“Pretty but not great hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2006

This hotel is ideally located for travellers who want to explore the walking trails of the Black Forest. The scenery is amazing. However, on a bus from the train station it's the very last stop and a long journey. If you don't have a car, you're reliant on public transport to get in and out of the town. The hotel is quite charming, but the rooms may not be to everyone's tastes as they are very old-fashioned. The shower is handheld, attached to the bath, not at all modern! Our room had a balcony, which had fantastic views, although all the windows had to be shut at night to keep out the thousands of insects (very warm room at night!). There were no shops near the hotel, and no room service or bar which meant going into town and stocking up everyday (not good if you arrive on a Sunday and everything's shut til Tuesday!). The worst part of our stay was the dinner we had at the hotel. It took about 45minutes for our order to be taken; the service was ridiculously slow, the food a disgrace, things left off our order and when we eventually got the bill, I almost fainted with the price! I wouldn't stay again and I wouldn't be in a hurry to recommend this hotel.

Google Translation
Das Hotel war von Ende 2010 bis Juni 2011 komplett geschlossen.

Intensivst haben wir an der vollständigen Sanierung und Renovierung unseres Hauses gearbeitet. Neue Besitzer, neues Personal, neue Hotelbar, neues Gartenkonzept samt hauseigener Minigolfanlage- das alles ist der aktuelle Stand. Zudem bieten wir Ihnen Shuttleservice an. (Bahnhof/Flughafen/Innenstadt)

Jedoch sind wir noch nicht fertig:
Ab September 2011 haben wir einen Spa-Raum (Mit Massage-, und Beautytreatmentangeboten), Fitnessraum, sowie Familienzimmer, Appartments mit Küche, Suiten und Romantikzimmer.

Das ist der aktuelle Stand unseres Hotels. Bewertungen vor 2011 nehmen wir selbstverständlich zur Kenntnis und danken Ihnen, für ihre Kritik, die wir als Antrieb sehen uns stetig zu verbessern.

Jedoch müssen wir darauf hinweisen, dass sie einfach "aus einer vergangenen Episode" stammen und daher nicht aktuell und zutreffend sind.
