The website mixes information on two separate hotels, which leads to confusion.
First: I confused the prices of this place for those of the more expensive one. I thought I was making a bargain with my Ebay bid, but this was the cheaper place of two, and my bid was way over the price posted at the hotel. Bummer.
The place is a study in minimal staff management - you will be welcomed with a sign on the door asking you to phone for instructions. That presumes you have a cell phone, and I do not. The only staff we met was one at breakfast.The buffet was nice, but the coffee was weak, and the boiled eggs overcooked.
Second: They also said Dogs were welcome, but posted no price ( later, I found a price on the second hotel, not this one), so we felt a bit gouged when hit with a 10 Euros per day fee for a tiny Pooch. Foul play.
Otherwise, the room was clean, and the bed acceptable. We really enjoyed the balcony. The village is tiny and cute and Alpirsbach was a nice discovery. The Monastery/Brewery tour is an amazing value at 6.50 - an hour-long history lesson, then 2 free generous (33cl) samplings, and a free stone mug for free. This is an incredible value. The beer jam at the gift shop, however, tastes mostly of sugar.
* Why do hotels in general let kids stay free, but charge up to 15 Euros per day for a tiny Dog?
