This is a charming, family-run, hotel on the quiet main street of the small town of Glottertal. At the front, it overlooks the vineyards and at the back a small river. It is very conveniently located to discover the town and the beautiful surrounding area.
Our superior room was much bigger than expected, almost a suite, with a sitting area and two small terraces, one overlooking the river (but no view). The television was of good quality and could be turned to face both the bedroom or the sitting area. The bathroom (shower) was not big but clean and functional with a good selection of toiletries. We ate in the restaurant on two occasions and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The menu provides a good selection of fresh local dishes and the wine list includes those from the vineyard across the road. Menus are also available with English and French translation which helps. The waiter was very welcoming and speaks good English which helped tremendously.
The bedding was of good quality, but we found it strange to find our extra-large double bed with separate quilts and sheets.
Breakfast was impressive with a wide range of fresh fruits, cheeses, hams, cereals, eggs.
As mentioned this is a family-run hotel and the wife (who speaks very good English) was very welcoming, and if I’m not mistaken, manages both the reception and making up the rooms. The husband on the other-hand is the Chef, doubles up at reception and has very limited English. I loved this, since when travelling abroad I love trying to understand different cultures and to have fun communicating.
Unfortunately, when we arrived at reception following our meal, we were given our keys and to our dismay found that the room had not been cleaned. This should never had have happened. I would have preferred to wait in the restaurant or in the tiny lounge area.
The Wifi worked but was slow.
