“Old school with tons of charm”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

This hotel is very, like VERY old, and it shows. The rooms look like something from the 70's, but they are clean, spacious and most of them with a scenic view of River Rhine. The buildings look like a castle, and they are situated in the small but lovely city of Gottlieben.

Food is typically German = Good, simple and a lot of it. Service is as every where around that part of Europe: Good Everything works like a clock.

Rooms are pretty old, the bed a little bit too soft. Staff is friendly and the breakfast is super.
Considering the area, which is pretty expensive this hotel is not bad, not nothing special neither.
The thing I didn't like is that the pictures they use in the website are completely different from the reality.

I went to this hotel the worst season, in winter, January, it is located right on the Konstanz lake, beautifull old house, great rooms in old style, good bed, everything very clean. The recpetion very good, food and service excellent. i can recommend this place for a nice family vacation, i can imagine that in the summer it must be packed... Gottlieben is the smallest village in switzerland in number of inhabitants, next to the hotel there is an amazing castel own by a famous opera singer.

It is our favorite place to stay when in Switzerland's Northeast. A few km from the ancient Konstanz and on the Rhine river connecting the Lake of Constance's 'upper lake' and 'lower lake' you find this small agglomeration of Hotels, restaurants and, across a moat, a privately owned mysterious chateau. The Hotel is a classic, quiet and comfortable. Excellent traditional cuisine and wines from the region. Get a room overlooking the Rhine and watch the Swans or the skiff rowers glide through the waters early morning. A hundert meters across, in Germany, an extended riedy marsh adds to the sense of timeless tranquility.
Do not miss to visit the small castle Arenenberg on the hill above Ermatingen, the place of Hortense de Beauharnais and her son who was to become Napoleon III.

We had a delicate dinner in the restaurant with fresh fish and a nice view at the riverside. We enjoyed the silence during night and the fresh air. It is a very nice place to stay for a few days also for walking or biking. Unfortunately we stayed there only one night.
