We booked the hotel as a stopover to a long European Tour. Close to the main highway it is easy accessible in a very characteristic German village. Gas station and super markets are near by. The hotel has many rooms and it is well maintaned by the family who runs it for centuries. The room we took was spacious, well... More

In fact everything I would expect from a hotel. What I didn't expect though was to effectively pay for the room twice..! I'll explain.... I made... More

Nice hotel in the village Merklingen but near the freeway. We stayed on our way back from Austria. Room was clean and good beds, breakfast buffet nice. Friendly frontdesk staff. Good price/quality. Only problem: low ceiling in bath/shower and an open lamp above the bath

No nonsense hotel, decent room. Have been here before and will probably stay again. Breakfast is very good. The only negative point is the bar, where smoking is allowed and the smell is awful. Is close to the highway but you don't hear any sound. It has a good restaurant where you can have parties for groups.

Stayed here 2 days as a Legoland stopover visit on the way home from Italy. Extremely friendly staff and a great restaurant. Value for money all the way. Also a great buffet breakfast is included. Very convenient to both Legoland and the outlet shops at Metzingen. Highly recommended.

We spent one night in the hotel on our long trip & it was great. Our room was renovated with a new bathroom, the beds were still "old fashioned", but I must say; it was one of the most comfortable nights I've ever spent in a hotel room. I can't say precisely what was it or what made it -... More

On our way back to the Netherlands, coming from Italy, we found this hotel in the middle of the city/village. The rooms are very nice, enough space to place luggage and all is very good.

I've stayed here on business multiple times, a really good hotel with excellent friendly staff. Make no mistake this is very much out of the way, but easy to reach from the motorway. It's a small hotel and my rooms have always been quiet, clean and comfortable. The restaurant food is incredible, I've made my way through most of the... More
