눉The only thing we didn't like about this place was their wi-fi
situation. They had two different wi-fi solutions: Kabel Deutschland and
something else called maxspot. On the main floor (and presumably
upstairs), the Kabel Deutschland signal strength was great. However, our
downstairs room couldn't maintain a connection to this network long
enough to even log on. I'm guessing this is why they also had
maxspot, which had a very strong signal in our downstairs room. The only
thing about maxspot is that in order to use it, you first have to create
a user id, and as part of that process, maxspot sends you an e-mail
which contains a link that you have to click. Once you do that, you can
connect and you're good to go. The thing is that you can't get
to your e-mail because you don't have a wi-fi connection yet! To get
around this, we all had to go upstairs to the lobby, connect via Kabel
Deutschland, click that link in the e-mail, and then we could go back
downstairs and connect to maxspot. Very annoying!
Now, to be fair, we should have said something to the owners right up front, but we didn't want to sound like whining Americans, so we waited until we were checking out, at which time I mentioned it to the owner. He said that he wished we would have mentioned it sooner to him, because he had a little device that he could have given us that we could have plugged into the wall in our room, which would have boosted the Kabel Deutschland signal strength and we would have been fine. I wish we had known... Anyway, he explained that having a general-use wi-fi system, to which all the guests connect via a single user ID, is a risk for him, because if someone accesses something illegal, he's the one that would get into trouble, because there'd be no way of knowing exactly which guest did it. In any case, though, the bottom line is that the wi-fi situation was not what we're used to in the U.S.
눇This place is nice and clean. It's got a nice lake behind it. The
room we had (on the lower level) was more like a suite, with a
living/dining area up front, and the bedroom/bathroom in the
back. The couch converted into a single bed, which was very comfy.
The breakfast room was cheery, and there's a huge terrace overlooking the lake right outside the breakfast room (although it was too rainy and cold to go out there while we were there, which is too bad, because it would have been nice). The breakfast was pretty standard for Germany. The waitress who took care of breakfast was very nice to us.
