We visited this hotel in May of 2012. It was our sixth day of our vacation, which had been fairly stressful because of rain and driving conditions. My back was hurting and we weren't really sure of where we'd be staying from day to day. I'd researched this hotel before we left home. One of the things that stuck in my mind was the jacuzzi, which I was craving when we arrived without a reservation (not normally my standard way to travel but I'm a bit more flexible when we have a car). As soon as we drove up and I walked into the hotel, I knew that this was the place for us. Fortunately there was one room left, which was amazing when we realized that this was the start of a very long holiday weekend (May 1st/Labor Day). Stephane was a charming host and made us feel immediately at home. He allowed us to store a few of our food items in his refrigerator. Our room was on the first floor (up one set of stairs) and was spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was large. We had a television with many choices of channels. We first took advantage of the jacuzzi which was at a large window looking out over the backyard that Stephane was tending to while we had a long soak. Afterwards we had a glass of wine at the side of the river that runs along the back of the property. They have gourmet dinners on the weekends but we weren't aware of that and were only staying one night. Next time we will make sure to try the meal. The morning breakfast buffet had a lot of choices and it was nice to chat with the other vacationers. Several of them were from Germany on a holiday weekend. When we checked out we were heading for the Route du Vin. Stephane gave us some suggestions of the best ones to visit and we weren't disappointed with his choices. We would gladly stay at Les Pres d'Ondine again. We would make it our base for wine tasting tours. It was much more relaxing than our stay in Ribeauville which was charming but overrun with tourists.
