The owners were so welcoming and helpful, despite the obvious language barrier - this is provincial Germany, after all. With the combination of my limited knowledge of German (25 years ago at high school!) and the owners limited English, we did our best to muddle through. They sorted our 'Gastetickets', which entitle you to free use of the buses and apparently discounts too, welcomed us for the set meal Sunday lunch (much appreciated after our adrenaline-fueled trip to the Nurburgring!) and arranged a taxi for us when we wished to visit Cochem (the adjacent, larger town) without waiting for the bus.
The room was of a good size, with two 3/4 sized beds put together (so a small gap between the mattresses) and a TV provided too (once we found the extension power cable to plug it in!). The fixtures and fittings were not the most modern, but were clean and maintained, which was fine really and added to the quaint charm of the place.
However, the room was uncomfortably warm, with the duvet being suited to a harsh winter climate and with only a heater unit and no fan in the room, we found we had to sleep on top of the covers most nights, with the windows as open as we could, which in turn resulted in several mosquito bites over the course of our stay.
The beds themselves seem to creak and groan a great deal too, which makes a restless night in the heat of summer even more of an anxious experience.
The tourist office was, annoyingly, closed during our stay too - Go to the Cochem one!
