My husband and I decided on impulse to attend a concert in the Cathedral of St Blasien one Saturday night and wanted to find somewhere to stay locally as it was just too far to drive home comfortably. We chose this hotel because it was just over the square from the Cathedral and it looked inviting and comfortable.
Despite short notice of our booking, we were immediately made to feel welcome, and our room was ready for us. We were personally shown to our room by a member of staff, who gave us all the necessary information about breakfast times the next morning, which door and key would let us come and go as we pleased when the café and restaurant were closed, and the opening hours of the restaurant should we care to take dinner there that evening. It was a lovely change from being given a key and directions by an impersonal front desk.
Our room was traditionally but well furnished with a good sized wardrobe, comfortable large bed, a state of the art TV and a view overlooking the Cathedral. The bathroom was compact but everything worked a treat with plenty of hot water and a good shower. There were plenty of towels and soap and shampoo was provided.
We decided to have dinner in the restaurant before the concert. The decor was bright and clean, and the menu varied and fairly priced. Our orders were taken promptly and our requests for boiled potatoes instead of chipped potatoes and for a main course only from a 3 course dinner were accepted very positively. The food was served by the chef himself (actually the hotel owner Mr Brodmann) and it was hot, fresh and very tasty. We succumbed to the inevitable Black Forest Gateau which was generous in its kirsch and cherries!
We spent a good and comfortable night, and enjoyed our buffet breakfast, characterised by different varieties of local breads, cold cuts, freshly-boiled eggs and fruit.
Checkout was painless, and we felt that we had had excellent value for money, and a weekend to remember ......... and they didn't hold it against us when we got home and found that we hadn't returned the room key by mistake. We hope very much to return, and not make the same mistake twice!
The hotel is well placed for exploring the southern Black Forest, Titisee, the nearby thermal Radon Baths and Switzerland, including Schaffhausern's Rhinefalls and Basel. And this locality is not only a walker's paradise, but also good for you, being one of the many areas recommended for the healthy quality of its air.
