The rooms were basic and clean Being Easter 🐣 it was expensive for what was on offer. I had always wanted to stay there The restaurant was incredibly stark and not in the flavour of Bavarian. The lease had just been taken over . The service there was pleasant and friendly. Unfortunately the pork knuckle was barely edible😆 My partner had not experienced the food before and I was embarrassed for him My meal was better but not what I am used to .

I would have liked the little silver door latch to still be on the door for extra safety , it may have only been my door not all doors.
