    The room and bed were comfortable. A bit snug, but suited us fine for our 1 night spay between the black forest and Munich. The breakfast was very nice and the owner/manager was a delight. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. Walking distance to that lake and lots of great restaurants.

    The hotel is not staffed at night. We arrived back from Friedrichshafen at about 9.30 pm, but could not enter the Hotel. Entry is by keypad code and lock release. We are engineers and we could not get the door to open. Next door neighbour also tried and failed. Total 15 attempts. The hotel MUST change this system. Hotel staff on the phone were unhelpful.

    Nice hotel in a very quiet location, on the outskirts of Friedrichshafen.

    Directions to property through Booking.com lead to front of property which has a locked gate so you can't get in for parking. Parking is in next street behind the property. At night you have to use a code to get in. We came back from dinner at 8.15 and the code would not work. We tried 7 times, knocked but no one came, eventually on the 8th time it worked. Room tiny. Couldn't put 2 bags on floor as no room.

    Immaculately clean place. Breakfast nice. Lovely building.

    Room a bit dated, in need of modernising perhaps. No kettle, tea or coffee. Our room was next to the main road, so was noisy from early morning if you had the window open - there is no air conditioning. En-suite was a partitioned-off corner with a 'Saniflo' unit (which was noisy) for the toilet and drains.

    Friendly welcome, good sized comfortable room. Ours had a small balcony with a couple of seats, which might have had a lake view if it wasn't for the trees in the way. A few minutes drive from the town centre, where there are lots of places to eat and drink, and go on boat trips etc. Good breakfast.

    I asked for a downstairs room, they didn't contact me to say it was impossible and in fact there were steps to the front door as well as difficult stairs with only 1 handrail I understand the building may not be suitable but no communication to my request and there fore too late to cancel and find different accomodation more suitable. Ruined my holiday. All the bedding was nylon, not good in the heat...which it was in the small room.

    I would not suggest this place to anybody. Zero value for money. The lady owner of the hotel treats us very badly: no kindness and no customer care at all. We asked in the reservation a baby bed and we did not find. She argued very badly giving us the responsibilities rather than finding a solution. She asked us to pay more because she gave a bigger room without any place for the baby sinceour bed were separated. Awful! It's not worth a penny to spend in that place!
