My wife and I stayed here whilst on a National Holidays Christmas Markets 5 day break.
It's quite difficult to be fair with this review, a main factor has to be that the management has to balance your stay on a very tight budget, I'm sure that the hotel get very little from the tour operator.
The hotel is a really old converted monastery, quite shabby and must cost a fortune for heating etc. Our room was in an annex building, quite small, and other than the toilet and shower there were no facilities at all! Two single beds pushed together with a strange duvet that only just covered you! It was warm enough though. It was almost impossible to get the shower to give a warm water flow. No shower mat! My wife slipped but luckily she was not hurt.
All meals are very basic, and your given only just enough to keep you alive! A few "local" drinks were free on our trip, between 8:30 and 11:00pm. We discovered that the free wine was from Lidl for 1.99 euros. The Lidl store is 100 metres down the road from the hotel.
The evening entertainment was from a weird bloke, a cross between Demis Rousos and Yabba the Hut! The music was, depending on your taste, dreadful!!! You know what I mean ... Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree, Alice, Save all your kisses for me! need I go on? He sang all songs in a deadpan fashion!
We couldn't stand it!!! So we sat in the freezing cold entrance lobby and did quizzes on our iPad with our coats on! There was a constant flow of tabbers in and out of the entrance door, going outside to smoke, they might as well have just smoked in the lobby because it stunk of cigarettes!
It sounds awful doesn't it? But, if you smoke ( and nearly all on this trip did ), and you like the songs, you could be in heaven!
The staff were nice enough unless someone had a complaint Then it was the cold shoulder treatment.
They say in life " you get what you pay for " ..... in this case, never a truer word said!
