    The TV was outplugged behind a heavy furniture. Isn't the staff supposed to check that the TV works? The same applied to the minibar. The breakfast was a real mess! The dedicated area is far too small. The size of the glasses are so tiny that it is worth a look!!

    The location is perfect, the spa is huge, rooms are very confortable.

    The main dish at dinner at both hotel's restaurant were average - we expected much better quality given the 4 star hotel ... But It was good value for that price

    It is right next to the lake and the beginning of many tracks ; the spa was pretty good ( I love the warm beds ); dog friendly - food/ water for the dogs at the reception and dog shower in the garage ; soft pillows , Italian restaurant had pretty delicious appetizers ; breakfast buffet had big variety of food

    The evening buffet menu in the hotel restaurant was good, but overpriced. Wine recommendation did not match the food. Would recommend eating out in one of the restaurants in the vicinity (all walking distance).

    Type of rooms/pictures are not accurate ones from Booking.com to the one the hotel has. Hotel was great in allocating the right room after we explained the situation, so apart from a slight delay in the room allocation we had no complaints.

    We had reserved 2 rooms and then our family from USA did not make their flights due to issues. The hotel would not work with us on refunding their money back. We tried several times to call and nobody answered so we could not get a hold of anybody until we arrived at the hotel. That was very disappointing.!

    The staff were very helpful, rooms beautiful, breakfast wonderful, internet services best we have had in Germany so far! Thank you!
