Hotel Jakob

Reviewed April 30, 2013

Stayed in this great little hotel on a short business trip and it Is excellent. The rooms are large, very clean with a great hot shower. I had an evening meal which was beautiful and the breakfast also really tasty and you can have as much as you wish. Of course I had to try the local beer and again much better than the dross served in England. I must say a word about the two young ladies on duty, they were super efficient, friendly and nothing too much trouble for them. Didn't have time to spend any time in the lovely little town but it looked like a lovely quiet place and I would love to return for a short holiday to spend a little more time there. Well done to all at the Hotel Jakob and thank you for your hospitality

This is an excellent business hotel. Food is lovely, good location, big rooms and strong WiFi signal.

The staff all speak perfect english and are very friendly & efficient. Ask for a suite - the newly refurbished ones are big and well appointed

Highly recommended.

I have been here for a short business trip. Fantastic location, my room had a terrace over a garden, I could appreciate the silence and the peace of the sorrounding nature.
I also had the chance to stay at the hotel restaurant where I had a fantastic dinner with young and fresh dishes, very tasty vegetables (I've appreciated the broccoli and almond combination) and meat. Also the dessert was nice. I had also the chance to taste the local white wine, really not bad. In the morning after, I've had a full and abundant breakfast.
Many thanks to the staff people, smiling and kind.
A pity I couldn't try the relax area.
Very suggested for a business trip and, why not, for a romantic escape :)

I've spent 2 weeks at this place and for me it feels like a home away from home. the location is great, walking/running trails right out the front door. The staff is awesome and the prices are good the restaurant is great. If I travel in this area again I will make a point to stay here

Ladies and gentlemen,We would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief history and some information about our hotel.In 1970, as young newlyweds, we took over the small family business.It was a restaurant called “Ratsstube” which had previously been excellently run by, Leni Thomas, our mother.
