PROS I had a very healthy fulfilling stay. As my title indicate, I had plentiful of all 4 activities daily. Hotel facilities and personnels were very nice and supportive. Be warn though, it is very quiet area, and one needs a car for supermarket etc. the massage was very rejuvenating.
PROS Mir hat vor allem die Einrichtung und das Ambiente des Hotels gefallen, insbesondere das geschmackvolle Ausstellen von Werken verschiedenster Künstler.
"I had a wonderful time. The yoga practice was a teacher who really enjoyed his profession. The Ayurvedic food was delicious. The several saunas' in the wellness area were new and clean. Well, the value for money is just outstanding."
"Only minor thing to be aware of is that the hotel is not purely focused on yoga, Ayurveda, or wellness. So you also find there a pizzeria, Italian delicatessen, and a ski-room for those who like langlauf. The hotel really has this 'gemutlich' atmosphere. If you go here, a trip to Seiffen is really recommended, to buy the typical wooden German Christmas products. The shops are also open on Sundays and that is quite unique in Germany country."

"We stayed here to go to the various Christmas markets in the small towns. We were checked in with a warm drink. The owner was very friendly and helped us plan out our market journeys. We had a half-pension breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was typical, meats, cheeses, fruit, eggs, and lots of coffee. Dinner was from a selection of three entrées and every night was different. Everything we ate was delicious. Our rooms were comfortable. I highly recommend this place if you are going to be in this area."

"We booked here for one night only on our way from Vienna to Berlin, and that's a shame because I would happily stay there for longer, especially when I realized that it's a stone's throw from Glashutte, German watchmaker's heartland. The hotel is really nice, with this special charm of a family run guest house. Rooms are very clean and cozy and the breakfast is really nice. Very nice service as well and although you may find it difficult to communicate in English, I would not consider it an issue though."

"This German hotel was one of the best we have stayed in. We were pleasantly surprised, as it was a last minute booking and we didn't have a lot of availability to choose from. It was warm and cozy and the only problem we encountered was the fact that we only speak English, even though we live in Germany, and only know enough German to squeek by. The front desk was very helpful, the rooms were cozy and clean, there was free Wi-Fi, and the restaurant was to die for. One waiter spoke good English and the other one a little bit. We are so happy we stayed here even though we were afraid we were going to get stuck in the snow on the very narrow road to the hotel; the wind was blowing hard and there were no snow plows anywhere. We did make it and were happy to be checked in and settled for the night."
