This is my second stay in good ol' cuxhaven. This BW property is a standard hotel but has the "best" restaurant in town for lunch and dinner. I did not partake as looking at the menu, it was quite expensive and per some of the locals, service is really slow.
Staff- The hotel front desk staff was always a little distracted in the back room playing minesweeper or internet surfing i suppose. The one older lady who works the evening wasnt able to accomodate me switching from a room directly next door to a co-worker becuase they are fully booked in 3 days. i was trying to figure out how far in advance they assign rooms and how they cant make that switch, but what ever.
Ambiance - I found it interesting that prominently displayed among their local attractions books and other magazine were two Playboys. Not sure what that was about.
Room - The room was a little small and the shower was small compared to a larger franchise but at 90 euros a night, what can you expect. I had a single bed, it was a single bed. kinda comfortable, but quickly became uncomfortable. shower was hot and bathroom while a little tight, had a shaving mirror and hairdryer which were nice. room was fairly clean as well. Room temperature control was a little different as there isnt really a thermostat. you open the patio window if you want fresh air. thankfully it was a little chilly at night so not many insects were out. internet while sometimes fast, dropped an awful lot making it difficult to continue working or doing video chats back home.
Breakfast - breakfast was decent was several baked breads, waffles, and pre-made pancakes. several jams and jellies to choose from along with fresh fruit some. also have some hot food items (bacon, eggs, baked beans) along with a cold cut meat plate that has some options. several cheese options. Coffee was pretty good though. Cereals and juices was also there.
All in all a good basic hotel for Cuxhaven with some food kinda near by if you dont mind walking down dark streets to get to some.
