    Although the hotel is only 2kms from the Vennbahn cycle route, it is a very steep climb - be warned. It's worth the effort though.

    We had a very friendly welcome from the owner. The accommodation was actually in a separate house about 150 metres away. A three course evening meal was available for residents at a very reasonable price. The breakfast was excellent, and you could make up a packed lunch - tin foil provided. There are lots of walking routes into the Hoches Venn.

    You can book dinner with them, it is excellent but it is served at 6pm with no menu. Again it was excellent but would be nice to make reservations for different times.

    Excellent dinner and breakfast. Located about 5km from Monschau without the parking problems that you experience in Monschau.

    Only thing to fault was the mattresses as a little bumpy and bed didn’t seem stable. The steps up to the rooms are also very steep.

    Breakfast- the omelette was very very dry. Probably was old, made one day earlier. To check-in, you need to call in first and its difficult to make yourself understood because the person who answered didn't know any English. The breakfast was too far from the room. You need to go outside in order to reach the restaurant. The heater in the bathroom (room no.5) was not working properly and it was pretty cold in it. They can not offer you dinner until late November so pay attention if you are booking a room with half board included, ask if the restaurant will be open during your stay.

    Quiet location, very clean, spacious room, close to Monschau (by car, only 8minutes drive), free parking, free wi-fi.

    Might be too quiet, as this guesthouse is situated in the small village among other residential houses. Can only be reached by car.

    The stuff was super friendly as well as food (we took half pension). Especially breakfast was just great. A lot of people living nearby came to eat there. The prices on the menu are very low compared to Monschau town which is 3 km away. The room was small but cosy and just enough for our 2-night stay.

    We'd booked 3 rooms together and one couple's room was in another building 150m or so up the road. The hotel only takes cash, no credit card facility, which Booking.com didn't inform us about which then made us very short of cash for rest of trip.
