Maybe we expected too much from this place. The website makes it look amazing. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed.
The room was OK, with decent hot water. It was a little small but it will do. The disappointment was more in the atmosphere. As the only non-German speaking guests it got a little lonely and the staff didn't help.
The manager was fine and the gate guard excellent, but the other staff seemed to specialise in shouting at each other outside our room early in the morning, hogging the TV, hogging the WiFi (only 5 people can connect at a time) and giving us surly glaces when we said no to their food (expensive and not great).
The trouble with this is that they are so far out of town that you end up spending quite a bit a time there.
Overall, it's a fairly basic guest house, but that's about it.
