My 10 year old son and I arrived at Binz Railway Station in the rain - after a couple of wet days in Lubeck and a train journey involving three changes of train his spirits were down. However 5 minutes walk straight down from the station towards the sea, his spirits lifted when he saw our hotel for the next 4 nights.
Once we were into our room he was happier still. Although we had booked a room without a sea view, it was large with a separate sitting room area and much to my son's delight had two TVs. The room was very comfortable with a good shower room well stocked with toiletries. There were also towelling bathrobes and slippers - very useful for the spa area.
We had booked bed and breakfast - there was a very good choice at the breakfast buffet with both hot and cold food - fried eggs and omelettes individually cooked for you. We had evening meal on three nights - 25 Euro for two courses and a separate much cheaper children's menu. Food quality was high.
The spa area was a real plus factor - even though we were told off wearing swimsuits in the mixed sex steam and sauna areas - in Germany, people go naked, which can be hard if it is not part of your culture to do so. Nevertheless I did comply. The spa area also incorporated a reasonable size indoor swimming pool. I took advantage of the aquarobics class before breakfast and on each occasion, we did different exercises.
Although I do not speak German and all the other guests appeared to be German, this was not a problem. The reception staff were friendly and professional and spoke fluent English as did many of the other staff, (and guests).
The hotel's location is excellent for guests arriving without a car. It is a short walk from the railway station and bus stops. A tourist train which runs around Binz stops outside the next hotel - there is no charge as it is included in the 2 Euros 10 cents a day compulsory tourist tax which is added to the hotel bill. The hotel fronts onto the seafront promenade. The beach is long, clean and sandy.
Rugen is a very interesting island with plenty to do and good public transport. The hotel is an excellent base.
