8/10 Very good

English is the international language, not German
Very good hotel. Shame all documents and information was sent in German. I requested a copy in English and never received it. How can international travellers accept conditions in a local language they don’t understand? Very annoying

The motel is fantastic for a few days away. Breakfast is a little expensive for bread and yoghurt. The room was great but could be better with tea and coffee in the room.
