to Austria. The garden is nice but we were staggered to be told that we could not have a glass of water with coffee or ice cream but had to order it by the bottle. Coming form Vienna where coffee is always served with water and where Leitungswasser is freely available, we were amazed by this Bayerisch impudence! Of course we understand that if you run a café you do not want people to turn up and just drink free water, but those of us used to a more civilised culture - and only 30 minutes drive away, are used to having water served free. Mineral water stored in plastic bottles in hot countries is in my view a health hazard. We then discovered the toilets were closed - so maybe they really did have no running water - in which case what about health and safety? We were directed to use a WC in the nearby hotel block. But overall as a piece of PR we thought the message was pretty clear - arrogant - inflexible and typical of a tourist trap. By the way the ice cream was mass-produced stuff, quite good but nothing special. Espresso (served without a glass of water was OK). I would not go back there - there are some lovely places further along the lakeside and we had just had a great lunch with great service on the island. A relief though to cross the border again and return to Austrian hospitality!

“The half board option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

We had the half board option which was economical. The food was fine although the waiter service was a bit lacklustre. The table was a bit sticky which in the days of smartphones isn't what you want.
