Uns to Huus was a wonderful surprise and was surely a better choice than a conventional hotel. Splendidly positioned only a few blocks away from the charming Spiekeroog village center, this quiet and historic house offers a charming outlook over the garden-like walkways of this car-free island. The breakfast, which is included with the lodging fees, is nothing short of astounding. It not only offers an amazing assortment of wonderfully fresh bread and "Brotchen" (rolls, buns) along with an ample supply of cheese and sausage--the standard German breakfast fare--but it also abounds in delicacies learned during the chef-proprietor's travels (which sometimes results in pleasingly startling juxtapositions such as Buffalo chicken wings adjacent to tropical fruit and alongside stuffed Italian peppers). Uns to Huus as a whole is immaculately clean; the service is genial, friendly, eager, and refreshingly competent. The only minor drawback--the only reason that this is a four-point rather than a five-point rating--is the paradoxical indulgence of a certain far-northern austerity. The all-white, minimally ornamented rooms feature predictable and somewhat generic first-generation modern furniture; the bathrooms, although fresh and highly functional, are somewhat clumsy, perhaps as a result of the attempt to place modern fixtures in an old structure; and the two-person beds are comprised of two separate mattresses, creating a separation-gulley between sleepers. All in all, this is clearly one of the best, most charming offerings on this windy isle. And it's only a block or two from one of the best bakeries in northern Germany (the Insel-Backerei)!
