This is a small hotel that excels in everything it does. It is spotlessly clean and unfailingly helpful. The staff were warm and helpful and clearly had thought through so many small details. The breakfast was included which makes a nice change from the big boys and was full of fresh local produce with a different theme each day. The...

Just a couple of lines to thank all the staff of Domstern Hotel for the great service offered during my stay (August 28-September 4). This hotel is definitely worthy of the highest recommendation.

I stayed at the Hotel Domstern for 4 x nights and experienced top service from friendly staff. The double room was a good size and we had access to a fan, iron and a small fridge. This Hotel is within walking distance from the main station and the town square. It is also close to a laundry and supermarket. The...

I, my husband and our 8 year old daughter stayed for three nights in the newly refurbished family room 402 on the fourth floor, accessed via the small but efficient lift. We were impressed with the standard of decor and found the free and reliable wi-fi internet very handy. I think the only UK TV channel was BBC News 24,...

We stayed here one night on our journey to Austria and Slovenia. We arrived quite late having let the hotel know. I am slightly disabled and had my folding scooter with me. There was no problem about taking it to the room or charging the battery. The room was lovely and the bed comfortable. Everything very clean. The bathroom was...

Dear PerthLaura, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! Of course we are disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay with us, or at least we were not able to live up to your expectations. On the other hand for us critical remarks are the ones we can definitely learn the most from, so that...

I can't say enough good things about this hotel.
