    Classic hotel with very good size rooms, immaculately clean, very comfortable beds and bathrooms with large shower cubicles. Extremely peaceful location and a restaurant with superb food. Room rates were excellent value, but restaurant prices were higher but still value for money.

    Though the hotel is about 7 kilometers away from the Hauptbahnhof, the travel won't be a problem if you take it is the tram and then the bus to the hotel. More importantly, the tranquility of the surroundings and the beauty of the scenic village were a pleasant surprise to me. I enjoyed walking there and the stay at the hotel. The hotel put some very fresh fruit and cookies on a table at the entrance for the guests to eat for free--a very warm greeting.

    Nothing, really.

    The hotel owner was extremely kind, friendly and helpful. The room was lovely (large and airy) with a balcony overlooking the surrounding hills. The hotel restaurant, which was just across the road, was atmospheric and the food was very good. Breakfast was in the little conservatory area in the main building and was tasty and satisfying. Overall, this is a family run German hotel where the owners take pride in offering guests a comfortable and pleasant stay. We would happily stay in the hotel again.

    This is an excellent place to stay. This was our third stay and we will definitely be back. Staff are very friendly and helpful despite the language barrier (we don't speak German). The room is spacious and comfortable, the restaurant is exceptional and the breakfast is fresh and very generous.

    Noisy at night on a summer weekend.

    I stayed here on the night of Germany playing in a football completion. Some old men (locals, not guests) continued talking loudly in the hotel garden long into the night - nobody at hotel bothered to move them on. So a rather disturbed night (closing the windows was not an option in hot summer). This undid all the goodwill gained by the very friendly hotel/restaurant staff.

    Comfortable clean room. Hotel were able to provide locked garage for my Harley motorbike overnight - foc.

    Distance from Freiberg and lack of close alternative eating options.

    Spacious room. Located in village quite distant from Freiberg and seemly little else apart from an associated restaurant in the village. Very quiet location if that is what you are seeking.

    I honestly could not come up with a negative of any kind. I'll leave that to others.

    For us this hotel was perfect from the start and remained that way for our stay. The parking was easy and convenient. The room had a nice balcony overlooking a little stone grotto. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the setting also very quiet. We had lunch and dinner in the gasthaus and there the food was and setting was wonderful offered with attentive friendly service. The restaurant was quite full, always a good sign, so book ahead. We ate our breakfast in a delightful atruim and it too was excellent. We are seasoned travelers and to us this hotel gave us far better value than expected. We are non-German speaking but with a little smiling and good humor its easy to get through the language barrier. Our waitress in the evening spoke perfect English for us however. boutique
