This was the second consecutive Christmas my wife and I had spent at this hotel. It did not disappoint second time around. The location is very convenient for Lake Constance and the town centre. Staff and owners are very helpful and it is a distinct advantage to be recognised by the staff. All meals were still up to expectations and every dish and plate on the breakfast bar was replenished quickly. Staff were very friendly and full of smiles. A nice highlight was the bottle of wine and gifts which accompanied the Christmas Evening Meal.
The one drawback was the absence of a smoking ban throughout the hotel. Whilst banned in the dinning room, it was allowed in the reception area and in the bar. Since there was only one of each, the only way to avoid the stench of smoke clinging to one's clothes was to leave the hotel and walk in to the centre of Bregenz. Since this had a living crib and a stall selling Glühwein, that was by no means a drawback. The Austrians rejected a smoking ban so this is a common problem throughout Austria. Despite that, it is a lovely hotel.
One tip for anyone booking any hotel is this. Contact the hotel first, even if you have booked through a travel agent or tour company. Explain what room you want and ask if such is available. If it is, book it personally. All hotel staff prefer the personal touch. It offsets the 'nasty' customers who pass through their doors! Be nice and reap the rewards.
