we had a very pleasant stay in a very nice hotel in a beautiful town.
A little note: breakfast facilities need some re-think in my opinion:
- more space (shared tables with other guests is not ideal),
(- a bit more variety)
- most of all: more staff is needed! the staff present (1 or 2 ladies) could not possibly assure the comfort of the guests and appeared totally overworked. this led for example that coffee requested on entering was served at the end of breakfast.
We stayed for three nights and the hotel is perfect located to explore Bodensee! Friendly staff, nice room and a heartily breakfast buffet.
On the plus side it is a fine old hotel in a good location. The rooms are well kept. Breakfast was good.
On the minus side reception seemed to be overwhelmed and under staffed. Because they had so much work the reception staff were not friendly. In the evening the restaurant was closed without explanation.
Expect the restaurant to be open more days/hours than it seemed to be.
We were made very welcome from the time we checked in. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The suggestion about taking a boat over to Konstanz and then bus to Mainau Insel suited us better than our original plans.
