    The “only thing” was, no coffee maker in the room. But that’s not a negative. Maybe, something they will do in the future

    Loved everything! Jennifer met us so friendly. The breakfast buffet was full of food I grew up on, being part German. The resturaunt was 5⭐️

    The receptionist said if we wanted to eat in the restaurant the latest we could eat was 7.00 pm. So that didn't leave much time to spend in the pool When we got to the restaurant the service was extremely slow and there were plenty of empty tables so we could have stayed in the pool for much longer.

    A good selection for breakfast. A lovely swimming pool with baskets in the room containing towels, dressing gowns and slippers to go to the pool in. Just managed to park our car in the underground car park before a thunder storm.

    "Traube am see" is not "am see". Quite far from the sea, no view of the sea. Too expensive for the quality of facilities. Paying 150 euro/night/room is not elegant to be informed that you have to pay 2 euro for sleepers.

    The photos shown online were inaccurate. They only have half of the hotel refurbished and elected to show those photos. My room was from the 90's which was extremely outdated. If I would have known these rooms exsisted I would not have booked this hotel or paid extra for a nice room.

    It's not the hotel's fault, of course, but traffic down the east coast of the Bodensee is just awful. It took 30+ minutes just to go a couple miles down the road to Friedrichshafen town center. Likewise to get to the expo Messe.

    Sufficient parking - no fighting for a space after a long day at the Messe. The food and ambiance at the associated restaurant were great. You get a choice of modern or traditional décor and excellent regional and seasonal specialties.

    We had 3 rooms and 1 room had no air-con, which was disappointing in the glorious weather. There was only 1 very thin pillow in each room, which was insufficient.

    Really nicely situated, though the main road was busy and often jammed. The hotel was in 2 halves, divided by a side road. The food was very good. We would stay again.
