Sehr freundliches und aufmerksames Personal. Eine sehr gute und reelle Küche. Hier versteht man noch zu Kochen. Alles frisch und selbstgemacht. Das Panna Cotta z.B. war ein Traum. Sehr schönes großes Zimmer mit Balkon und Blick ins Grüne. Bequeme Matratzen, tolles Bad. Kostenloses Parken - und das alles kurz vor den Toren der Stadt. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall gerne wieder und können das Hotel weiterempfehlen.

Etwas außerhalb Kulmbachs gelegen, in einem schönen Tal. Großer Parkplatz.
Herausstellen möchte ich den persönlichen Service beim Frühstück. Das hat mir sehr gut gefallen.

Zimmer: Ordentlich und angenehm eingerichtet. Besonders hat mir der klassische Schlüssel mit Anhänger gefallen.

Ruhig, Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis
