We went to the Hotel Gierer on the recommendation of close relations, choosing to spend our first holiday with our 5 month-old son there.
First impressions were excellent. The hotel is clean, smart and tidy. The welcome was good.
We went over to the Weinstube next door for lunch - the cheese board was not inspired (too much prepacked sliced cheese), but we were sufficiently satisfied.
The half-board we had booked was sufficient to convince us that half-board was not our thing. The food was not particularly exciting (although well presented) and, though tasteful, the room in which we sat had more of an atmosphere of "feeding time" than a quality dinner. It should be noted that our babyphone did not work in that room, and so we switched to just bed & breakfast and ate in the Weinstube. I can only recommend this, as the Weinstube food was VERY good (even if the cheese problem persisted!). The beer is home-brewed and there is an excellent choice of wines.
What must be said is that the service was EXCELLENT. Changing our stay was no problem, staff remembered us and treated us more than politely. Even the ladies that made the beds were very friendly.
The spa area was also very well-appointed. There is a pool and also a sauna area. All of them were modern, clean and very tasteful. This was more than that which was to be expected from "just another hotel".
We had a family room, which did seem to have had its fair share of knocks. There were two holes in the bathroom door, and there were a few small things which needed attending to. But otherwise, the room was fine.
The location is about 15 minutes' walk from the centre of Wasserburg, a pretty village by Lake Constance. By car, you can be in Lindau in about 10 minutes. The hotel is more or less in the country, so open-air activities are very easily managed.
To sum up, this hotel is definitely worth a visit. There are a few things which need to be sorted out, but otherwise, this is great for couples or families.
