My girlfriend and myself stayed at the Maximilian Guesthouse from 2nd to the 9th of February 2013. Rooms were clean enough. The beds were comfortable although I did have to put some slats back in one before even spending a night! And as we are a couple we would have appreciated a double duvet instead of two singles, which I found strange. Also a few toiletries would have been nice, not even a bar of soap.
Breakfast consisted of 2 rolls, slices of cheese and cold meats and jam. You got the option of a glass of orange juice or water and tea and coffee (but if you want a half decent cup take you own tea bags!) Also on alternate days there was a yogurt or boiled egg. I'm not saying that there was anything inherently wrong with the breakfast but by the 3rd day I was sick of it. I have stayed at other similarly priced guesthouses/B&Bs and had far more choice.
So the week on the snow was good, conditions were fantastic then on the last night as we were packing a bag knocked one of the bedside lamp shades and broke a small glass panel. As it was late I decided to sort it out with the owners in the morning. Unfortunately we overslept. I explained to them what had happened and that I was very sorry and that I was happy to pay for the damage. Before I was even told the cost her attitude changed. She started talking loudly in German to I guess her husband and disappeared upstairs to I guess look at the light. When she came down she shouted at me that it was going to be E25. Unfortunately I only had E5 on me and as my girlfriend was flying back to a different airport she has already been collected. I was told "you must pay, you must pay" repeatedly. To which I kept saying I was happy to pay but my bus was coming in 10 minutes and that wasn't time for me to walk to the ATM and get back in time. Their body language was starting to worry me. I know this to be true as we had to walk past it on the way to ski every morning! Then his son arrived and I got him to drive me down to get some money. For this I am very grateful after reading what he did to another woman who had lost her key and didn't have the money on her the last morning to pay for a new one.
I just couldn't believe how rude they were and the anger they showed. I'm sure any money owed could easily have been collected through Crystal as they have all payment details.
