We enjoyed our stay completely. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel and rooms are modern, and our room (Number 3) was quite large with a marble bathroom with a shower and a separate over-sized bathtub. Our room was cool even though the days were quite hot. The ground level rooms have doors leading out to a pleasant garden. An extensive breakfast buffet is included with the usual cheeses, breads, juices etc. plus salmon (but no hot alternatives). We ate three nights at the restaurant which offers well-prepared regional specialties. The hotel also houses a large equestrian facility plus many small farm animals as well as a playground which will please small children. From the license plate designations of the cars at the restaurant we concluded that the zum Sussen Grund is a favorite destination for residents from throughout the region.
Note that the zum Sussen Grund is in a remote location a few miles outside of (and a few hundred meters above) Albstadt. Our cellphone reception was sporadic. Unfortunately, we could not make a connection with the hotel internet. There is bus stop a few hundred meters on a main road 200 yards away but the hotel is probably best reached by car. On the other hand the countryside is very pretty and the hotel is at the nexus of a large number of excellent well-marked hiking trails. Albstadt itself did not seem very interesting, but there are many other historical and cultural attractions nearby.
