The views of the mountains and valleys from this hotel are spectacular. (Be sure to book a room with mountain/valley views - a "talblick"). The rooms are old, small and sparse - almost what one might expect at a Pennsylvania Dutch hotel. The beds are single size, and very short - a problem for tall people. No safes in the rooms. There are no televisions (the view is the TV). If one wants ice, one must request it from room service.
We would recommend to, at least, get a Superior room. The Doppelzimmer is very small and tight for two people.
The public rooms in the hotel, including the dining room, are very attractive.
The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is varied and fine.
What is disturbing is the lack of maintenance on the exterior of the building. Paint is falling off, and bare wood is exposed in many areas. The hotel desperately needs to be painted immediately, before the wood is destroyed.
There is a funicula/train that takes one up the mountain to the hotel. Be forewarned: there are still a lot of steps to climb - a challenge if one has large, heavy suitcases. Ask in advance for assistance with carrying suitcases, if it is needed.
A stay at this hotel can be a very pleasant, memorable experience.More
