    Superb

    Nice, quiet location on the outskirts of the city - next to some woods with great walking trails. The rooms were comfortable, although on the small side. Comfortable bed, and it was nice to have a work desk. Plenty of available outlets. The bathroom was also a bit small, but functional and clean/modern. I felt safe as a single traveller.

    The walls are a bit thin and I heard noise from my neighbors and in the hallway. Fortunately, everyone went to sleep at a normal hour and it wasn't a problem.

    Very good

    We liked the huge bedroom, room 45. a very big wardrobe with large mirrors and a sofa. The surrounding area was great for walks if the weather is dry. The hotel is situated in close proximity to Konstanze Centre and other attractions, Bregenz, St Gallen and Zurich. Also just 26 km away from Friederichshafen Airport (Ferry Crossing from Konstanze to Meersburg). The chamber maid was very helpful and had a pleasant nature.

    We definitely did not feel welcomed by the staff. The Receptionist even remain seated as we checked in. We were given a key to the adjacent building, having arrived in pouring rain, she did not even offer an umbrella. The breakfast room staff: Only the Blond lady was on top of her game, a friendly good morning each day and she even tried to have a conversation in English (although we both speak German). Other staff did not even bother to return our good morning greeting when we entered the breakfast room. So very un -Germanic! the staff looked tired and did not show any appreciation or joy for the work they chose to do.Such a pity! Worst of all, they even started cleaning while we sat and had our breakfast at 10:30 (breakfast closes). However I felt its' immensely rude to start wiping and mopping all around us while we were eating. Breakfast was OK. If your'e late (10:15), then you are lucky to get the left overs and boiled eggs are cold. The bathroom: had mildew in various places on the tiles and damp /mildew marks in three places on the ceiling (again so Un-Germanic) It was not possible to lower the shower, nor change the water stream which came out in Jets. the bedroom: the mattresses are way past it's expiry date. The beds are very low, and each time you move during the night, it creaked. For me with a lower back problem, extremely uncomfortable to have a restless sleep on a mattress which should have been exchanged 10 years ago. the continental pillows, was more like a dishcloth, completely worn and should have been renewed ages ago. The first night I used one of the sofa pillows for support. The next day I asked the chamber maid for an extra pillow. I might as well have placed my head on two dishcloths. WiFI: did not work on the phones, and on the lap-top it only functioned when you are in the main building.

    Exceptional

    The staff, the room, the super breakfast, everything :)

    The location is perfect for see-side stroll, Thermal-bad. But if you want to go out to the city, where they have so many nice restaurants, beware that the bus goes only once an hour.

    Friendly and helpful hotel staff to include breakfast buffet. Beautiful location with view of lake and next to indoor/outdoor pool center and wooded park.

    Lack of helpful and friendly service at co-located restaurant for dinner.

    A nice, friendy and decent hotel. Very Quiet. Nice walk(45 min.) to town along the shoreline of the Lake Constance, with excellent(free) bus service to Constance. Next door to the Thermal Baths. Very clean. Restaurant Okay, breakfast excellent.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is very quiet and nicely located, very close to Lake Constance. Some rooms have a view of the lake and the Alps. It is a well maintained and clean middle class hotel. It is a nice 30 minute walk, or 10-15 minute bus ride away from the history city center. The Boodensee-Therme and the Hörnle-Bad are just a very short walk away.

    The WLAN signal was rather weak in my room. I would love to have a croissant and maybe scambled eggs and bacon with the (otherwise very nice) breakfast.

    Superb

    The hotel was in a great loction with views of the Swiss mountains on a clear day. I was provided with a free bus pass for the duration of my stay, for bus links all around the local area. The bus took 5 mins to get into the town centre, and about 10 - 15 to get back. I was also provided with a 10% discount card for the spa and pool, about a 2 min walk from the hotel. The staff were welcoming, friendly and really helpful. My room was a single, and was clean and sufficient for my needs. Car parking was free. A basic cold buffet breakfast was provided daily.

    The wifi only worked in the main foyer area not in the hotel rooms which was disappointing. The hotel website advertised a guest laundry - this statement is not valid. Since the hotel is essentially a large guesthouse, there can be a lot of noise from the creaking staircases and doors banging in the corridors. I would have found tea making factilities in the room very useful - although staff were happy to provide hot water and a cup when asked!

    Exceptional

    Excellent value for the room but a bit expensive for the breakfast at 12.50 euro's per person! Lovely location, on the lakeside, near walks and the spa just down the road. The town was a 30 minute walk along the lake and well worth the visit.

    Very convenient for Konstanz on foot or by bike. Also right next to the swimming pool / sauna and beach.Peaceful in spite of that.

    Bar did not stock Gin & Tonic. Somewhat limited menu in the restaurant.
