“Mixed experience at the Gasthof zur Post”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

This relatively new hotel in the village of Donaustauf near Regensburg is smart, clean and well equipped. There is a good breakfast buffet for only EURO 5 per person per night which was very good value.
The only reservations we had were with the room we had on the third floor in the roof of the hotel. The room was quite small comapred to many German hotel rooms with a steeply sloping ceiling on one side and only one comfortable chair to sit in. There were a number of over-complicated technical features that did not work properly - such as the light switches - and a frosted glass door to the bathroom which made it feel less than private. There was quite a lot of noise from other rooms as well and the guest room doors had a habit of slamming shut rather than closing gently.
These are not major points but overall the feeling was that the place had been over-designed and could have been more successful with less technology.

Reviewed 8 July 2011

We stopped here for one night whilst cycling along the Danube cycleway. The room was large and the facilities good. The retaurant was popular and the food was excellent and well presented. However, I found the hotel expensive compared to others we had used along the cycleway and struggled to find the extra 'value added' to justify the price.
Most irritating was one member of the reception team who regarded any interruption of her clerical tasks as most unwelcome, particularly if your spoken German was not excellent. Some customer service training needed there, or a change of attitude.

Reviewed 25 November 2010

We found it a bit hard to find, as the address is for the front door that almost nobody uses: the main entrance is around the back, from the village parking area, which isn't obvious when you arrive.

All the same we got a nice large room, in a semi-extension at the back, entered by a separate door. The main restaurant was closed (for no obvious reason), but we got a good meal in the cafe/bar (I suspect the menu is the same). It was very crowded, but the service was good. Breakfast was also good.
