The Weintal was an OK place to stay. I didn't pay enough attention when I booked, so rather than getting the beautiful cosy resort I was expecting we got something like a motor lodge. Oh well. It wasn't very beautiful.
My main concern was that there be wifi in the rooms, as my wife needed to be in contact with her office during our stay, and in that I was disappointed. There was indeed wifi in our room, if you stood in the doorway. If you sat in a chair or on the bed there was no service. That meant, for example, that email couldn't arrive unless you took your laptop out of the room.
We investigated and this was because the wifi service comes from a satellite dish on the roof of the office, and its strength is limited. Staff seemed somewhat bewildered that we would expect to actually have wifi in the room because the web site says there's wifi in the room, when plainly THEY couldn't do anything with the satellite dish. They were happy to let us sit near the office to get a better signal, but I'm still left with the feeling that I didn't get what I wanted from this hotel. If our room had been further from the office we would have had no signal at all.
This is a common problem in hotels, and it will remain a problem until hotels get their act together and take some responsibility for providing the services that customers need and expect. I won't be returning to the Weintal (well, maybe for dinner, the restaurant was OK) as they are not able to provide the facilities I need.
