This is a really nice little hotel that is full of character and centrally located in Aurich. It is perfectly situated for the town's shops, restaurants and cafes. Another reviewer commented that the Hochzeithaus is what you'd like you house to look like and I agree entirely with that sentiment. It is traditionally and tastefully furnished in the public areas in keeping with the style of the building and this approach was replicated in the rooms. The bed was very comfortable and the duvet provided warmth and "cosiness" in a way that Europeans seem to do so well. It was pleasing to find that room had a safe. The bathroom was small but entirely adequate and spotlessly clean. The hotel has a car park at the back which I estimate can accommodate 7-8 cars and therefore at peak times then you may have to park elsewhere especially if there is a wedding on. You can't reserve a space. Unfortunately dinner was not available on the nights that I was staying there but based on the excellent breakfast for the one morning I was able to take advantage of it then I would have been very happy to eat dinner had it been available.
What really stands out for me is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff who spoke very good English. I was leaving at 6.30am on a Saturday which was before breakfast was being served and therefore would miss out. However completely unprompted I was a offered a complimentary packed lunch instead - what a lovely thought and gratefully received.
Readers who have looked any some of my other reviews will note that hotel cleanliness is a bugbear of mine. Suffice to say the Hochzeithaus was immaculate. Why can't more British hoteliers learn from the Germans?
