Having finished the “Romantic Road” we travelled across the Deutsche Alpenstrasse to Lake Constance and the fifth hotel on our driving tour. We had opted to stay outside of Lindau as it was the weekend and that was a good move as the traffic was appalling! The location of Seeblick on the hillside with (just) a view of Lake Constance (with rooftops and pylons) was the main reason for booking, along with our three criteria – free parking, breakfast and wifi - and the only other saving grace for this place was the excellent (but not cheap) meal we had in the restaurant. On arrival the restaurant was closed for lunch (until 5) and there isn’t much in the locality but the meal was worth waiting for. The room was a good size but sparsely furnished with a small table and chairs squeezed into the space opposite the “bathroom” with bottles of water provided. There was no clock, phone, pen, pad, or tea making and throughout the building there are silly little 1” steps to trip you up and the balcony was shared with the next room. The view was good but the downside of that was the traffic noise from the road. There is ample free parking at the front and back of the hotel but due to the steps everywhere it would not be a good hotel for anyone with more than a slight walking disability. The hot water took AGES to come through – so long we went and asked if it had been turned off! The shower was absolutely uncontrollable! Kept going hot and cold and falling off the wall – nightmare! The towels were small and hard – we have thrown out better. “Bathroom” had a sliding door to save space (!) and measured 101 x122cm (not including shower) so when on the loo your knees are under the basin – the wardrobe was almost as big. Have had bigger on a cross channel ferry! We had NONE of the alleged free wifi ALL weekend as there was something wrong with their network connection but they were very unhelpful and kept shrugging and blaming our laptop (and iPod) which works everywhere else in the world! Apparently many of their “foreign” guests get this problem and it is down to “foreign” equipment! Wifi was one of the criteria for booking this hotel. The breakfast buffet was an excellent spread with a good choice of hot and cold options, eggs, meats, cheese, fresh fruit, breads and cereals. For a great day out from Horbranz it is an easy drive to the lovely walled town of Meersburg where a boat will get you across the lake to Konstanz in half an hour. Lunch on the terrace of the Konzil Gaststatten right at the water’s edge is highly recommended!
