On arrival we were met and were helped to carry our luggage from the car to our room. This is not a modern hotel - presumably 'stranded on the beach' was expecting something more modern - but his or her description of a 'horrible, dirty, squalid little B&B' could not have been further from the truth. We had no concerns at all in that respect. Our room was warm (our visit was at the end of October), it was perfectly clean and, although the breakfast rooms are not exactly large, there was a very cosy atmosphere and plenty of choice for breakfast. Ralf, who runs this small hotel, is an extremely pleasant and friendly guy - and, if the purpose of your visit is to see Colditz Castle, which is a five minute walk away, Ralf is an expert on the subject and has a huge library of books on the subject for guests to browse. We notice most reviews on this pleasant hotel are favourable and would urge readers to disregard 'strandedonthebeach's review as it appears to us to be extremely inaccurate, judging by our experience there. We would certainly be more than happy to return, not just because of the hotel and its facilities, but for the friendly welcome extended to us by Ralf.
