The result was 21 top suites and rooms, a new kitchen, lobby, hotel bar, dining room and an authentic Bregenzerwälder Stube (Bregenzerwald Tavern), which offers a particularly cosy ambience for a la carte guests. Only local, genuine materials such as wood, stone, leather and metal were used in the renovation and new construction. Guests enjoy the new Alpine architectural style and so do your hosts Christian and Nicole.
