Spent a 3 night stay as part of Nation al Holidays Christmas Markets package.I found this hotel to be very good. The room was spacious and extremely clean and warm. There was a plentiful supply of hot water but the shower pressure was poor. There have been many crticisms about the food at this hotel but I found it quite good. especially as it was a budget holiday There was a choice of main course but not entree and dessert and the breakfast was more then adequate with scram bled and boiled eggs, a varied choice of meats, fruit , yoghourt bread, pastries and jams. No one couldask for more. The service was friendly and the hotel staff very helpful at all times.Most staff speak excellent English and though my German is n ot fluent I think it helps to say Guten Morgen, Guten Abend and Danke Schon (good morning, good evening and thank you) At least it shows that you are making the effort..Now the downside is this. I was puzzled with the appearance of this hotel as the image on line was different to the hotel'spublicity! The image I had was of a tyrolean sandstone chalet type residenace which appeared to be in the middle of nowhere. On the other hand the Hotel Baeren Stube was in the village but looked nothing like thephotograph I had of it. I took me sometime to realise that the front e ntrance to the hotel was actually at the side i.e.not facing the main road and what I had taken to be two different hotels was in fact only one. I had already rung the hotel asking to be put in the main part and n ot in the annex which means walking between buildings mornings and evenings. I was assured I would be in the main building but of course I was not. I was with the rest of the coach in the annex. It is only a few yards but it slopes downhill and is extremely poorly lit. It was also snowing so was slippy Trying to pull a suitcase along in those conditions when you are in your eighties is no job for a cissy. Fortunately the other coach members were very helpful. but National Holidays needs to take this up with the hotel, There were other coaches in the hotel, German French and Spanish all of whom seemed to be accommodated in the main hotel. I wiuld have preferred to pay a little extra for the convenience of being in the main building (no problem in the summer) The entertainment at this hotel is excellent but unfortunately there is n o lounge in which to sit. Satellite TV is n ot much good when the only En glish programme to be got is CNN news..One other drawback is no telephone in the room; a must for emergencies. To all those who are going on a visit to the very beautiful Schwartzwald area have a lovery holiday and take care!!
